It’s not surprising that you’ve likely never thought about the mulch around the playgrounds you’ve visited. People come to playgrounds to play, not to noticed the landscaping. However, playground mulch does a lot more than just make it look nice. Yes, it makes the appearance of the area look uniform and clean, but the real purpose behind mulching playgrounds is the safety factor. Though we children to have fun when at the playground, we also want to know they’re safe in the event of an accident. No child or parent should have to be worried in this kind of environment, but unfortunately, serious and sometimes fatal accidents happen at playgrounds every day.

There’s a variety of equipment high above the ground at most playground facilities that leave children vulnerable to falling, as well as slides, swings, climbing walls, and other equipment that put children at risk for falling. Proper mulching ensures there’s a soft pad to absorb the impact so the child doesn’t land on a hard surface. In addition to falling, children also run the risk of slipping while running, so mulch provides friction to help reduce slippage. With how crowded playgrounds can get, taking every safety precaution possible sets children up for fun rather than danger that could have been avoided.
