Top 5 Rubber Mulch Facts




  1. Everlast Rubber Mulch does not float.  Our tire rubber mulch has a specific gravity greater than 1 so it is heavier than water!
  2. Everlast Rubber Mulch weighs approximately 26 pounds per cubic foot.  Our “value sized” bags of rubber mulch at 1.15 cubic feet weigh approximately 30 lbs. vs a .8 cubic foot bag (30% smaller) weighing less.
  3. 23 bags of Everlast make 1 cubic yard vs 34 bags of .8 cubic foot bags equal a cubic yard (27 cubic feet).
  4. Everlast holds water.  Let’s say a pile of rubber mulch gets wet via a heavy rain. The rubber in the middle of the pile will be wet no matter how much time goes by or sun shines on it.  The water is trapped due to condensation.  Rubber mulch has a high R value and the center of the pile stays too cool to evaporate-too cool!
  5. Everlast rubber mulch nugget pieces do not hold water individually.  Therefore the top layer of the mulch stays dry and acts as a weed barrier.  Weed seed that falls into the bed simply dehydrates before germinating.  With Everlast you can save your money and not buy weed block.
