Playground Refurbishment

Give your play area a new lease of life with our playground refurbishment  / makeover service.

Councils & Communities

Playgrounds can start to look a bit tired after a few years of heavy use. Graffiti and vandalism can leave equipment unattractive and un-useable.

Our Makeover service includes a full Playground Audit, identifying

  • essential repairs to get equipment in full working order
  • the range of activities and abilities catered for in the playground and how to extend these
  • best value restoration and refurbishment options for equipment and surfacing
  • good value solutions to add colour, fun and vibrancy to the playground
  • a range of options to suit your budget

Replace damaged and worn panels, paint equipment and clean surfaces to get a “new” playground for a fraction of the price.

We will be doing the make-over for the lucky winner who will be announced on 4th July. In the last two weeks we’ve been out and about looking at the 10 playgrounds (a few more to go), to see what the Makeover would involve. So far we’re planning to renovate play equipment, clean surfacing, remove grafitti, add new fun and colourful play items. For inspiration see our Playground Makeover Album at

Schools & Childcare Facilities

A concrete yard doesn’t inspire children at play time.  But transformimg that dull space into a vibrant, fun filled play area needn’t cost a fortune. Adding Play Tiles, educational panels and surface thermoplastic games at low cost can make a huge difference on a small budget.

Playtime is all about games so why add fun activities to your outside area with Play Tiles (see photo) or thermoplastics, freestanding or wall mounted play panels. Add learning with dfferent languages, maps, numbers, letters and co-ordination games.

Our PlayClean process restores the colours and safety properties of wetpour, tiles and tarmac surfaces, using a deep clean system that kills moss, mould and algae and removes dirt, grime and even chewing gum. If you're looking for the peace of mind that comes from knowing your play area is a clean and pleasant environment where children can play safely, call us today for a demonstration of how we can bring your playground surfacing back to life!
