We had problems with a grassed area under a large established tree on one of our playgrounds. The site slopes and the surface would run off, washing away what little grass there was, and moving mud down onto the soft play area and playground below. We thought our only option would be to terrace the area before resurfacing, which was potentially expensive and might have presented us with other safety considerations. However, when we looked into it, we were advised that SowGreen® could be laid securely on the slope, allowing rainwater to drain steadily through the surface. The installation took less than a week over half-term, and the transformation was amazing. The children play safely on the area at all times of the year and they love it. We are so pleased with the results that we have recently had a second area completed.
