Decided not to use recycled rubber mulch under the play structure. At first glance, it seemed like pretty neat stuff… comes in fun colors and is nice and spongy… but guess what it smells like? Tires! Duh…

Imagine how it smells on a hot day! No way. Also, a little online sleuthing dug up the fact that rubber mulch is toxic to plants, which will be nearby, gets hot enough for there to have been a lawsuit in which a child was burned, and the fumes aren’t so healthy either. Back to good old playground bark.

I picked a color for the concrete mow strip: Flagstone brown! The mow strip will be poured or, rather, extruded on Monday.
