Installation guide

Installation of Terrasofta chippings is very easy. We would suggest to install the chippings same way as you would install ordinary wood bark

1.Make a pit or frame to the required size. Ideally spread a permeable underlay (added to your order for just £1.50 per metre square!)within this area to discourage any earth, weed or grass growing through.

2. Choose your required depth - in many play situations 50mm per sq metre will suffice, depending on your play equipment but the table below shows you the stringent BS EN 11773 : 2008.

3. Spread Terrasofta evenly, making sure any rigid framework is well outside the likely area of fall - enjoy terrasofta all year round.
