I used it for the first time this season. I put down about 20 yards of it on a playground. Even though kids shouldnt be running through the flower beds, the playground owner wanted it put down jus in case some one fell in the beds.

That's stuff is expensive right? I only see it used for playgrounds.


I think its great in playground area, it really smells for about a year though. I have heard of poeple using it in all there beds and I would never do it, not only would it be bad for plants but when debris got in it, it would be very hard to clean and keep fresh looking.

i just cant get over the fact that you cant throw a tire in the woods to get rid of it, but its ok to grind it up and put it in your flower beds! i would never ever use it. lets just turn our client beds or home into a landfill... just my 2 cents...
