Featured Application: Island Child Care Playground Gets a Facelift Thanks to STI New England
This week’s Featured Application comes to us from Brian St. Germain with STI of New England. Brian and his team recently installed this 3000 square feet project at the Island Child Care playground in Portsmouth, Rhode Island.
The Director of the daycare called Brian asking for a solution to the muddy and patchy mess of a lawn area behind the facility. The mud prevented the kids from having outdoor recess after it rained, and the traffic that the space saw when it was dry created a patchy mess.
Brian and his team removed the existing soil and grass and replaced that material with an compacted aggregate base. They installed over 3000 square feet of SoftLawn? Bluegrass Blend.
They infilled the project with 12/20 Envirofill, a coated sand that provides a cleaner option than rounded silica sand.
“We understand how important play is for a kid’s development,” St. Germain. He added, “We’re so excited to be able to provide the kids with a clean, safe place to play.”
