Please see video transcript below:

00:06 Hi guys, it’s Dan from Soft Surfaces here and today we’re going to be showing you a rubber mulch installation at the Bull & Dog Inn, Burscough, Ormskirk area.

00:14 So the first thing we do here is actually install the Geotextile Membrane, which is placed onto the surface. So as you can see this is a necessary part which we then install the rubber mulch on top of.

00:24 After the membrane is placed, the rubber mulch is then prepared, so you can see on this video here we’re preparing that mulch then to be installed.

00:32 After this, the rubber mulch is actually applied to the surface. So these photos you can see it being installed there. It’s a very nice natural finish, but obviously gives the kids the safety that they need.

00:38 And here’s the completed project now. So it’s a great little playground surface this for this Inn, as obviously it gives the kids ability to play whilst the family are going out for a meal or drink or whatever they’re doing, and obviously keeps the kids safe being rubber mulch, and being that rubber soft surface.

00:52 So that’s a really nice close up photo there of the surface itself.

00:56 If you enjoyed this video. Thanks for watching, guys, and I’ll see you guys later.
