shockpad for play surface


The SmartPlay system was primarily created to improve safety when using rubber grass mats for fall height protection. It does this by removing client concerns around using grass mats in varying ground conditions and weathers. However, it also reduces maintenance and improves the look of your area by stopping the mats sinking and encouraging grass growth in action areas.

artificial grass


Artificial grass has a whole host of benefits, however the main reason people choose it is because it looks perfect all year round! In some cases, synthetic grass can last over 10 years before needing replacement – that’s a lot of maintenance, watering and mowing time saved! Our grass is guaranteed to last at least 8 years.
