    I have been asked to place an estimate to replace shredded tire bedding in a playground. If anyone knows any suppliers, tips or tricks I would appreciate any info!
    Thanx!

    Do you mow anywhere in the area that this is going to be placed or are you just putting it down?

    I mowed a day care that had this in the play area, and more in the grass that the little ones threw all over the place. I finally had to let this customer go. They did not want to pay to pick it up, and I did not want to run over the pieces with my mower.

    Fortunately this will be a one shot deal. No mowing at all. Actually I am glad for the same reason stated. Rubber Chips everywhere! I found a supplier In Ohio said $1.70/sq. ft. But still shopping around.
