    English is not my native language, so when I firstly saw this title, my first thought was like- “Who is this Rubber Mulch, I’ve never heard about him..” :D

    Anyway- rubber mulch seems like good option to me, because it’s not so dusty and messy as classic sand. Thank you Ross!

    Those white navy bags, where can I buy them used or they are only offered new?

    Excellent article Ross, the rubber mulch is a far better and easier alternative than sand for big bags. Also I remember a vid from a guy that used old clothes, bed sheets, curtains, etc. to fill a big bag, he packed them very tight to fill as much as possible plus added a weight plate in the middle between the clothes to increase the weight a little more. He mentioned the bag was easier to carry and obviously easier to construct and modify later than a sand filled bag.

    Thank you Ross, I was looking for a filler that I would not have to use filler bags for, this looks like the one.

    One thing to watch out for when using rubber mulch is little bits of steel wire which may come through your bag-had that happen a couple of times now

    Hey Ross,
    How about kitten litter?
