Playground surfaces
Worker blows mulch through hose.

There are numerous products on the market today which have been engineered specifically for fall zones on playgrounds. (We affectionately call them "pedigreed" mulches!) They are tested and certified by physics labs as to impact resiliency. Other criteria include splinter free and non-staining characteristics. Bark mulch is not appropriate for playgrounds. Carolina Mulch Plus takes great pride in installing quality products for our children's play areas. Pneumatic installation such as we provide is the superior method because of the speed of installation as well as the minimal impact on surroundings. Our blower hoses can access areas where use of heavy equipment is not practical. The recommended application rate for use around playground equipment is:
