Rubber Playground Mulch
Looking for advice using rubber playground mulch under a residential play set. Location is Tucson, AZ.
Here, sand tends to get and stay quite hot and of course is tracked inside very easily. Rapid decomposition and temperature issues are probably why I never see wood chips here at public playgrounds. I'm not sure why pea gravel is not in favor but I can honestly say no playgrounds here use it. Most public playgrounds have a mixture of rubberized mats and sand.
Has anyone used rubber playground mulch? It seems there are a multitude of companies and other than requesting samples from each one, I'm at a loss to find an easy way of choosing among them.
