This unique and challenging project was the result of a great partnership between Contrax and a homeowner who wished to provide the ultimate backyard play center centre for their growing family. Contrax was originally approached with the challenge of helping turn a once disused and overgrown backyard into a one-off custom multi sports surface hockey turf for this hockey mad family. Working alongside the family, Contrax developed a design from their initial ideas and delivered a truly awesome area.

The construction included earthworks, drainage, multiple new retaining walls (block & timber), platypus anchors in an existing block wall, complete preparation for the base for the multisport surface including concrete edging and drainage, construction of the concrete base for the cricket cage, balustrade fencing and basic landscaping to complete the works.

One of the more complicated aspects of the project was the tight confines and very limited access. Working with the family we came up with a solution which both maximized production and reduced the impact on the family and neighbors.

The final result is a stunning backyard and called upon all Contrax many years of experience to deliver. We are very proud to have been able to help this family create this wonderful backyard.
