INSTALLATION – BASE PREPARATION

2.0 Rub R Mulch can be installed on compacted soil, compacted granular base, asphalt or concrete surfaces.
2.1 When using a granular base, a minimum of 25mm to 100mm depth is required, compacted to a 95% proctor density. A water percolation rate of 60 liters/M2/hour. Should the rate be less, a French drain must be installed to provide adequate water flow.
2.2 A geotextile between the base material and Rub R Mulch is recommended.
2.3 Granular, soil, asphalt or concrete surfaces require a slope of no less than 2% to drain, acknowledging that Rub R Mulch is a water permeable surface.
2.4 Base can be sloped up to 30 degrees within the installation area.
2.5 Installation around all plants, trees and shrubs requires a 6" spacing to allow for sufficient plant growth.
2.6 Concrete, granular or wood borders are recommended. Rub R Mulch without a border can be finished by creating a 2" trench around the perimeter.

THICKNESS

3.0 Thickness of Rub R Mulch will be 1.5" (40mm) and applied consistently throughout installation.

3.1 Polyurethane binder shall be mixed throughout the entire thickness.
3.2 Bevel is installed at the perimeter of the installation running from the thickness of the surface down to the base. The outside line of the bevel must be clear and follow the designed edge of the installation.
