Bowling Green Ditch Fill
Here at Safer Surfacing we know that bowling is a great sport and hobby for people of all ages and from all types of backgrounds. We also know the effort and care put into making a truly fantastic bowling green and the surrounding area is immense.
There are many types of bowling green ditch fill available today and we will touch on just a few of them here to highlight the benefits of our recycled rubber ditch fill.
Sand as a ditch fill
A lot of bowling clubs still use the traditional sand infill for their ditches and this does provide a relatively soft landing area for the woods. The issue that can occur is that with the Great British weather often being rather rainy the sand can compact and then puddle. Our recycled rubber ditch fill does not compact and therefore does not puddle – creating a soft landing area with no puddles.
Gravel and stone as a ditch fill
We supplied a bowling club with 2 x 500kg bulk bags of our ditch fill rubber to replace their gravel ditch fill. The main reasons for the swap was because although the gravel didn’t puddle, it did tend to scratch the woods a little. The other factor was that the gravel occasionally got disturbed and ended up on the green and had actually broken a blade on the mower. The light and soft nature of our ditch fill rubber means that even if it does end up under the lawn mower, no damage will be done.
Why rubber as a ditch fill?
Our ditch fill rubber chipping is soft, durable, cheap and long-lasting. The recycled chipping from Safer Surfacing is light and very simple to install too!
How much will I need?
We have supplied a lot of bowling greens up and down the UK and experience has taught us that a typical green will require 2 x 500kg bulk bags to dress all four ditches. We can also sell the ditch fill rubber in smaller quantities if required – please just telephone us on 0151 357 1391 and one of our team will be happy to help.
How is it delivered?
You can see all our delivery information here. Basically, the bulk bags are on a pallet and they are delivered using a pallet network company who will use a vehicle with a tail lift on. The driver will place the pallets on a hard and flat surface at the most convenient location they can access using a hand pump truck. Please note that the driver and pump truck cannot deliver on inclines, uneven surfaces and soft surfaces so do please give us a call and we can arrange a convenient place.
Can we have a sample?
By all means! If you or your committee would like a sample of our bowling green ditch fill then just call us or send us an email and we will be delighted to send a sample of our product to your preferred address.
