On a playground, countless children come down slides, swing across monkey bars, jump down from steps, run around the equipment, and chase each. That’s exactly what they’re supposed to do! With that in mind, you want to make sure these active youngsters have a safe place to land.

My job includes working with many varied vendors. I will gladly state that Kelly Hall and Forrest Commodities have never let me down! From the quick responses to the final delivery I never have to worry regarding the safety surfacing arriving in a timely and professional manner.
Kelly goes the extra mile every time. The customer service I receive from him is exemplary. I look forward to working with him worry free until the day I retire!

* What is a cubic yard?
A cubic yard measures 3 ft. x 3 ft. x 3 ft. A cubic yard of mulch will cover a 10 ft. x 10 ft. area, 3 in. deep. (3 in. is the recommended depth for spreading mulch.) So a good rule of thumb is to calculate the square footage of the area to be covered with mulch and divide by 100. For example, imagine you have a front porch with a flower bed on each side. Each side measures 15 ft. x 10 ft. (150 sq. ft.). The total area to be covered is 150 + 150 = 300 sq. ft. To calculate the number of yards of mulch required, divide that by 100. So you need 3 yards of mulch.
