playground equipment repairs

playground refurbishment for schools and nurseries

Whether your play equipment's seen better days, your surfacing needs repairs, or you require some landscaping to fix problems with damp or the weather, dbdplay can help.

As a local playground design company, we can also suggest and install any replacements you need, tailored to your goals and budget.

play surface repair

We're a fan of play grass and safety surfacing at dbdplay, but it has a limited lifespan and will require some maintenance now and again. 

If you have a Play Grass surface which has become worn down in places, a MUGA Pitch which has become mossy and slippery, or a Daily Mile Track which needs tightening up with a sand treatment, we can book a visit and quote you for repairs or patching.

All of the equipment, fixings, and surfaces we install come with a guarantee and a maintenance guide, so you know exactly what you're getting from your investment and how to ensure it stays in the best possible working order.

For example, the treated timber used for our play equipment is guaranteed to stay safe and useable for at least 15 years and your can expect our play grass surfacing to last a minimum of 10 years.

adding the wow factor to play areas

Churchstanton Primary School had a trim trail, a safety surface and some playground fencing which had all reached the end of their useable life. They asked us to bring the wow factor back to their playground on a reasonably low budget.

We refreshed the school playground by adding new, challenging trim trail items, using the existing rubber steps and holes from previous equipment. We also replaced the old safety surface with vibrant green and blue play grass.

You can see the full effect in the video below.

Book in a call today for a free initial chat about your playground redesign.

If you're happy to proceed after the call, we can often organise a site visit in as little as 1 week!

what to expect from us

After a quick chat to understand your needs and concerns, dbdplay will arrange a site visit so one of our specialists can take a look at your playground in person.

From there, our team will be able to create a solution and will present a free proposal, complete with a cost breakdown. We can revise this until you're completely happy, and then the operations phase starts.

Once we have all the parts required, our build team will visit your school on a time and schedule which suits you, and carry out the work.

Every member of our installation team is DBS checked and experienced in playground construction.
