MULCH CALCULATOR

How much rubber mulch do I need?

In the calculator below, enter the length and width of the area you want to cover.  Then select the desired depth of rubber mulch. Our calculator is for a rectangular shaped area.  

Call (561) 800-2114 or email us if you need help calculating your order amount, especially for more complex shapes.

 

In what size increments can I buy your rubber mulch? 

Because we are a bulk seller and provide the most competitive prices, we only sell in 1/2 and 1 pallet increments.    

What if the calculator calculates a number that is not a 1/2 or 1 pallet increment?  

We prefer to be transparent with our customers so our calculator does not round up to the next pallet.  If for example, it calculates 1.6 pallets, then you can decide whether to order 1.5 or 2 pallets.  Our calculations are a suggestion based on our experience so there is an acceptable variance.

How much area does 1 pallet of rubber mulch cover?  

That depends on how high you want to fill your area.  Our calculator above provides recommendations on what depth to use for different applications.  Below you can find how much 1 pallet (2,000 lbs.) of rubber mulch covers at some different sample depths:

Depth Sq Ft
1.5" 620
2" 470
3" 310
4" 230
6" 150

SAFETY

Safety Features

  • Almost twice the fall height rating as other surfacing products such as wood chips and more than twice the fall height rating of products like playground sand
  • The mulch we sell is tested to have a fall height rating of at least 12' for 6" of mulch depth
  • ASTM F1292‐18 (Section 4.2) and/or ASTM F3351-19 has been met or exceeded
  • ASTM F3012 validated - safe for use as playground surface
  • Non-flammable, in accordance with the Federal Hazardous Substance Act, 16 CFR 1500.44 
  • ADA Compliant - Installed at a non-compacted depth of 6” / 14 pounds per sq ft, it is handicap accessible per ASTM F1951-08 

Maintaining for Safety

  • Rubber mulch is extremely low-maintenance.  There are a few things to consider though to get the most out of your mulch:
  • Immediately after installation and inspection, mark the level of the mulch against the playground equipment, using a permanent marker.
  • Rubber mulch requires periodic raking to restore the material to its safe and proper depth, especially in high traffic areas.
  • Note: Failure to maintain appropriate depth, as determined according to the highest potential fall height,
    may void manufacturer warranty and cause permanent injury or harm.

IPEMA CERTIFIED

Impact Testing

Rubber mulch with IPEMA F1292 under ASTM F3351 certification.

Playground surface impact testing - this certification validates that the impact attenuating performance criterion specified by ASTM F1292‐18 (Section 4.2) and/or ASTM F3351-19 has been met or exceeded.

Playground Safe

Rubber mulch with IPEMA 3012 certification.

Standard specification for loose‐fill rubber - this certification validates the rubber mulch is safe for use as a playground safety surface under and around playground equipment.


PACKAGING  

Regular

Rubber mulch packaged in retails bags on a pallet for total weight of 2,000lbs.

50 bags per pallet.

Supersack

Rubber mulch packaged on a pallet in a supersack for total weight of 2,000lbs.

1 supersack per pallet.

You have options - which is a good thing!  Rubber mulch can be delivered in regular garden bags or supersacks, depending on your preference.  The choice is yours and all packaging options are the same price.  We can help provide guidance to you on what makes the most sense.  Just choose your packaging option above when adding rubber mulch to your shopping cart.

Regular

Regular garden bags are recommended for residential use. They are the most common and versatile. There are 25 bags per half pallet and 50 bags per pallet.  Each bag contains approximately 1.5 to 1.55 cu ft.  Garden bags are perfect for typical residential applications such as spreading rubber mulch over different areas of your yard.  This packaging option is also convenient for when you need to save extra bags for use later.    

Supersack

Supersacks are recommended for commercial use or larger residential applications.  Supersacks make it easier to apply larger volumes of rubber mulch to areas. This method works great when you can move the supersack directly to the application site via forklift or a Bobcat like machine.  Once the supersack is in place, it is lifted via the machine and cut open from the bottom to release the rubber mulch in place.  

*Due to the nature of this being sold in bulk, the weight and volume for a full pallet is an average weight and volume and may vary up or down slightly due to factors such as the package type and the varying density and shape of each piece of rubber mulch.  Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions.
