Made specially to order, a 4ft x 4ft (approx) hand built child's wooden sandpit
You are looking at a 4ft x 4ft child’s sandpit with a fixed lid which subtly opens out to make two seating areas.
You will need roughly 150 kg of play sand to adequately fill it.
Note that play sand is recommended as opposed to builders’ sand which can stain clothing.
The frame is made from 2 durable pieces of 2400mm x 210mm x 40mm treated hardwood timber, which has had a double thickness of 100gsm weed control fabric ground cover membrane attached to the underside.
This is designed to contain the sand, allow water to pass through, and prevent weeds from penetrating.
The seating area/lid is made from treated decking, while the hinges and screws and other fixings are of exterior quality.
The sandpit is very sturdy and can withstand 2 adults sitting either side on the seats or even walking across the lid when shut.
It should definitely outlast your child’s usage of it, and if treated regularly, could outlast your child’s offspring’s usage (the sand may need changing by then).
N.B. READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU PLACE AN ORDER:
Should you choose to order one of these solidly built sandpits, I will require a 50% deposit with the balance payable upon completion, which I guarantee will be in less than 1 week from receipt of your deposit.
The finished result may vary slightly depending upon the type of decking available at the time. NO OFFERS.
The sand is not included (you will need approximately 150 kg) and it is advised you buy play sand, as builders’ sand can stain clothing.
I suggest you buy it from a reputable company such as B&Q, where, at the time of writing, you can get two bags of 22.5kg for £8.
Bargain Buys are offering a 10kg bag for £2.
Although the sandpit is made from treated wood, you will still be required to stain/paint it yourself with an exterior product to protect the wood.
Because of the dimensions of the item, you may require a van to transport it.
Two adults can carry it easily.
