According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 200,000 children are treated in U.S. hospital emergency rooms each year for injuries associated with playground equipment. Most injuries occur when children fall from the equipment onto the ground.

Why use special playground mulch? Won’t regular mulch work?
No. There is a big difference between mulch used for playgrounds and what is used for landscaping. Consider their purposes: Landscaping mulch is used for weed prevention, moisture retention, and a decorative touch. Playground mulch, however, is manufactured specifically for fall protection. Our Playground Turf™ had to meet rigorous safety requirements in order to be designated a safety-certified playground mulch.
