A selection of some of the nice things our customers have said about us...
After much research we specifically chose Earth Wrights to create our new rural community playpark. They provided us with a bespoke design, carefully including all items we requested and additional ones to better suit our needs. Their robust equipment is sustainable, inventive and looks wonderful both in design conception and completion. Communication and enthusiasm for our project both in the office and on site was professional and courteous and I would highly recommend them.
Fleur Powell, Holne Playpark.
We chose Earth Wrights because we believed in them and their product. We have not been disappointed. From the very first meeting we were enthused by their ideas. The play area they have come up with for us is innovative and takes on board all of our ideas. It will challenge and excite children at our setting for many years to come. The men on site were fantastic, really friendly and quite happy to share the progress of the project with our children.
Throughout the whole project we have been nothing but pleased with the standard of the work and the ethic and vision of all involved. Thank you Earth Wrights you have made our ideas into an exciting reality!!!!!
Vicky Oakes, Bishops Cornish Pre School.
Now that our new play area has been in use for several weeks we would like to thank you for the positive way in which the task was approached from consultation and planning through to completion.
The children enjoyed the very practical consultation exercise that kicked off the whole process and their thinking is very much evident in the final design. The plans themselves stimulated much interest amongst staff, governors and parents and provided an excellent support for grant applications.
Your time on site was conducted professionally and flexibility to the point where minor adaptations could be made as the project developed. Your use of natural materials and hand built structures created on site was very impressive and they are extremely robust. This last point is very important for us as not only are 250 children using the area during the week but it is open to the community during evenings, weekends and holidays.
We refer to this as the Highweek Adventure Play project and it fits that title well as it provides the children with adventurous and imaginative play opportunities which were not available before.
Finally the impact during these first few weeks on children’s behaviour at break times has been dramatic with an 80% drop in playground incidents. There has also been a noticeable drop in playground ‘contact injuries’ bumped heads accidental trips etc.
Thank you again and we look forward to working with you on the next phase of our project.
David Glenny, Highweek Community Primary School.
Thank you so much for all your help in furnishing our classroom balcony. We are delighted with the quality and look of all the products, more importantly the children are absolutely loving their new outdoor space.
Your mud kitchen unit and the trough which we have filled with sand are always busy. The well constructed planters not only make the space look good but will also give the children somewhere to grow their own vegetables and flowers. We have planted up two of them with apple trees and look forward to the first pickings. The log seats and planks are fantastic and provide the small space with lots of options.
We look forward to working on our next space with you.

I feel compelled to write and express my admiration for all those who were involved in the creation of the play area at King George’s Park in Elburton. I drive past the play area at least 4 times a day on my way to and from work. Gone are the days when all that could be seen was a lone toddler being pushed on a sad swing by a parent or a group of teenager hanging around on the grass banks with nothing better to do.
If ever there was an advert for how high quality play provision can bring families together then come to King Georges Park. It is like an oasis in a desert. Now you can see mums, dads, grannies, granddads, children both young and old, sharing time together. I have seen children digging contentedly in the sand with their own buckets and spades and engrossed with the delights of the bucket pulley, mums breast feeding their babies under a beautiful shady tree, dads shouting encouragement to their offspring on the balancing rope and challenging climbing logs, grannies and granddads perched on log seating waiting for their charges to come and sit on a picnic blanket for a drink and friends shrieking with delight as they share the net swing that goes really high. And the way that the children can enter the park, not just through the gate, but over the fence is a genius idea!
By now you will have realised that I have not just driven by but stopped and had a closer look at the miracle in our midst. The quality if the craftsmanship is outstanding. The girth is the wooden logs used in all the structures, the incorporation of the grassy bank, use of sand, clever planting and seating is amazing. It looks as though the park has grown organically over many years and not been constructed overnight. It is in tune with the environment and in tune with what children and their families need and want.
Please pass on my heartfelt respect and admiration to all those who must have the passion, vision and commitment to providing quality play for Plymouth. Keep up the good work because you are making a difference.
Karen Searle, King Georges Park, Elburton.
I am writing this to express my gratitude to Earth Wrights for the wonderful play area designed, and installed by you. From the first meeting with Mike at the site it was obvious how different your company was from others I had met. He saw the same magic as the children in the area and the bespoke design incorporated the children’s favourite parts.
As none of the committee had been involved in a project like this previously, we did a lot of research, visiting many play areas and talking to play experts. I also did research on the net and it was obvious that your design is exactly in line with current thinking.
As we were beginners, you were both very patient and always went through any queries we had and for this, again thankyou.
When you came to carry out the installation, all your workers were extremely polite and friendly and as the site is beside a pathway to schools, they took the time to speak to the parents and children and I had many complimentary remarks about them.
We are looking forward to officially opening the area when we hold our Easter Egg Hunt and would love you and your families to join us.
I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone and I know the rest of the committee feel the same.
Vera Dumbleton, friends of Macandrew Field.
I must write and say how delighted we are with the new playground equipment. The design is perfect. It fits in exactly with the nautical theme that we have in the play area and provides a wonderful area for practicing climbing skills for all abilities as well as providing great opportunities for imaginative play.
I was very impressed with the speed at which it was constructed and the happy friendly disposition of all involved.
Randall Brook, Mawnan C of E VA School.
The park built by Earth Wrights has had a huge effect on the town. It has created a hub that wasn't previously there.
The special thing about it is how all ages from babies to grannies seem all to be catered for (and more importantly, independently entertained ) , rather than the standard park, where a mother awkwardly follows a toddler around trying to stop it hurting itself, whilst the older kids are bored.
I know of many people who come to Falmouth specifically as a day out in the park. Which given the appeal of the beaches says an awful lot.
Apart from the appeal, from a professional structural point of view, the build is also of exceptional quality, durability, and ethically and sustainably sourced.
11 out of 10 all round!

Thank you Earth Wrights for your inspirational ideas and quality workmanship, from the consultation period right through to completion of the wonderful outdoor areas at the nursery.
Earth Wrights are a professional, friendly and passionate team who brought their creative ideas to support our vision for a natural play space... and succeeded.
Karyn Knight, Earlybirds Childcare, Plymouth.
Your installation team were very professional and worked really hard to complete our project especially with very inquisitive children watching their every move!
The area has proved a great success with the pre-school children, who are becoming confident and creative explorers!!
Sharman Giles, Deputy Manager, YMCA Mullion.
A huge thank you for all of your amazing hard work.
You have truly enriched the lives of our children. Their futures are brighter because of you!
The Early Years Team, The Hyde School, London.
We were delighted with the speed and efficiency with which Earth Wrights erected the new play equipment at Stancombe Manor. Their service was exemplary from start to finish and the installation staff are both considerate and personable.
David Montrieff, Stancombe Manor, Kingsbridge.
We are absolutely thrilled with the outdoor area recently developed by Earth Wrights.
From the consultation stage to the construction stage, the process could not have been smoother and the staff could not have been more friendly or accommodating.
We chose Earth Wrights due to their passion of using natural materials and promoting open-ended, language provocative areas for children to explore. As an inner city school, we are immensely fortunate to have such a large outdoor area and the recent developments have completely renewed our passion for outdoor learning. The project has also inspired us to develop other areas ourselves, using the same style of recycled, natural materials.
Thank you Earth Wrights. The play area is simply wonderful and we could not be happier with it!
Hannah Francis, Nelson Primary School, Birmingham.
We really like your professionalism, craftsmanship and care taken on site. Earth Wrights delivered exactly what was asked of them.
You worked to deadline and within budget which is extraordinary in this day and age.
Children have already been making the most of the new space, playing outside long into the winter evenings.
Simon Buchanan, Waterperry Gardens, Oxfordshire.
Not only are Earth Wrights professional play area builders, they are professional educators…two very difficult skills to combine. It was so nice to work with people that see beyond the task and know the purpose of really making something that matters.
