Regarding this, is rubber mulch worth the cost?
One negative is its price; it's quite a bit more expensive than other mulch products. But because it lasts significantly longer, you may actually see cost-saving benefits over the long haul. Rubber mulch also does not provide the nutrients or organic matter to soil that wood does when it decomposes.
One may also ask, how do you calculate rubber mulch? Find the depth you want and divide your square footage by the square footage listed. For instance, if you want to cover 500 square feet with rubber mulch 3.0 inches deep, take 500÷287=1.75 (rounded up to 2 pallets). Or you can use our rubber mulch calculator.
Keeping this in consideration, how many square feet does a bag of rubber mulch cover?
Rubber Mulch bags equals 72.5 to 75 cubic feet (about 2.7 cubic yards) of material and weighs approximately 2000 lbs. Each pallet will cover approximately 300 sq ft by 3 inches deep, rated for a 5 ft fall height; or 150 sq ft by 6 inches deep tested for a 12 ft fall height. How much Rubber Mulch do you need?
What is the average price to install mulch?
Most spend between $210 and $400 per yard, with installation, and the average price is $325. Those who choose to install mulch themselves spend just $60 to $100 per yard.
