Do you carry rubber mulch?
No. Rubber mulch is harmful to plants, looks artificial, and is very expensive. Research also shows that small amounts of zinc in the rubber will leach into soil over time. In addition, rubber mulch is not as effective as organic choices for weed control and does decompose. Also, because rubber mulch is not non-toxic, it contains a number of metal and organic contiminants with known environmental and/or human health effects.
