Keep Your Little Ones Protected This Season Ask Us About Playground Mulch

Do you have a kids playground? We also offer safety playground mulch delivery.

Certified Playground Mulch, when applied to proper depth of 6″ or more provides a cushion, and reduces impacts and injuries when children fall. This mulch is specially chipped with rounded edges to help reduce the risk of splinters.

FAQ Ask Us Anything!

The biggest difference between Playground Mulch and Regular Mulch, is that certified playground mulch is chipped or shredded differently to allow for a more rounded shape and reducing sharper jagged pieces.  The round shape allows air pockets to sit in between the layers, and when the mulch is installed at thicknesses greater than 6″ , the area can feel like has a little bounce to it.  This can reduce the likelihood of injury if a child falls.
Other differences include, a lighter color compared to premium mulch, and normally the mulch can be rinsed to reduce dirt, so the kids stay cleaner as they play.  Playground mulch does have some downfalls, such as, it can cost more than regular mulch, it will allow more weeds to grow due to the air pockets, and major rain or water flow can move the mulch around. 
Regular racking is recommended to maintain an even surface.

Adding a 2.5″ layer of mulch covers about 130 square feet.

This depends on the size of the Mulch bag.  A cubic yard of mulch is 27 cubic feet.    Common sizes are:

  • ¾ cubic foot = 36 bags
  • 1.5 cubic foot bags = 18 Bags
  • 2 cubic foot bags = 13.5 bags

The answer to this depends on 4 things.

  1. How fare the mulch bed locations are from the pile or material.
  2. The complexity of the landscape.
  3. The tools involved, specifically the size of the wheel barrow. 
  4. The effort of the person doing the work. For the average homeowner, under average conditions, plan 2 hours for every cubic yard of mulch.

The size of the home and size of the landscape beds determines how much mulch is needed. The average cost for material, labor and delivery is around $500 OR starting price of $282.
