School Is Out For the Summer, Time to Install Playground Safety Surfaces

Applied Mulch and Soil - Monday, June 05, 2017

Mulch not only provides a beautiful ground surface for homes and businesses but, there’s also mulch that is used for playground safety surfaces!

While many schools still use pea gravel, it doesn’t protect against injury as well as the playground safety surfaces that are installed by the professionals of Applied Mulch & Soil. Playground mulch has a similar look to landscape mulch, but, is specifically designed to buffer falls and decreases the risk of injury. Playground safety surfaces are soft enough to cushion a fall, yet firm enough to run and play on. Not only does it decrease the risk of injuries, but, it also decreases the chance of children swallowing a piece due to its size.

This is only one of the many services we have to offer! With our fleet of Express Blower® trucks, Applied Mulch & Soil is able to quickly and efficiently install your playground safety surface! Our trucks are equipped with state-of-the-art technology which eliminates the need for wheelbarrows. When you’re ready to get started, request a quote, we’ll take it from there!
