I am pleased to be able to offer a reference for Green Roots. I am on the Parents' Auxiliary of St. Michael's University School, and Green Roots was the company we selected, for our Middle School play structure.
We were primarily interested in dealing with a local company, for ease of communication, and to keep the costs of area preparation and installation down, and we also liked the variety of product lines they were able to provide us.
We selected the sustainable product line, PlayMart. Karl at Green Roots was very pleasurable to work with. He was knowledgeable about the different products, and had great suggestions for various equipment based on the age range of the children we were dealing with. He was also very forthcoming about the strengths and limitations of various products, and was able to clearly explain the safety parameters and requirements of each piece of equipment. We had a very challenging space to deal with due to small size, zoning restrictions, budget constraints, and the need for the equipment to be easily relocated. He was very thorough in his assessment of our location, and was able to make excellent suggestions based on our unique situation. This was a marked contrast to another equipment representative from a Vancouver based company, who offered very little insight for us.
Green Roots was also forthcoming about sales/discounts, and were always available by phone or email, for questions. They worked closely with our school's grounds people, and the crew was professional. They kept to the budget, and even gave us a free maintenance kit for paint touch-ups, etc. We had a very tight timeline, which Green Roots were able to meet.
We only got word that our funding was in place in early July, and we had to have the equipment installed by mid-August. They ordered the products right away, and managed to have them installed early. Everyone is thrilled with the play structure! Green Roots made the whole process enjoyable.

“Our rural childcare centre was in the throws of looking for two new play structures that can withstand our mountain weather. We have very hot sunny days in the summer and huge snow
loads in the winter. We contacted different companies to ask about their equipment and were
pleased to get a response very quickly from GreenRoots play equipment. They were so
professional and helpful with all of our endless questions. We got the play equipment delivered in a timely manner with no problems what-so-ever! The children and teachers love the play structures we were able to install. Thank you so much Samantha and crew for helping us renovate our yards and make them fun and beautiful with the play structures from GreenRoots Play Equipment!”

In 2013 Green Roots Play Equipment supplied and installed what is now known in the Community as the “Fire Truck Park”. We have had hundreds of visitors use the play equipment without injuries and have found the equipment to be very durable and safe for all ages to use.
