Spring Time, Poured In Place, Rubber Surfaced Backyard Patio!

Rubber surfacing for a backyard patio can be a great option for several reasons. It provides a comfortable and safe surface for walking and playing, it’s durable, low-maintenance, and environmentally friendly. Here are some steps to consider when installing rubber surfacing for your backyard patio:

  1. Preparation: Prepare the area by removing any existing surface material such as grass, weeds or sludge. Ensure the surface is clean and ready for installation.
  2. Edging: Ensure that grass, stones or mulch is all edged back from the perimeter edge.
  3. Rubber Surface Material: We can install Canadian recycled rubber, EPDM virgin rubber or a combination of both. Choose the option that best fits your budget, aesthetic preferences, and the intended use of the patio.
  4. Installation:
    • For poured-in-place rubber, we mix the rubber granules with a binding agent according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Pour the mixture onto the prepared surface and spread it evenly with a trowel. Allow it to cure according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
  1. Sealing (Optional): Depending on the type of rubber surfacing material you choose, you may need to apply a sealant to protect the surface and enhance its longevity.
  2. Maintenance: Rubber surfacing is generally low-maintenance, but regular cleaning may be necessary to remove debris and maintain its appearance. Use a mild detergent and water to clean the surface periodically.
  3. Safety: Ensure that the rubber surfacing material you choose meets safety standards for slip resistance and impact absorption, especially if the patio will be used by children or elderly individuals.
  4. Accessibility: Consider incorporating ramps or slopes into the design to ensure accessibility for individuals with mobility impairments.
  5. Landscaping: Once the rubber surfacing is installed, you can add landscaping elements such as plants, trees, and outdoor furniture to enhance the aesthetics of your backyard patio.

By following these steps, you can create a comfortable, safe, and attractive outdoor space with rubber surfacing for your backyard patio.
