Mulch has been utilized in yards and flower gardens for hundreds of years. Mulch, which is typically made from organic materials like bark and wood, serves to keep soil moisture in place, promote plant growth from extreme heat, and keep weeds from sprouting in the soil. Traditional wood mulch, on the other hand, degrades over time and requires reapplication every year or two. If you've ever added mulch to flower beds, you know how time-consuming it can be and how much more mulch is always needed than you expect. Wood mulch is cheap and easy to come by, but it doesn't stay very long.
It wasn't until 1990 that recycled tires were first employed as a ground cover alternative. In a report, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) referred to waste tires as a "playground gravel alternative". Improvements in tire recycling technology and equipment enabled the production of wire-free rubber mulch to bemore beneficial and economical for recycling enterprises during the next decade. Rubber mulch is now more widely available for use in planters.

Long-lasting Playground Rubber Mulch
Wood mulch is a recyclable substance, so homeowners should change it on a regular basis. The small wood chips absorb the water when it rains, are exposed to the sun’s rays, and are subjected to the freeze-thaw cycle during the winter's freezing wind. All of these factors work together to break down the wood until it is unidentifiable from the underneath soil.
