GroundSmartRubber Mulch is uniquely designed and manufactured to not only meet, but exceed today’s playground safety standards and guidelines, including American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) F1292-13, American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) F1951-99, and American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) F3012, cushioning a child’s fall and providing up to 2.5 times more fall height protection than grass, dirt, sand, pea gravel, wood mulch, engineered wood fiber (EWF), rubber tiles or poured in place surfaces.

Unlike wood mulch, it resists rodent infestations and doesn’t attract termites, carpenter ants or other harmful, wood destroying insects, reducing the need for harsh insect control chemicals, and making it the ideal mulch for use in projects and play areas around buildings, foundations and wood structures.
