What is Rubber Mulch?

Rubber Mulch is a soft play surface made from bark look alike shreds of recycled firm rubber car and truck tyres, dyed if necessary for multicolour options.


Rubber Mulch provides an easy and environmentally beneficial and safe soft surface.


It is an inexpensive, easy option to wet pour.


The ground works are straight forward and only requires a compacted soil and membrane for sublayer.


No edging is required as Rubber Mulch can be tapered off easily by our installers.

How it Works and how we install rubber mulch!

The coloured rubber mulch comes in 10kg sacks, and the resins come in 25kg drums.


The ratio we work to is very straight forward each square metre of 50mm depth needs 20kg mulch and 4kg resin.


We mix the rubber mulch using one to 3 large 120l forced action mixers at any one time depending on the size of the area to be completed. The mixers are specially designed for mixing the rubber and resin thoroughly.


The best mix of mulch to resin should be a 5:1 ratio.

Specific Laying Method for Resin Bound Rubber Mulch!


Rubber mulch and the specialist resins are transported to site in 10kg bags of rubber mulch and 25kg barrels resin. To mix correctly, we use a specialist forced action mixers and timed correctly.


Our teams Prepare the ground by levelling the current base. We then lay a weed resistant membrane over the soil or stoned up area. Edging can be used if required, or we can taper into grass etc.; otherwise, the edges can drop into a “V” channel dug out at 45 degrees.


We Make the rubber mulch mix by placing 2 x 10kg bag or 2 bags if you are blending colours in the mixer. We ensure a full weight of the resin binder from the drum goes in a measuring jug. The ratio is 5:1 by weight or 5:1 by volume (1kg = 1.1liters). Add 4kgs of resin to each 20kgs of mulch. Let the rubber and resin mix for 4-5 minutes. Pour straight from the mixer or via buckets or barrows to the area being worked on.


We use a gauge to ensure a consistent depth. It can be tampered to the ground usually to 50mm. Do not compact/squash it. This part is a fine art to ensure your finished rubber mulch surface is as flat as possible. A two-person qualified team could install in the region of 100sq metres per day. Our teams combined can install in region 500 sq meters per day if required.
