Tire Recycling Through Gardening
Most contemporary green homes or eco-conscious gardeners use recycled rubber mulch. There are many benefits to using this form of mulch. One of the biggest returns is reducing the millions of abandoned rubber tires accumulating in landfills across the country. Old defective tires, when thrown away, can sit polluting our land for thousands of years without decomposing. Some dumps that have an overwhelming amount of rubber tires have the potential to cause a fire. These types of fires can last for months, similar to wild fires, but more toxic. The burning rubber releases a thick dark smoke filled with poisonous chemicals polluting the air for miles. Using mulch made out of shredded up tires can help stop unnecessary landfill waste.

Secret of Contemporary Green Homes
Recycled rubber mulch also has several gardening advantages as well. The heavy ample material effectively blocks sunlight, preventing the growth of troublesome weeds in garden beds. Since it is not edible it repels the majority of insects. The layering of rubber aids in the protection of soil during rainy periods and other harsh weather elements. Gardeners can purchase recycled rubber mulch in a large assortment of colors, adding additional beauty to any landscaping project. Vivid bright colors in purple, pink, green, yellow, orange, royal blue, brown, terracotta, black and red rubber mulch are available to choose from. Unlike traditional mulch varieties such as wood chips, gravel, and other organic mixtures, rubber mulch is low maintenance. There is no need to replace it, making this method very cost effective.
