Installation Guidelines for Playground
The ground area where the playground will lie should either be in location that will not hold water, or have slight grade to allow for proper drainage. In areas where drainage could be an issue; it is recommended to install a drain tile system, with a 3” base of pea gravel or rock to allow for proper drainage.
Heavy duty mesh paper should be installed under the mulch to separate the mulch from what lies beneath. Depending on the size of the playground, it is recommended to use large rolls of mesh paper (12’ width rolls) to minimize the number seams.
Use landscape stakes to stake down the mesh paper. Make sure the stakes are completely hammered down.
A border is recommended to enclose the playground to contain the mulch. It is recommended to have a few inches between the top of the border and the top of the mulch.
It is recommended to loosely compact the mulch to either 3 or 6 inches to achieve the desired fall height rating.
Installation for Landscaping
Install Mulch at a 2" depth.
It is not necessary, but recommended to install Mulch over a mesh paper. Using a mesh paper will increase coverage per bag/box and decrease risk of weeds. Also, using felt type weed fabric will help keep the mulch in place.
If installing Mulch over existing mulch/soil, make sure the ground surface is a compacted material, free of debris and loose objects. Rubber Mulch will look its best when not mixed in with other debris.
When installing Rubber Mulch in mulch/plant beds, it is recommended that the beds have a border to help contain the mulch. The border can either be a raised border such as a poured concrete/brick border, or a dug border such as a 2” deep trench around the bed.
To clear leaves and other debris off the top of the Mulch, use a blower on a low setting. Since Rubber Mulch is heavier than grass clippings and leaves, it will stay in place while the debris is blown away.
