Should Rubber Mulch Be Used in the Gardens

By James Blee Subscribe to RSS | December 12th 2011 | Views:

Over the last few years, rubber mulch has been coming up as a prospective flooring material for parks, playgrounds and gardens. With the multiple benefits that are associated with it, nowadays they can be found in many parks and playgrounds but when we talk of gardens, it is better to be sure of its application and benefits in order to get the maximum out of it.

So, if you are asking whether or not to use rubber mulch in your garden, my answer is in the negative which might surprise you but once you read through the full article, I am pretty convinced that you too will share similar views with the writer.

Some criticizers say that they come only in red color which might not cope well with the greeneries associated with a garden. However, in reality they come in a large array of colors ranging from blue, brown. Black to turquoise and green and others as well.

Therefore, color is never going to be that big an issue. The major problem they have is the fact that they are highly flammable. Containing petroleum compounds, once ignited, it is real hard to extinguish which makes it dangerous for households.

Apart from this, the rubber mulch gradually break with time due to environmental factors such as fungi, bacteria or sun. On breaking down, they emit several chemicals that are not good for the plants and the environment as well.

Not only that, many vegetables and plants can be severely damaged due to excess zinc leaching out of the mulches. Many times, the excess levels of zinc, aluminum and other minerals that oozes out of the mulches tends to flow down to the roots and leaves of the plants which might ultimately lead the plant to death.
