Saw this when i was in Boston, Lincs, Homebase, yesterday. You have the choice of 2 different colours Brown and Green. Had a look on their website and looks like it is instore only (although link is to 5kg bag, the actual bags on sale were the 10kg bag).

We bought 10 x 10kg bags for £30!!

Perfect for use in children's play areas.

Easy to lay, and environmentally friendly.

Helps to curb weeds, mould and fungus.

Wire free, and non-toxic.

Moisture resistant, which means play areas can be used more quickly after rain.

Colour safe with a 10 year guarantee against colour loss.

Safe if ingested.

Thanks to OP for the find!

In Staines Homebase "10 kilo" bags, branded EcoScape were on sale for £5 each (reduced from £14.99) with no mention of a multi-buy. Only brown version in stock.

Asked with Customer Service who checked on their system and could see no special promotions / multibuys and stated there weren't any.

Took a flyer, loaded trolley with 15 bags and it went though the till at £45 once totalled on the till. Seems any quantity over 5 bags reduces the price to £3/bag, so no need to buy multiples of 5.

Anyway area under trampoline is now covered in brown rubber mulch which replaces the bark chipping and should hopefully stop the local cats using it as a toilet. Also nice and soft under feet so the kids love it!

Rubber; the best kind of mulch.

Excellent deal! Will have to see if either homebase local to me has them in stock! Will be very handy on the play area we are making in the garden!

FWIW most stores round me have loads of stock of the brown version, green is harder to find.

You can check stock levels and stores on the Homebase website now - which saves a wasted trip.

Bought 25 bags yesterday to lay in the garden and to put some in storage.

Altough in Slough the price showed £9.98 on the pack still in rang in the till as £5 a pack then applied the discount at the end to make it £3 a pack!

Really nice find, the garden is looking so much nicer :)

I am lost as to how it can be described as 'environmentally friendly'.

An amazing deal... just bought 30 bags for £90 from livingston branch. This waorks out about the same price as regular bark and Ill not need to replace it for ages. WELL SPOTED :thumbsup:

Thanks OP. Crawley branch have 2 pallets of green marked up at £10 a bag, but goes through at £3 when bought in bulk. Absolutely no mention anywhere of the promo though. HUKD does it again.:thumbsup:

Aintree Homebase appears only to have the green variant. They have it marked as £5 per bag and also labelled for £15 for 5 bags.
We got 7 bags for £21 - so the £3 per bag for 5+ purchases seemed to work for us.

They had approx 50 in front of the store and another 100 or so in the garden area.

We also got so weed reducing fabric to go underneath and the lad there whizzed off about 20m - we only asked 5m! He said better to have too much! Oh yeah!

Amazing deal. Got 15 bags in car and will be going back for some more shortly:)

Managed to track down the green which is a really dark greeny blue

This is the stuff

I would say the green we got is a cross between the blue and green which is just what we wanted.

Thanks OP:thumbsup:

Give it a bit of colour and charge punters £15 (RRP) a bag!!!

I don't see the difference between dumping the recycled rubber into a landfill site and dumping it onto an open ground site (i.e. one's garden)! Sounds total PR to me - there is nothing environmentally friendly about it at all when you look at the chain involved in the 'recycling' process.

Waste rubber carried to central depot (fuel used)
Sorted and carried to shredding plant (fuel used)
Shredded (energy consuming process)
Bagged (energy consuming process)
Carried to distribution depot (fuel used)
Carried to retailers (fuel used)
Punters carry product to their homes (fuel used).

The above as you will see is a very energy consuming process this is without the manufacture/delivery of the bags and the printing process etc. etc. etc.

It's amazing how 'manufacturers' sell products on the back of them being 'environmentally friendly' :-)

anyway...moving on from whether it saves the planet or not.

I got 27 bags of the brown today, had 2 x £10 vouchers from the shed misprice fiasco.

Till said £81 minus £20 vouchers and then the old girl on the till produced a "save £10 when you spend £50" voucher :thumbsup: and I paid £51 for 27 bags, works out at £1.88 a bag! not bad as originally £14 odd!

They also had black in stock but not sure if reduced like the green and brown
