The shredded playground mulch is made of recycled pallets. This playground mulch is considered a coarse mulch and consists of wood strips. Our playground mulches meet the government requirements as specified under ASTM F1292-17A (Section 4.2) and are certified by the International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association.
Coverage: One cubic yard of the Shredded Playground mulch covers an area of 9 x 12 at three inches deep.
Weight: 1 cubic yard of the Shredded Playground weighs approximately 500-600 pounds. Most standard pick-up trucks (ex. F150) or single axle, 5x8, trailer can hold two yards.
When using this mulch around plants to keep in moisture and keep weed growth down, initial layers should be 3-4 inches deep.
When using as a playground mulch the recommended depth is based on the type of playground equipment present and the possible height a child could fall.
Follow guidelines as specified by the equipment you are installing or by referencing the current government guidelines.
