Rubber Mulch Installation – What You Need To Know
Rubber mulch installation is the ideal way to improve the look of any public space. This includes gardens, playgrounds and general landscaping. But before you rush off to get this rubber surface installed, there are a few things you need to know to ensure that you get the finish you want.
The first and most important thing to know about rubber mulch is that this rubber surfacing is made from recycled rubber and is completely non-toxic. This makes it ideal for areas where you are likely to find small children or animals. Additionally, it is environmentally friendly; meaning that you can improve the look of your outdoor spaces with a clear conscience. The next most important thing to know about rubber mulch is that it can be installed by surfacing contractors on top of almost any existing surface. Concrete, stone and grass surfaces do not need to be dug up before the rubber mulch is laid. However, it is advisable to have a ground survey completed prior to having the mulch installed. This will ensure that the finished article will meet with your approval and that surface water will drain away properly after soaking through the mulch. Finally, it is important to understand that once laid, the rubber mulch will need little in the way of maintenance. It does not rot or degrade, even in harsh weather conditions, and it will not blow away with the wind. This means it does not need regular raking, or topping up. As well as providing you with great looking outdoor spaces it will do wonders for your budget over the longer term.
