We Pride Ourselves On Quality

At CRW we take the time to research the long-term effects of different sizes of mulch, and our extensive research shows that our size nuggets are simply the best!

Other companies that seem to be initially lower in price use smaller grades of rubber that tend to “travel” out of the area in shoes and clothing while also compacting down to a lower fill height, often resulting in the need for more mulch after the initial installation! CRW’s innovative manufacturing process combines ecological soundness with state-of-the-art technology. Our recycled rubber mulch is shredded to resemble wood mulch, then coated with a trade-secret non-toxic colored finish to produce an attractive, durable surfacing agent. We pride ourselves on quality and exceed the standards set by US Consumer Product Safety Commission and have sold millions of pounds of rubber mulch with a customer satisfaction rate that cannot be matched.

So don’t short yourself quality at the expense of constant maintenance, and get the better grade of Rubber Mulch right off the starting line with CRW Rubber Mulch! Our rubber mulch is in it to win it and keep your playground or landscaping project full to the depth you selected! Buy right and SAVE in the long haul!

Rubber Mulch: A Multi Purpose Solution

playground mulch

It’s a well know fact that there are new uses for rubber mulch being found every year. Initially rubber mulch was introduced to eliminate the need for annual mulching since it doesn’t break down as wood does. Its also heavy enough to stay put and the color will last more than 10 years, so there’s no need to replace it as often as wood. Rubber mulch is a sensible choice and is keeping millions of tires from sitting in landfills, reinforcing the recycling movement making our world a better place to live. With each passing year we see new trends and ideas for the product as we continue to see the amazing results and durability of rubber mulch. From playground surfacing, to walkways, using around pool, drainage, pour in place rubber, roadways, and equestrian arenas, its the popular choice for homeowners, schools, parks and recreation, states and towns, horse farms and more. Rubber mulch is a multi purpose solution for many areas of our society and as long as there are cars on the road, there will be a need to put recycled rubber tires to good use.

Don’t Get Caught in The Cold


A good way to not get caught in the cold is to make sure your property’s winter preparation tasks and repairs are done before the year’s first frost and though we have already seen it here in the Northeast, temperatures are unseasonably warm and you might just still have time.

Getting the exterior of the home ready for the cold winds, snow and ice is critical for keeping Old Man Winter out and keeping it warm and toasty inside. By doing this you’ll lower your energy bills, increase the efficiency and lifespan of your home’s components, and make your property safer.

Heres some tips:

  • Check all the weather-stripping around windows and door frames for leaks to prevent heat loss. Replace weather-stripping, if necessary.
  • Replace all screen doors with storm doors.
  • Replace all window screens with storm windows.
  • Examine wooden window frames for signs of rot or decay. Repair or replace framing to maintain structural integrity.
  • Check for drafts around windows and doors. Caulk inside and out, where necessary, to keep heat from escaping.
  • Inspect windows for cracks, broken glass, or gaps. Repair or replace, if needed.

You’ll also want to make sure to have a licensed professional inspect your heating, and ventilating system for any potential issues, and on the outside inspect your gutters, roof, and drains – bring all seasonal tools inside, and trim overgrown branches back from the house to prevent iced-over or wind-swept branches from causing property damage or a power problem. So be prepared, be safe, and don’t get caught in the cold!

Recycling Protects Natural Habitats For The Future


The process of collecting materials that have been discarded and reprocessing them is key to protecting our Natural Habitats. Doing this is essential to provide a livable environment for the future. However the cost of recycling is anything but cheap and some materials simply cannot be recycled. That’s why it’s important to support the materials that can be recycled therefore reducing the need to consume more natural resources. If used materials are not recycled, new products are made by extracting fresh, raw material from the Earth, through mining and forestry and even though recycling can be expensive, it is necessary for the environment. Recycling is one of the best ways for you to have a positive impact on the world in which we live. CRW is proud to be a Part of the Recycling Industry.

Mulching Is A Preference


Mulching is a preference and some use it religiously. Rubber Mulch not only leaves a sharply manicured look, it also helps to retain moisture and block weeds, as well as provide a nice soft landing for playground areas. There are a few considerations to take into account when considering mulching.

Bags vs. Bulk: The size of the area you are going to mulch should determine how you decide to purchase your product. Naturally, if you are mulching a very large area, it is more cost effective to purchase the mulch in bulk. If you are only planning on mulching a small area, then bags should suffice.

Choosing a Color: You can get Rubber Mulch in a variety of colors like black, red, brown, green, blue, cypress, and even un-dyed. CRW’s recycled rubber mulch is shredded to resemble wood mulch, then coated with a trade-secret non-toxic colored finish to produce an attractive, durable surfacing agent.

Application: Rubber mulch works best around a variety of things like trees, shrubs, flowers, gardens or you can use it as bedding for a walkway or even around a pool.

CRW guarantees the impact performance of our Rubber Mulch for 10 years and we provide a 5-year warranty against total color loss.  Rubber Mulch will still look as good as the day you put it down for years to come and it does not break down and disappear on you. Lastly, containing your mulch is very important so be sure to check out CRWs curbendable rubber Borders – a new bend in playground design. Curve it, turn it, or make it straight, you’re only limited by your imagination!

March For Mulch

March For Mulch

On May 1, the Milroy PTO in Rushville Indiana hosted “March for Mulch.” This all school fund raising effort is paving the way for their playground area to be covered with rubber mulch. The challenge was for each student to raise $25. For the longest time, wood mulch has dominated the market. But rubber mulch is making some waves…big waves at Milroy Elementary School. Rubber mulch is made from recycled tires. Several hundred million tires are discarded every year and now they are being used in the production of rubber mulching. It takes approximately 80 old tires to create one square foot of rubber mulch. Not only does this mulching require no tree sacrifices, it reduces the waste that gets shipped off to your local landfill. The most common use for rubber mulch is for playgrounds. Its superior shock absorption rating outperforms wood mulch, gravel, and sand. Wire-free rubber mulch is the safest playground material available. For the Milroy school playground area, it will provide a completely clean surface that won’t be tracked back into the school. While rubber mulch costs approximately twice as much as traditional mulch, it lasts considerably longer and is echo friendly.

The “March for Mulch” raised approximately $4,055.11 in pledges and the winning rooms from K through grade 2 and grades 3 through 6 will be treated to a pizza party.

Creating The Perfect Backyard Space


Having a place to that everyone can enjoy and relax is key. Some ideas for the perfect backyard area can include a garden, a comfortable seating area, a play area, landscaping, and so much more.

– If you have children look for their input on what they would use. A tree house and swing set are perfect accompaniments to the perfect back yard, make sure to have plenty of rubber mulch at the base for safety.

– Having some type of garden is also a great idea – gardens bring life and joy to your backyard. A garden can include  trees, lilies, bushes, and different types of flowers. Gardens do require a bit of maintenance. Using rubber mulch around shrubs and plants and sectioning off with CRW’s curbendable rubber border system can help to curtail the amount of maintenance by cutting down on weed growth and keeping your beautiful landscaping in tact by avoiding washouts.

– And last but not least, having a comfortable deck or back patio is essential for relaxing on and key for creating ideas for your next new space!

Now its time to decorate, good luck and enjoy!
