1) Sandpit solutions. 

We are the sand experts! We will top up, clean, remove or replace sand in the most efficient means possible. We also create and build innovative sandpits that can be incorporated into your outdoor space. We will inspect your sand space free of charge and will work with you to recommend the suitable solution.

Sandpits provide many hours of fun and natural play for children. The sandpit provides an excellent opportunity for Social, Emotional and Language development. Children improve their communication skills during sand play. It enables them develop their fine and gross motor skills as they dig, build, scoop and carry the sand.

  • Maintaining and topping up the existing sand. Our specialized equipment will sift the sand to remove debris such as broken glass, stones, leaves, bark, animal droppings, and general litter. We can also top up the sand levels for safe play and to minimize tripping hazards.
  • Replacing the existing sand. This is needed when the sand is in poor condition due to improper or overdue maintenance. When sand is contaminated we will dispose of the old contaminated sand, wash and disinfect the sandpit structure, and refill the sandpit with new sand.
  • Renovating the sandpit. This service is recommended when the functionality of the sandpit has been compromised due to excessive water retention, underground drainage issues, ground levelling issues and structural damage.

About Sand Hygiene: It is important to note that unclean sandpits have the potential to cause hazards to children.

Sandpits can become contaminated when animals, particularly cats, and even children use them as toilets. Toxoplasmosis can be spread from animal droppings to humans in unclean sandpits. Children may become infected when putting dirty hands in their mouths. Insects can also live and breed in damp sand and may bite or sting children.

The Microbiological Hygienic Quality of sand is important. In addition to removing hazardous items and leaf litter, regular sifting allows light and oxygen to penetrate the sand. This assists to disinfect and freshen the sand and helps avoid anaerobic conditions (some which can be toxic). As a result of sifting, hardened sand is broken down resulting in softer sand.  A comprehensive Risk Assessment should include a regular, professional maintenance program of all sand areas.

It is very durable and resilient.  It can be installed in awkward areas, customised fun shapes and designs in various colours. We can create challenging features such as hopscotch, animal shapes, and customised bike tracks. There are no sharp edges, shock absorbing assisting to minimise injury from falls and low maintenance.
