Synthetic Surfaces


Play Areas
Safe, inspiring playgrounds to spark the imagination of children of all ages.

Working in partnership with schools and local authorities, our team at Wessex Grounds Services have designed, installed and maintained some of the most innovative play areas in Dorset. In collaboration with teachers and play workers we can build spaces which bring learning outside, creating shaded teaching areas and outdoor class rooms.

Synthetic Sports Carpets
We install and maintain a variety of synthetic sports carpets and are delighted to work in partnership with NottsSport synthetic surfacing as an approved installer for their products. Like all companies authorised to supply and install the popular ChildsPlay system, employees from Wessex Grounds Services have received expert installation training from Notts Sport.

Designed to go under and around play equipment and for free play and recreation areas, the ChildsPlay surfacing material has certified shock absorbing qualities that will cater for critical fall heights of up to three metres and is available in a palette of eye-catching muted or dynamic colours. The system features outstanding performance characteristics including durability, vandal resistance, drainage and overall cost-effectiveness.

Synthetic Sports Pitch Maintenance
It is not widely understood that good quality, ongoing maintenance, of synthetic sports pitches can significantly improve the life expectancy of a synthetic carpet.  Synthetic carpets are low maintenance rather than no maintenance and the rule of thumb is one hour of maintenance per ten hours of play.
