“From start to finish I felt we were in good hands. The initial quotations gave us options that were sensible and easy-to-understand and we had plenty of advice to help us choose the right one. When it came to installation, it happened on time and with a minimum of fuss, bearing in mind that school was in session. During installation, we were invited to watch and were given explanations as to what was happening. The follow up has been great and Tom has readily answered our queries. The surface, Matchplay 2, is superb, does exactly what 'it says on the tin' and has been a marvellous addition to our facilities”

“I am 110% happy with the service I received from Tom and his team at Bradleys Surfacing Systems. From initial conversations and site visits, through to the drawings based on our expectations and discussions and the installation itself, the team provided an exceptional, friendly and personable service. They also provided valuable recommendations for which surface to use, with which shock pad and how the sub-base had to be constructed for optimum performance meeting our needs and durability. If only all contractors were like this.”

“At St John the Baptist Catholic Primary School, we wanted to transform a tired and unused internal courtyard area into a vibrant outdoor space and that aim has certainly been achieved. We now have a visually interesting and very useable outdoor learning space which the children absolutely love. The quality of materials and workmanship is excellent and the whole process from design to completion was well organised, safe and efficient. All of our many visitors positively comment about this new space, which really has created a buzz in our school community. Our vision and brief was clearly translated by Bradleys Surfacing Systems and we couldn't be happier with the finished result.”

“Bradley’s Surfacing have equipped our school with an excellent all weather cricket pitch within a very small window of opportunity. Tom and his team worked tirelessly to meet our deadlines with the quality of the wicket a testament to their skills. We look forward to working with you again soon in the near future.”

“Keen to improve the playground environment at Childs Hill School, and after securing some Olympic Legacy Funding, we began to look into companies to carry out an installation for us. After a recommendation we started discussions with Bradleys, they really seemed to understand our needs and offered good solutions. In the main playground they designed a cost effective solution that would not only deliver a high performing sports surface but also be versatile enough for general play time use. They involved us in the line marking design from the very start which meant that all involved felt part of the process. In a nursery area we employed Bradleys to install a more natural looking grass that is soft and easy for staff to keep clean, it’s a real treat for us being a London school with no playing field. We found Bradleys a great company to work with, with good communication running up to the work being carried out and the project being completed in the allocated time frames. I would recommended them to any school looking for sports and landscaping surfacing.”

“Bradleys were approached by Farncombe Infant and Nursery School transform an existing natural turf area into a synthetic turf surface. The area was regularly becoming water logged and with overgrowing trees, it received little sunlight, meaning the natural turf struggled to grow. Muddy feet and slippery ground were also common features. “I just want to thank you all for an amazing job. We are all extremely happy with the surface and finish – the children love it and you just made it all so easy for us. Very professional and exceptional value for money. Bradley’s returned in our Easter holiday to replace our old outside surface with ‘wet-pour’ surfacing. Thank You again – a very professional job – work completed on time and all of the staff very happy with the new area! It will mean our children can happily use the outside area throughout the summer term! Thank You.”

With minimum disruption to users of our premises and total co-operation with Town Council staff and members, Bradleys Surfacing Systems completely renewed our synthetic playing surface and we now have a facility which is second to none in the area.

“As a registered charity with limited resources, it was essential that we found the right contractor who could deliver a top quality product at an affordable price. Bradleys Surfacing Systems were, for me, streets ahead of the competition and dealing with Tom from enquiry through sale to construction and completion made project management as easy and straightforward as it could ever be.”

“In order to prepare our courts for the summer ahead, we employed Bradleys Surfacing Systems to carry out our annual court maintenance. We found the company flexible, efficient and the cost effective rejuvenation solution provided has been well suited to our needs. I would recommend them to any tennis club looking to have specialist maintenance works carried out.”

“Bradleys were contacted by Sixies Indoor Football Centre, Kingswinford to resurface an existing 6 a side pitch at the centre. As part of ongoing investment in the facilities at Sixes Football Centre, we required one of our pitches to be resurfaced. Bradleys Surfacing Systems had been maintaining our surfaces for a couple years prior and when it came to selecting a company to resurface the pitch, they were our first choice. They carried out the work at times that caused the least disruption to our clients; the installation was completed on schedule and in the most professional manner. They are a great company to work with and I would highly recommend them.”

“After a lot of heavy use, our 3G training courts were in need of professional maintenance. Having been introduced to Tom and his team in the summer, and being impressed with his professionalism and knowledge, I had no hesitation in calling on Bradleys Surfacing Systems to carry out the works. The work they have done for us is first class, and I would have no hesitation in recommending Bradleys to anyone else thinking of having work done to their artificial surface.”

“We chose Bradleys after having two other quotations and we are so pleased we did so. We had an old worn-out hard court and now have a lovely new carpeted one which is a joy to play on. We are getting on a bit and the thought of falling on a hard court is always at the back of your mind. Now that fear has completely gone and our game seems to have stepped up.The work was carried out with great good humour and politeness. We would most strongly recommend Bradleys.”

“We are delighted that we used Bradleys for our family garden sports pitch.  I liked Tom and the fact it was a family business right from the first site visit and I favoured their modern recycled plastic sub-base replacement.  They are a highly professional company who completed the area to time and budget, and we hardly noticed they were here! Tom was very flexible with regards to requests which came in from us as they went along.  Our three children are delighted with the area and are happily playing football, hockey, tennis and basketball after school and at the weekends”

“Our house already had a tarmac tennis court when we purchased it. Not being massive tennis players, we wanted to convert it to a more multi-use surface. We employed Bradleys Surfacing Systems to design a surface that would allow us to play football, hockey, cricket, basketball and tennis too. TigerTurf's Evo Excel was selected and the result is an all-weather surface we can use as a family year round – it’s transformed our court and Bradleys were great to work with.”

“Bradleys Surfacing Systems had previously installed artificial grass at my sisters property in 2013 and she was very pleased with the results. I contacted Tom to do my garden and he was very helpful from the outset. The work was done quickly and efficiently with no mess left behind! Tom has always been contactable and dealt with any issues very promptly. I am extremely pleased with the end result, and happy to recommend Tom and Bradleys Surfacing Systems to anyone thinking of having artificial grass installed.”

“We’d been looking to have an artificial lawn installed for over a year, but couldn’t find the right person to carry out the work for us. After a referral Mr Bradley came and showed us some samples and gave us a price, two weeks later the lawn was installed. The work was completed in a single day, it was delightful to come home from work and see it all finished our dog ‘Cookie’ also approves.”

“Ever since we moved into our house 5 years ago, the grass has not looked good! We re-turfed when we first moved in, but it didn’t really take well – our garden borders a park with lots of trees and the ground is so dry we can barely grow anything successfully, including the grass. Adding to that, three young children and their friends who play outside at any opportunity, we ended up with a very muddy, patchy, unsightly play area, which we weren’t happy about. In fact, we were quite embarrassed about it when people came round. We shopped around a bit for artificial grass and came across Bradley’s website. Their prices were very competitive and Tom was friendly and helpful, so we chose them. We happened to be going on holiday, so we arranged for the work to be done while we were away. What a transformation! We were absolutely delighted with it when we came home! It looks great and the children love playing on it. It’s soft if they fall and, best of all, no mud!We would highly recommend surfacing systems – its money well spent.”

“The guys from Bradleys Surfacing Systems turned up early and got to work on my lawn straight away. It was obvious from the way they went about their job they were very professional and experienced. In no time the old grass was up and away and the area levelled and compacted. The membranes went down and the grass was laid, and finished.  The two chaps who worked on my grass were very fast, they hardly stopped from the moment they arrived and got on with the job.  After it was finished they cleaned the place up to a good standard and left me with a brand new synthetic lawn that both myself and my family will enjoy for years to come.  I would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone who is interested in having a new synthetic lawn laid, it looks immaculate and I don’t have to mow it ever again!!”
