East coast playground areas specifically require very deep deposits of material to elevate the safety rating around equipment to soften the blow from a fall. With the ability to move large amount of material faster than any traditional method, these areas can be filled with certified playground mulch so they are up to code in no time.

Safety Rated Materials


Rubber Mulch

Rubber mulch has gained popularity as a playground safety ground covering due to its excellent shock-absorbing properties. Made from recycled tires, it provides a cushioned surface that helps reduce the risk of injuries from falls. The rubber material absorbs impact effectively, minimizing the force exerted on children's joints and bones. Additionally, rubber mulch is durable, long-lasting, and resistant to weather conditions, making it a low-maintenance option for playgrounds. Its non-toxic nature and ability to prevent the growth of weeds and pests further enhance its appeal as a safe and reliable ground covering for children to enjoy their playtime without compromising their well-being.


Wood Chips

Wood chips have long been a popular choice for playground safety ground coverings. They offer a soft and forgiving surface that helps cushion falls and reduce the risk of injuries while children are at play. The interlocking nature of wood chips provides stability and prevents them from compacting, maintaining their impact-absorbing qualities over time. Wood chips are also known for their ability to drain water efficiently, allowing for quick drying after rain or irrigation. With their natural aesthetics and effective safety features, wood chips continue to be a reliable and cost-effective option for playgrounds.


Traditional Mulch

Typically made from shredded bark or wood, mulch offers a practical and visually appealing choice for playground safety ground coverings. Its loose texture provides a soft surface that cushions falls, reducing the likelihood of injuries. It also acts as a natural shock absorber, creating a safe landing zone in case of a fall. In addition to its safety benefits, it helps insulate the ground, maintaining a comfortable temperature for children during play. Mulch remains a popular option due to its affordability, availability, and the natural aesthetic it brings to playgrounds.
