It's nice stuff but really only cost effective for commercial spaces. Home owners are a lot better off with specialized wood chips you can buy by the yard from landscape supply companies. Do not buy sand or such from big box stores - it is 10-20x the cost.

You can find the mats at a farm supply store, used for horse stall floors.

A guy that worked for me his daughter went to a pre school that had the chopped up tires when he went to pick her up at night it looked like she had been playing in a pile of coal dust. This was everyday he said it washed out ok though.

Im not sure if this will help or not. My aunt about 15 years ago when I lived with her, in the horse stalls she layed down the 4'x8' rubber mats. Not sure where she got them, but all i know is she ordered them online somewhere. Possibly farm equipment mats?
