Redlynch Leisure has over 20 years experience in designing and installing rubber pathways for a variety of customers and uses.
TigerMulch surfacing is our industry leading bound rubber mulch surface. With its natural looks and excellent non slip, hard wearing properties it makes for the ideal surface for ‘Mile A Day’ tracks on a school playground or playing field. See below for further information on Mile A Day tracks. It has also been used as a pathway surface in holiday parks, care homes and golf courses.
Unlike many companies, we strongly recommend installing a pathway onto a well constructed aggregate sub base, to ensure subsiding, cracking and puddling do not become problems just a short time after installation. Although a more expensive option at the start, this will undoubtedly save money in the longer term.
For a more formal look, Flexipath, a mix of rubber coated granules and natural coloured aggregates, can be the perfect pathway for many locations.
TigerMulch – Bound Rubber Mulch
TigerMulch material is a great option for a pathway surface. It is very durable. Rubber mulch is also resistant to becoming slippery in wet or in icy conditions.
TigerMulch looks much like bark mulch, and has a beautiful natural look that blends well in both rural and urban settings.
As it is made from recycled lorry tyres, it’s also a highly sustainable product – a great use for a material that is otherwise difficult to recycle.
Mile A Day Tracks
The ‘Mile A Day’ initiative has rapidly grown in popularity in schools over recent years, as understanding of the importance of a fit and healthy childhood increases.

- Children can run in their uniform
- Helps to improve fitness, health and concentration
Redlynch Leisure can Help
TigerMulch makes an excellent surface for a Mile A Day track. It has a natural look, is soft underfoot, very non – slip and very durable.
As the Mile a Day is a year round activity, grass surfaces can turn to a muddy mess and concrete or tarmac can be quite hard on knee and ankle joints.
Some low cost solutions have poor longevity (frequently resulting from some companies insisting such surfaces can be laid without a suitable sub base to provide support and drainage a complete fallacy in almost all locations). Combine our TigerMulch pathway surface with our expertise in constructing free draining and long lasting sub bases for a Mile A Day track that will provide service for many years to come.
