I really don't know. A neighbor does folk's lawns and he brought it for us. He called it "tumble safe". And explained how it was handled. I didn't see any literature or anything about it. All the pieces are about the size of a French fry (only thing I can think of, lol). They have rounded edges and no sharp points where it has been chipped. We have 6 cats, and they do not use it as a litter box. However, it gets packed down with wetness and our playset is under trees. So, they never are dried out by the sun. They are not muddy, but are packed down, not loose. No fun like the pea gravel.

Thank you also for making pea gravel sound so fun. I did not know about the absorption of negative energy, that's definitely a plus.
I really like the pea gravel.

It's looking more and more likely that I will use pea gravel, but the tumble safe sounds like a good alternative.

And you never have to replace the pea gravel. The mulch must be topped up. And the pea gravel drains and dries quickly. You can blow with a leaf blower to clear off leaves. I suppose some folks might be concerned about the small stones with toddlers. But, we've never had any issues about it.

And it is just so much fun!
