1.     Prepare mulch mat in the size you desire.

2.     Measure area of installation to make sure that the product is at a safe distance from the business/ playground/home. Not leaving enough space may cause a blockage between the ground and building, resulting in the growth of fungus.

3.     Mark the areas of where the edge (or curve) of the rubber mat borders will be

4.     Lay out rubber mat and measure make sure the mat is the size you require/covers desired area of ground
a.     *If you are placing the mat on a playground, be sure the mat is under every piece of structure (swings, merry-go round, slides etc.)

5.     Once the area is measured, graze the dirt from area measured with mat. There should be no soil/sod where the mat will lay. This should leave a grass-less area in the size of the mulch mat. It should be leveled.

6.     Lay the mat and enjoy!
