    I have a customer who wants to do a portion of her beds with rubber mulch. I have searched and found out alot, but need to know if anyone knows a place to buy it in Michigan. They sell 16 pound bags at Lowes and some other box stores here, is that the only way I can buy it? Anyone know of a bigger dealer in Michigan?

    Try to edge the bed with rubber mulch and it goes everywere. It doesnt decompose so the soil doesnt benefit from it. I have a customer that installed it about 2 years ago and after about 3 months it looked terrible, dirt showing through etc. it didnt seem to last long.
