Originally founded as a landscape nursery in 1972 we began distributing rubber mulch in the 1990's.
Central Florida is prone to torrential rains, high winds, and the occasional hurricane. We service customers in Tampa, St. Petersburg, Sarasota, Ft. Myers, Miami, Coral Gables, Cape Canaveral, Jacksonville, and many more. We have served thousands of wholesale rubber mulch accounts over the years. Our nursery design and garden center found that wood mulches were apt to blow or wash away, as were rubber shred mulch, and they did a terrible long term job of controlling weeds. We first tried rubber as a mulch in a notoriously weed infested landscape bed which required two to four hours of work after every rain. The results were immediate and pleasing. We began searching for suppliers for our nursery. We were unable to find enough quality product to service our needs. Many suppliers were simply coating rubber with house paint and laying it out on their shop floors to dry (many still do this today). After numerous complaints of kids turning blue, green, red, etc., we realized that we needed to develop a state of the art processing method and colorants.
We utilized a NASA outreach program (SATOP) for small business to learn about the surface chemistry of tire rubber and developed a colorant with our supplier to provide long lasting service to our customers.
We have supplied landscape rubber mulch and playground rubber mulch to facilities all over the world including Japan, Dubai, Columbia, the Island chains, and many others. We have supplied some of the most prestigious facilities in the world including ports, tourist attractions, casinos, amusement parks, marinas, military installations, and professional sports facilities.
Of course we still run our nursery in Central Florida and enjoy supplying home owners, facility managers, and commercial properties with bags to truckloads of our products. If you are ever in Central Florida stop by and say hi -- maybe take a palm tree home with you!
