I install one job several years ago. If it rained hard, the rubber mulch would float into the driveway/ turf. Can't rake shrub clippings. Smells like tires for several months especially in the summer heat.
Only pro is that it kept color for a year.

I like Bois D' Arc mulch or a native cedar.

Rubber Mulch should not float out or wash out worse than wood mulch but I would not recommend it personally except on a large commercial site out somewhere in an open flat area.

Haha As much as i HATE it. I got a call Friday from a customer who wanted 190 tons of this rubber mulch put around his $75,000 dollars worth of playground.... we did that yesterday. Thankfully he had wooden retaining walls around the whole thing.

This is the only place i feel it okay to put it down...
