Paths and walkways with Rubber Mulch

Rubber Mulch is ideal for use on paths and walkways in schools and parks. Firstly, the surface is very durable and long lasting. Binding rubber chip with resin makes a strong, hard wearing surface able to withstand heavy traffic and can be used all year round.

The surface requires little maintenance once installed. The binding of the rubber chip with resin means there is no migration during heavy rainfall and the surface will not compact under footfall.

Here is a sample of DCM Surfaces’ recent Rubber Mulch paths and walkways installed in schools and community centres.

Recently a Northampton based school installed a rubber mulch path linking several wooden structures on a grass landscape. The rubber mulch was laid in brown and blue colours complementing the existing exterior of the surrounding buildings. The path will be suitable for use all year round.

Rubber Mulch is available in a range of colours. It can be laid as a single colour or different coloured rubber chip can be combined.

Standard colours include; brown, blue, green, black, sand and khaki. These colours can be combined together making popular mixes of khaki and brown, blue and sand, green and sand.

Bound Rubber Mulch can also be used effectively on paths in sports facilities and golf clubs; ideal for golf buggies to use. Commonly used also in community centres and public parks; the surface is suitable for wheelchair use.

Rubber Mulch makes an ideal surface for use around tree pit areas; it is commonly used in this application for its natural appearance.
