What Is Engineered Wood Fiber Playground Mulch?

Engineered wood fiber is a type of mulch that is made of processed wood that is ground to a fibrous consistency and is free of contaminants. It is a type of loose-fill material that doesn’t produce sharp chunks, bark, or splinters like other types of mulch. It also doesn’t absorb and hold heat like rubber mulch, which can also contain toxic chemicals that are unsafe for children.

The Benefits of Engineered Wood Fiber for Playgrounds

  • Accessibility: One of the biggest benefits of EWF for playgrounds is that it meets the standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) because it allows people with wheelchairs or crutches to safely move over them.
  • Affordability: EWF playground mulch is less expensive than other types of park and playground surfacing, such as rubber and synthetic turf.
  • Safety: Engineered wood fiber is much safer than hard surfaces like asphalt. As long as it meets depth requirements, it is safe for children to play on slides, monkey bars, and other playground equipment.

Appeal: EWF playground mulch provides a natural, organic look to your park or playground.
