Product Highlight: NuPlay® Mulch

The Allied Department at our Grayson Location is excited to carry NuPlay® Mulch, a high quality playground mulch made from 100% recycled, non-toxic, environmentally friendly rubber products. It exceeds standards set by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission for playground mulch.

Unlike other rubber mulches, NuPlay® will not float when heavy rains move through. It stays put and doesn’t attract ants, termites, or other pests. It inhibits mold and fungi, limiting allergy risks. It’s also 99.9% wire-free and doesn’t create dust, so your children stay safe and clean!

NuPlay Mulch

We carry the NuPlay® Mulch in Earthtone in 1.5 cubic foot bags.
