Tiger Mulch Logo

Bonded, or bound, rubber mulch is becoming increasingly popular as a safety surface for a variety of applications, with its natural looks blending in well with many surrounding, and giving a bark look and effect without the associated maintenance issues.

Bonded Rubber Mulch

Bonded rubber mulch works well as a safety surface under playground equipment, and when laid to the correct depth it can act in accordance with all critical fall height specifications. It is the ideal solution for mile a day tracks for schools, and general run around surfaces in any play environment.

Bound rubber mulch is also ideal for tree pits to create a fixed covering which will not blow or wash away – but is still permeable to allow water to the tree roots.

TigerMulch – the

Leading bonded mulch system

TigerMulch is the country’s premier bonded rubber mulch system, and whilst other versions of the product are available, they lack the durability and longevity that a genuine TigerMulch surface will provide.

Redlynch have been installing the system for many years, and are one of a limited number of license holders in the UK for this bonded mulch surface.

Our highly experienced workforce, combined with using the most reputable materials available, mean an excellent surface will be achieved every time we install one.

How Much Does

Rubber Mulch Cost?

There are many variables which will affect the price of rubber mulch. We use TigerMulch, generally regarded as the best quality bound rubber mulch available. The factors that determine are:

  • Size of area
  • Critical fall height (this determines the depth of the TigerMulch)
  • Access to the area
  • Pattern work and graphics (although what can be done with TigerMulch is restricted)

As an example price, if we say that approximately 100m2 were to be laid, the cost would be between £60 – £130 /m2 + VAT.

These figures exclude any necessary ground preparation works. Again, these costs will vary according to size, access and ground conditions.

Expert Advice:

The staff at Redlynch have been installing children’s playground safety surfacing for almost thirty years, and we feel uniquely qualified to offer sound, honest advice to our customers on matters technical and aesthetic. One of the most important aspects to consider is sub base preparation.

For years now, many companies have claimed that the laying of bound rubber mulch surfaces without a suitable sub base is good practice. In most situations this is completely the wrong way to install any surface type aimed at pedestrian use (other than grass mats – where successful installation is determined by a free draining soil – and some other grass reinforcement systems).

Which other paving system used, anywhere, does not have a sub base below it? Please! Take our advice on this critical aspect in order to avoid a costly and disastrous installation.

BPC found Redlynch to be extremely approachable, professional and flexible throughout the whole process. And in comparison to other vendors, BPC's view was that they were able to offer considerable "playability" from their range at good value.

BPC would not hesitate to recommend Redlynch.
