Rubber Chips and Shredded Rubber Mulch

We recommend and use NuPlay and Rubberific Mulch from the International Mulch Company.

NuPlay Rubber Chips

Rubberific Shredded Rubber Mulch

NuPlay is a durable groundcover made of 100 % recycled rubber.

Rubberific Mulch is a realistically textured rubber mulch, also made of 100 % recycled rubber, that looks virtually identical to wood mulch.


  • Moderate initial cost (shredded mulch is more expensive than chunks)
  • Considered handicap accessible once compacted
  • Subbase preparation required, but not critical
  • Material is inorganic so it does not rot, decay, or breakdown over time
  • Requires minimum replacement over the life of the product
  • Available in a variety of colors
  • Easy installation, can be done by volunteers


  • 4-6 times more expensive than engineered wood fiber
  • Considered loose fill; must be raked back into position at high wear areas

Critical Fall Height

  • NuPlay – 6" inch thick layer rated for a 13 foot fall height
  • Rubberific Mulch – 6" inch thick layer rated for a 12 foot fall height
