Our Play Bark is the ideal soft-landing surface for school playgrounds, public outdoor children’s playgrounds or a play area within your domestic garden or communal area. Play bark offers a soft and aesthetically appealing solution for outdoor play locations.   

Our bark is a by-product of our trusted timber suppliers, reusing and recycling the left-over bark from trees. It is then cleaned, treated and filtered to ensure safety and longevity before being bagged and delivered to our warehouse. With a light, chocolate brown shading, play bark provides a visually appealing finish and effective covering for any surface.

George Davies Turf sources one of the best Pine Bark products in the Country. We have it screened so the Bark is between 30 – 60 mm making sure it’s made up with a very minimal amount of dust and fines as well as only a 5% content of white wood.

Our Play Bark is absolutely ideal for busy public playgrounds and domestic play areas where both aesthetics and safety are extremely important.

We believe we have the method that makes for an experience where you are looked after from the moment you call about our products, right through to taking delivery and beyond that with our aftercare.

All of our products are delivered with lorry mounted forklift trucks, enabling us to place the bags exactly (within reason) where you want them to be. Gravel drives, long narrow tracks along with placing the bags around the back of the house is not a problem. The only limitations we have are high fences and the width of the areas – we also allow for a 9ft x 9ft access.

We as a company attempt to try and make your life as easy as possible, we offer the option to hold the bags so you can split, allowing the bark to be left in a pile or dotted around n area – we only ask you come equipped with a sharp knife.
