We also use gravel which comes in a range of sizes and colours including buff and a pink and brown effect. This can be used for pathways, weed suppressant or for water play and natural areas.
Larger pebbles and boulders are used for sand play, water play and imaginative play areas. They can also be used for climbing on or running around, or just to create different environments.
We have play grade silica sand that we use in all of our sandpits, and is also useful for play areas and water play zones. It’s clean, safe and offers hours of enjoyment.
