3 Keys to Playground Mulch

  1. Proper Depth 
  •  Having 8-12 inches of mulch depth will ensure a “bounce affect” when children fall on the surface.  This details is one of the specs in the ASTM certification. (American Society for Testing Materials)

     2. Chipped vs. Shredded

  • A quality playground mulch will have a chipped consistency rather than shredded.  This cuts down on splinters, and doesn’t stick to socks nearly as much.

     3. Non-dyed Material

  • Most mulch dyes are not very mouth and hair friendly.  They might look pretty, but to a discerning 3 year old pallet, not so much.
