Sustainably enjoying natures natural products such as wood chip or play bark has so many wonderful advantages however, during the manufacturing and screening process a small proportion of larger pieces of wood, ie ‘wood shards’ may fall through the screens and be contained in the finished product. If these wood shards are considered to be a hazard and in line with good practice ‘post installation’, they can be physically removed, by hand.

"Just a thank you for my delivery and I am very pleased with the quality of the product and the way things were sorted by yourselves on my behalf."

“We installed Playbark.com’s Equestrian Softwood Chip on our new gallop last summer and it had over 80 horses training on it daily throughout the winter. It never let us down once, coping excellently with all weather conditions! It has held up extremely well with very little deterioration and has been consistently safe to train on. I would strongly recommend anyone thinking of putting in a gallop or ménage to use this product”
