WaterWise™ Details
Color Wise LogoEverlast Landscape Rubber Mulch is completely water permeable. Wood mulches mat and degrade over time, shedding water away from your plants. Remember that the only thing you find at the bottom of a pile of wood mulch is a coupon to come back for more! All irrigation and rain flow straight through to your plants. Everlast Rubber Mulch is an insulator keeping soil temperatures cool helping to retain moisture where plants need it most.
WeedWise™ Details
Color Wise LogoRubber Mulch naturally provides a 95% reduction in weed growth. Weed seed needs water to germinate. Everlast is designed to capture weed seed and hold it in the mulch. Everlast is completely permeable so the mulch itself doesn’t hold water dehydrating weed seed. Everlast Rubber Mulch doesn’t degrade so bare spots which allow light to the soil are no longer present. Everlast Rubber Mulch is a natural weed block and we do not recommend “weed fabric” underneath as it is unnecessary and may contribute to future weed growth by holding moisture and wind blown debris at the surface.

MEASURING FOR RUBBER MULCH IN 3 EASY STEPS


You can measure square footage of a landscape bed or playground with scalloped or curved borders by creating geometrical shapes.



Step 1: Break up the area into separate zones.

You will never be able to calculate square feet precisely with scalloped or curved edges; however you can get very close. Always round up to insure you can cover an uneven grade. Remember that mature plant material can be accounted for using a percentage.

Example: I have 1000 square feet of landscaping but my plants cover 10%. Therefore, I only need 900 square feet of mulch.

Step 2: Mentally adjust the borders.

Curved beds can be divided into zones; whether they be circular or rectangular.

Here we are going to "cut off" an outlying area and use it to fill in an open area helping us to create geometric shapes.

Step 3: Move the cut off piece to fill an empty space.

Simply take the cut away area and overlay it onto an open area. The goal is to get close and to round up.
