Pour Your Own Rubber Mulch Mat for a Residence differs from that for a Commercial Job mainly from the size of the job.

A residential job could be as little as 35 sq ft or as big as 1000 sq ft. For the smaller sizes you will probably use a wheel barrow to mix the contents. If your requirement gets to the higher end of this range you may need to hire out a mixer from a rental store. We think of the residential client’s yard as three separate areas: The front yard, back, and sides of the yard.

Front Yard: Pour in Place can provide a permanent solution for your front hedges. We’ve had customers that have used it under their azalea bushes and flower beds. Some just have big bushes of greenery that are hard to get under when cutting the grass or even some bushes that are thorny that you do not want to keep disturbing when doing regular lawn maintenance.

Backyard: Of course the possibilities are endless. We can help with a small play area for your kids or it is great for poor drainage areas. Uneven land in an uneven spot that just needs to be covered like in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nit1AkAV4Gk

Side of the House/ Yard Area: Decoration of the side of the yard has started to become a trend in the US when adding onto the garden. Adding greenery or decorative bulbs, glass, angels, or garden gnomes; it’s a trendy thing to deck out the side of your house. Make the up keep of the area easy by using this Pour in Place solution and shape it best way you see fit!


To use the old Rocket Science maxim pouring rubber it is not but it does take some getting used to and most folks that don’t have success move to fast and don’t learn a process that works. We have a few videos and how to steps to follow that seem to work for most

Pour in place recycled rubber mulch puts you in charge because it gives you so many options. You can use these for the front area of your home where there are some hard to re-mulch areas under low to the ground bushes. You can even add a side lawn edition for the sides of your home leading to the backyard. No need to keep fighting the bushes to re-mulch or not mulch at all due to difficult access.


Here’s how it works–two materials are required: Bags of rubber mulch and a pail of binder. Both are included in this purchase.

For every 5 gallon pail of binder, you require up to four 50lb bags of rubber mulch. This 1 pail/4 bag combination covers about 72 square feet at a 1 to 2 inch depth so is a bit less than $6/sq ft for our highest price

The price we give here is an ESTIMATE ONLY for 72sq ft of finished material to be used to make tree rings, rectangular mats, or as pictured above a custom pour that fits any given situation. That would be the minimum quantity you can purchase. Naturally the more you purchase the better the price. We will gladly quote your job for you-just email or
call us with the suggested size of your job. Can you please include a few low resolution pics of the potential jobsite please.


Mechanics at Point of Install
Now of course the labor cost for application at the point of install would be up to you for mixing the batch and laying the finished product. If your project is in Florida or Georgia we can often come do the install for you. Call us to discuss please.

You’d better allow at least half a day for making mats for 5 trees since there is some curing time involved.

This concept is great for irregular size/shape projects like unique sized mulch mats, playground rubber mulch, situations where bulk mulch is necessary, and bike/trail paths, amongst many others. We’d be glad to  help you decide how much of this product is right for you!

Some other uses we’ve found for the pour-in-place surfacing include rubber trails and surfaces, running trails or running tracks, pour-in-place safety surfacing, walkways, and really anything else you can come up with.

All of the recycled rubber products you find on Conserv-A-Store, including the pour-and-place material you’re looking at on this page are made from colored recycled rubber produced from recycled waste stream rubber and other waste rubber that would otherwise populate local landfills all over the country. Greet for making rubber floors.

Depending on your job the following popular colors are available: Rainbow, Rustic, Jungle, Black, and Brown (bark).



-restructure the 1st page a bit to speak of the 3 main areas of the yard…just say there are 3 main areas of a yard–front back and side..

The factories we use are in the USA and employ Americans-the rubber comes largely from tires that were used in America-the tires may not have been made in the USA originally

Why is Freight so HIGH??

We are asked can I do this myself? The answer is of course. Have you ever mixed and poured concrete. This is very similar. Yes you will get a bit dirty but everything washes off after your job is complete

If pour in place is not for you we have a good selection of Pre-formed mats and tree rings-Please click here

This is an instructive video on how to do a smaller job. It uses items we do not offer in this kit and is of non USA origin but it is a good guide on these processes. We suggest a wheelbarrow to do your mixing
Pour in Place Mulch for residential use is not as difficult as it sounds. When using our Pour In Place Mulch to create Tree Rings and or Undefined areas the job can be done in a day. The drying time is 24-72 hours depending on heat and humidity but can dry quicker. For larger jobs these directions are similar but you will need a mixer. Here’s what you’ll need and how to do it: Folks it’s just a dirty job so be prepared and you will be happy after. Wear your oldest clothes you were preparing to donate and cover as much of your body that you can. But it’s safe if you are smart
  • 4 Bags of Rubber Mulch with every 1 pal of binder

  • Trowl

  • Landscape fabric

  • Water and Soap

  • Wheel barrow

  • Rake/Hoe/Shovel

  • Scissors

  • Bucket, Duck Tape

  • Plastic tarp or plastic bag big enough to cover wheelbarrow mixing cavity

  • Goggle, mask, gloves up to elbows, clothes that can be thrown away, and apron if preferred.

  1. First clear the landscape to which you want to cover with the mulch. Dig up any loose terrain and weeds. Clear the area with a shovel, hoe, and rake to level the terrain. Make sure to mark the area you want covered so it can be even to your preference.

  2. To prevent weeds and better irrigation, cut and fit to the area landscaping fabric. This is optional but will produce better results.

  3. Line the wheelbarrow with the plastic and tap it down to the outside of the wheelbarrow for easy clean up.

  4. Prepare yourself. Put on gloves, mask, goggles, apron, etc to preference

  5. Pour the first two bags of mulch in the covered wheelbarrow

  6. Pour the binder on top of those two

  7. Pour the remaining two bags of mulch on top of binder

  8. Blend the mulch and binder by hand first and then with tool of choice to evenly coat the mulch with the binder – look for a thick consistency throughout the entire mulch. If you have loose mulch continue to mix.

  9. Once all of the mulch is completely covered, use the wheelbarrow and pour the mulch evenly as possible over the area you cleared. Feel free to use a hoe or rake to maneuver the mulch how you want it to lay.

  10. After you have majority of the mulch in place, form the edges of the area and mulch so you have no empty spaces or gaps and no landscaping fabric is showing.

  11. You can leave the mulch freely to have a more natural look or flatten the rubber mulch to have a cleaner look as desired.

  12. If a more finished look is desired; mix soap and water in a bucket and flatten the surface with the trowel and desired. Dab water onto the trowel and run it across the area to flatten.

  13. Allow 24-72 hours for curing. Once cured maintenance is simple. Mowing and trimming can easily be done closely without disturbing the mulch.

The Conserv-A-Store made by Rubber designs Loose Fill Rubber Mulch is made from recycled tires and is most popular for landscaping options that are made to last for a long time. With adequate care and initial proper installation, this wood mulch alternative requires little to no maintenance for 10 years or more. This raw material originates as 100% recycled commercial waste stream rubber call “buffing.” A buffing sieve is performed prior to the materials being colored and bagged for utmost reliability. We selectively classify our recycled buffing material and sort particle size ranging from 3/8″ to 2″. It is a necessity to have and provide the right combination and sizes so the finished product weaves and knits together by design. The coloring of the rubber material is colored by using our organic powder color coating method that will not delaminate over time. Once the material is colored, it is sealed with our formulated polymer wetting agent, bonding pigments definitively into each other and every particle. You will never see it float away or splinter in your lifetime!

Aren’t You Tired of this Happening! Wood Mulch is temporary where as Pour in Place is permanent!
