In January 2015 Chestnuts Road Pre-School in Wokingham approached Sportsafe enquiring about the resurfacing of their outdoor play area. The existing tarmac area had signs of severe weathering and suffered from tree roots causing the tarmac to lift and crack creating trip hazards.



We recommended extensive ground works to remove the tree roots and the installation of a layer of sharp stone sub-base to prevent the problem reoccurring and to allow fast drainage.  To surface this area we recommended premium quality artificial grass as this is a more cost effective and aesthetically appealing than wet pour rubber.

After a short consultation period Chestnuts Road, our team arranged the installation to take place over half term to minimise the disruption to the students and ensure site safety.  As planned, the install was completed in five days.

The new synthetic grass surface not only looks great but has a 20 year life cycle which is much longer than many surfacing alternatives. The grass is soft to touch, realistic and provides a safe surface for children to play on and the school were delighted with the installation.



Sportsafe can offer a wide range of synthetic surfacing options including, artificial grass, wet pour rubber, astro turf and much more.  If you would like more information about Sportsafe’s artificial surfacing please contact our sales team today on 0844 581 0550 or email [email protected].
