How to Use Mulch Mats of Recycled Tires
Mulch Mats of Recycled Tires are a Win Win
The 3ft x 20 ft mat can also be used as a pathway in your yard instead of step stones or rocks. You may need to secure the mat to the ground with landscape spikes. If there is a portion of your yard that gets poor drainage or sunlight, the 4ft x 4ft rectangular mulch mat is a perfect ground cover.
For companies looking to add mulch to their area consider that these mats can save you money versus regular loose mulch since it is an install it and forget it solution rather than requiring ongoing maintenance that accompanies loose mulch. Also these mats will not wash away in the rain. The mulch mat can be used as a walkway in certain moderate pedestrian traffic areas as well.
If you have a retention pond application where grass will not grow on the banks of the pond and you also experience erosion into the pond, then the rectangular mats, if secured well to the bank with landscape spikes, will solve the problem. Soil and water conservation districts have used the mats successfully for this situation.
