Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Long Lasting Product This mulch will last forever and costs slightly more than real wood chips. I wanted a heavier mulch that would stay in place on a side bed where the chips would seem to drift and disappear so I expect these rubber chips to stay in place much longer. There is a rubber tire smell at first only when opening the bag and once the chips are laid out the smell is gone very quickly. I believe these chips will do the same as the wooden chips and that is to insulate the plants for winter, providing habitat for hibernating insects such as lady bugs, that it will provide good drainage to the soil and also help to retain moisture in the soil in the hot summer months.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sharp wire in rubber Rubber mulch looks great and at first I was really happy with it until I stepped on something really sharp. After closer inspection there is a bunch of little wires sticking out of some pieces of the mulch! Definitely not safe for kids or pets or anyone for that matter to be walking on! Super disappointed that we have spread about 14 or so of these bags on our property!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Linda We have had black rubber mulch on our garden beds for 6 years and it still looks as good as when we had it put down. We are now installing some new beds and are having problems finding the black rubber mulch again. We highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Long Last Product An excellent product that will last a very long time, looks natural and will provide coverage on the soil and around plants to maintain moisture and provide insulation in winter for the plants and hibernating insects like lady bugs. The heavier mulch stays in place nicely and looks really good. The price is very comparable to wood chips which don't last so long and I find they shift and move to easily. There is a new tire smell at first when opening the packages but once distributed the smell disappears very quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy Decided to try rubber mulch for the front garden as we were tired of the black mulch fading a week after spreading it. Love that this stays black and doesn’t blow around as much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Mulch ever We bought Rubber Mulch in Black from Home Depot begining of last summer. My flower beds were always thick with weeds every year with regular mulch. The gardens were weeded and this Rubber Mulch was put in. This year to my amazement all the mulch was still there not gone like other mulch. Also almost no weed, very few, so worth the money. I would recomment this . The extra price is so worth the money. You save it in one year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I love this product I used it for my kids swingset area. Top it all it’s safe for the kids and looks good and also safe for the environment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mulch! I love this stuff. I've been using it in my garden for several years now. It's a great ground cover and hinders the growth of weeds. Because of the weight of it, it has good staying power meaning that you only have to replenish it every couple of years. The colour stays relatively good for several years, too (not the 12 years it claims though). It is more expensive than other mulches, but, with how long it lasts, it averages out well.

Will bulbs like tulips, daphodils, hyacinths, crocus, etc grow through this mulch?

Asked by: Kasha
Yes, especially if you don't use landscape fabric under the mulch. But it's more for paths and play areas than a garden mulch.

Can you put it directly on top of soil or do you need landscape fabric on soil before first.  Does the rubber smell in the sun?

Asked by: France
Use landscape fabric if you don't want weeds growing through. It does not smell in the sun.

Thinking of using rubber mulch under a swing set but I heard that some mulch from Recycled Tires still contains re-enforcing wires?

Any wires in this rubber mulch?

Only ever purchased rubber mulch once and no wires apparent.
