When it comes to children’s safety, we will not take risks. Playground surfacing material is an integral part of a playground and often times playgrounds are lacking the adequate Fall zone depth and Use Zone area. The Fall Zone, depending on the equipment height should have a depth of 9” to 12” of playground surfacing material; and the Use Zone (area under and around play equipment) should extend out a minimum of 6 feet in all directions. To ensure your playground meets all safety requirements, Advanced Mulch will only install ASTM certified mulch on playgrounds and our experienced staff will advise you if any concerns are noticed regarding the Fall & Use Zones when estimating your playground.
