What Makes Rubber Mulch So Resilient?

Rubber mulch is made from recycled rubber tires. When tires are no longer usable on vehicles, they are gathered, cleaned, and shredded into a quality mulch that can offer a lot when it comes to safety and comfort in play areas.

Stays in Place

Rubber mulch is shredded to a consistency that makes it heavy enough to stay put in even strong winds. Sand, wood mulch, and gravel can all erode a lot over the years if the weather takes a turn for the worse, and from everyday traffic that ultimately removes materials from the space. This means you are going to have to replenish your mulch must faster if you don’t use something heavier like rubber.

Reduce Overall Maintenance

If a lot of landscaping work is not something you are into but you want to have a nice looking area around your home, office, or other business, then rubber mulch is something to consider.

Higher Ground Temperatures

If you want to grow some trees or shrubs but you are right on the line as far as temperature tolerance goes, then rubber mulch can make a big difference when it comes to soil temperatures. This means your plants will be more cold hardy all year long.


If you don’t have a big budget for landscaping, then rubber much may be the resilient answer you have been looking for. Rubber mulch comes in several colors as well, so if you are going for a certain look then let us know and we will see what we can do to provide you with the mulch you need.


Trails and walking paths are high traffic areas, but they are no match for the power of rubber mulch. Since you can get rubber mulch in natural looking colors, a lot of people may never notice what they are walking on, but their feet will thank them later since rubber mulch is so much more forgiving to walk on than other mulches.

Attention to Application Method

Rubber mulch is going to last longer and stay in place if it is installed properly. At Pro-Techs, we have a lot of experience making sure mulch is put down with a proper footing system and that safe barriers are in place to prevent mulch from spreading into other areas.
