The most suitable type of surface to install in a garden, playground or other outdoor space will largely depend on which sports and activities going to be hosted. There are essentially four common surface types available to choose from; polymeric rubber, concrete, natural turf and artificial grass.


With the exception of athletics which is often done on either concrete or polymeric rubber, most sports such as football and hockey are played best on natural turf or artificial grass.

For many reasons, artificial pitches are the now the preferred surface of most owners and participants. It is primarily the case that artificial surfaces provide a consistent, level and quality sports surface all year round - requiring a very low level of maintenance with strong resilience and longevity.

Natural Turf

Professional football players would continue to maintain that natural turf pitches are superior to artificial in terms of suitable ball roll, bounce and overall player experience. 

On balance for most domestic and amateur level sports and activities, the merits of artificial surfaces outweigh the natural option.

Polymeric Rubber

A Polymeric rubber sports surface is the ultimate versatile solution to accommodate the widest range of outdoor sports and activities.

Polymeric rubber is formed from granules bound together with polyurethane and can be used all your round.

3G Artificial Grass

3G artificial grass is currently the most advanced recognised version of synthetic turf sport surface.

The surface is infilled with rubber crumb particles, helping to support the grass fibres and keep them vertical and taut.

2G Synthetic Turf

2G synthetic turf is either filled or dressed with sand, depending on the nature of the sports and activities likely to be played on it.

The sand is a key ingredient applied within the fibres of the surface to improve its stability and generally improve performance. 2G is extremely popular in schools, nurseries and colleges due to its versatility and proportionate cost.
