What’s complementary to backyard swingsets, commercial playground equipment, or any size flower bed? Rubber mulch!  Our product is 99.9% free of fabric, fiber and metal making this the safest choice in rubber mulch.  So soft you can walk barefoot, and unlikely to cause injury if thrown.

SLRM is sold in easy-to-open 40 lb bags (much larger than most other companies) and available in brown ($36.99/40 lb) or black ($29.99/40 lb).  NOTE:  local delivery only, we do not ship outside of MD/VA/DC

Rubber mulch makes backyard swingsets much safer because it does not absorb water or freeze like traditional mulch does. SLRM is also cost effective because you get more shock absorption with less depth, and unlike natural mulches, it doesn’t mildew, rot, or decompose needing replacement.  It does not attract animals or insects, nor does it encourage weed growth like wood products.

Play N’ Learn’s rubber mulch is shredded, not chunked, unlike many competitor’s recycled tires.  It looks very similar to wood mulch but is softer, cleaner, offers more coverage per pound than chunked rubber and has better shock absorption.


Adding a bendy border to your rubber mulch bulk order is another great investment for your yard or playground. Each border is 8 feet long and 6 inches high and includes all of the necessary hardware to affix them to the ground. These borders are flexible, making them great for areas with commercial playground equipment. They come in a brick red color and make an attractive choice for playgrounds and landscaping alike. Available for $84.99 each 8′ timber
