      Comments about ACE HARDWARE Rubberific® Rubber Mulch (RM16ET):

      Looks more natural than the rubber nuggets, but you need a little more for good coverage. There is a little rubber smell, but that goes away in a few days. It did not wash away in recent rain. I really wish the stores would carry this in stock instead of the nuggets so I wouldn't need to special order it.

      Rubberific earth tone rubber mulch

          Comments about ACE HARDWARE Rubberific® Rubber Mulch (RM16ET):

          Not a fan of wood mulch. It attracts insects and molds up underneath. Got 10 bags to do my front walk way to the front door. Only use 6 1/2 bags for the project. This stuff looks like the real thing. Its been a little over 2 weeks now and it has rained many times here. So it held up good and did not wash away. On a hot day being in the 90's here in Florida i still can smell a hint of rubber in the air. Not like it was when i first laid it down. Does not bother me and i assume it will eventually get weaker as time goes by. My flowers are doing good in it and i have not seen any ants roaming. The front was a trial test and all is gone good so far. I plan on completing the rest of the front and side of the house with this product.
          It is pricy compared to wood mulch.
          All the reviews about coverage not being correct are right.
          So plan on getting more then you think you need. I just sprinkled it over the weed barrier and did not use that one to two inch rule. Got more coverage with that way. I would recommend a weed barrier. Pro's....looks like the real thing, does not wash away, insect free. Cons.....pricy. I did buy one bag of the rubber nuggets from another store before i got this product. The nuggets were a joke. Looked like chopped up rubber pieces with strings on every other piece. This product from Ace looks more like the real deal. Got 3 bad pieces out of 6 ish bags. I thought earth tone color was brown but has more like a ruby red hint color to it. Overall....am happy. I recommend this product.

          Comments about ACE HARDWARE Rubberific® Rubber Mulch (RM16ET):

          The good news: This rubberized mulch is very attractive; it really just looks like regular woodend mulch. I'm not a fan of very brightly dyed mulch, so I picked the earth color and it's very nice. Plus, the lighter weight makes it easy to carry bags to where they are needed, spread out, etc. It's less messy than regular mulch, and of course I don't have to worry about ants infesting it or it turning into dirt in a year or so. That's the good news.

          The bad news: Each bag gives MUCH less coverage than what the description says. Based on the calculation given, I purchased 10 bags, and expected to have several left over to use elsewhere. Not only did I use those 10 bags, but I ended up buying 25 more (a total of 35 bags!) to cover the area. I don't know how they calculated the coverage they give, but it's not even close. Either plan to order at least 3-4 times what you think you need, or - if budget is an issue - don't use this product.

            We used this mulch under our daughters swing set. I love the color, look, and durability of this stuff. It also gives a little cush for falls. However, the rubber does get very hot in the sun. Also in each bag we bought (41 bags total) there were plastic pieces such as bread tags, twisty ties and plastic bar codes that were not turned into mulch. We also found several long pieces of tires. We would still buy this product again even though we had to buy more than what bag suggested. Totally worth the price!

              Stays dark brown. Others I have used bleach out from the sun. Soft on the hands and on the ground. The only not so great thing to mention is that my local stores do not carry dark brown, so I have to order it and wait for it to come into the store!

                We have used natural mulch for years that blows away in the South Texas "breeze" and is easily washed away during a rain storm. We tried our the rubber mulch in a single bed first and loved the look of the product so we expanded to the entire front yard beds. After the first few months when it hadn't blown away (as promised) or washed away (we've had several inches in just a hour or two on several occasions) we bought more to do the backyard beds too. For South Texas this product is a lifesaver, but I would recommend it for anywhere!

                      This is a great mulch, we used it for my childrens play area outside. It is soft and does not heat up in the sun. The only con is it did not seem to go as far as the bag said it ould and we ended up using twice as much as we thought. But it was worth the extra money!
