RECREATIONAL

MQG are proud to release their new range of recreational sands!

In the past, the recreational oval and sports field construction/ top dressing market for growing & drainage mediums has been very difficult to achieve with just one material.

MQG has now solved this problem with its manufactured range of technically controlled “Recreation Sands”. The one material can now assist in solving the drainage issue and still have all the abilities for the promotion of sufficient turf growth. After many years of supplying growing/drainage mediums to the greater Victorian turf sporting venues, MQG has worked tirelessly in developing and manufacturing a growing medium which holds its integrity as part of the “drainage solution system”.

MQG have ensured these technically specified sands are manufactured to the highest quality, all internal testing is based around USGA confidence intervals test method ASTM, which are supported by ISO 9001:2015

Other traditional uses for all our recreational sands have been, sports and recreation arenas, racing tracks, golf course construction, dressage arenas, lawn top dressing, landscaping, horse arena footings to name a few
