Rubber Playground Flooring – Is Rubber Mulch Right For You?
Rubber playground flooring is suitable for use in a number of different areas and for different purposes. It can be used to create colourful, safer playgrounds and to enliven borders and landscaping. But how do you know whether rubber mulch is the right material for your playground or park?
The best way to determine whether rubber mulch playground flooring is right for you is to ask yourself the following question: do you want an environmentally friendly alternative to bark? One of the problems with bark is that it degrades over time and is very susceptible to weather conditions. It gets blown around in the wind and can wash way over time. Rubber mulch does not suffer from any of these problems. It doesn’t degrade, blow or wash away, and has the added benefit of not attracting animals. This means that it is also a cleaner alternative for areas where children play. The material is also virtually indestructible, meaning that it is highly unlikely to need re-laying or topping up. It also helps you make better use of your time, as no regular raking is required once it is laid by skilled surfacing contractors. You should also consider whether you want to create a more colourful environment. Flooring such as bark looks great when it is first laid, but as soon as it is open to the weather, it loses its lustre. This doesn’t happen with rubber mulch, and because of the wide range of colours that are available, you can develop a much more inviting area for children to play.
