Yes! The colorants in colored mulch are safe for people, animals, and the environment. In fact, recent independent laboratory studies looked at colored mulch very closely to determine its toxicity.
In the studies, toxicity is tested using a variety of reaction types — from acute oral, skin, and inhalation toxicity to eye and skin irritation. The results place the colorant used in colored mulch into the lowest and safest level of toxicity possible — Category IV ― the same level as the sugar you put in your coffee (which is not to say we recommend consuming it). By contrast, table salt and baking soda have higher levels of toxicity.
By far, Dark Brown Colored Mulch. It's the classic rich brown color everyone's loved for years! The ultra violet light inhibitors are key in preventing the fade to grey.

Eastern Jungle Gym Swingsets are only made from 100% Cedar from sustainable forests. Cedar is naturally insect and bug resistant and overall a great choice. Our wood is better by leaps and bounds over pressure treated lumber. Why alter the sate of wood and introduce un-needed chemicals? I doesn't make sense to us, and we do not sell it!
We have tiers of installation costs.
Typically we are $199-$499 on most sets for standard installs. 90% Of the time the cost is accurate. There are small charges for angle bases when not on level ground. For safety we may need to install extra supports or anchors. For non level yards we will always recommend a straight base as the sets are specifically designed to allow installation on almost any grade. Please contact us on installation questions.
If you are in our territory and a reasonable distance away, we can dissemble, transport and reassemble at your new address. This fee varies on type of swing set and distance. While pricing is based on hourly wage and transportation, keep in mind that a certified installer knows the ins-and-outs of your set and is always the most efficient worker. We usually will not disassemble a non-EJG swing set but you can email us a picture or give us a call to find out!

75% of the time, no. While we do maintain some a the lightest fleet of specifically designed custom mulch delivery vehicles in the area... WE DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS, nor accept any responsibility for the condition of your yard after we leave. With a maximum weight of 26,000 lbs on a full load, we can get stuck, make depressions/ruts in the lawn, crack edges of improperly constructed driveways and more. Delivery is completely at driver discretion, please have a spot pick out on your driveway. Additionally, we do not accept liability for cracked driveways under load. While the average driveway has no problems, we have no way of knowing the construction of your driveway. If you are concerned consider having us drop at the end of your driveway near the street. Unfortunately this is the the bitter truth to delivering a load of product with an appropriately sized vehicle. We do appreciate your cooperation.
