Artificial grass solutions for educational facilities
Artificial grass is extremely hard-wearing, versatile and easy to maintain. It therefore provides the perfect solution for schools and nurseries.
We’ve transformed the outside spaces of all sorts of educational facilities. The kids love it, as do the headmasters, teachers and maintenance staff we’ve worked with.
The case studies below demonstrate how artificial grass can be used in all types of school and nursery environments.
Northfield St Nicholas Primary Academy
This Lowestoft primary school had a variety of areas which needed brightening up. Having done some research they chose to go with tough, kid-proof artificial grass.
Many of the areas with natural grass had become bald and rather tired looking over the years. These areas were becoming hard to maintain and were just an added expense for the school to fund.
The areas where the artificial grass was needed for this project were not easy to reach! The main area which required covering was behind the school, and the only access was through the school itself.
This in itself was a problem, but now imagine the corridors which required heavy duty machinery being carted though, also being wall to wall glass!
First, we covered everywhere with floor coverings (just in case the glass shattered) and used a micro digger for the job. This amazing piece of kit allowed us to dig even in the tightest of spaces and fit through the doors to transit all waste.
The end result...
One very happy headmaster, hundreds of happy children. Absolutely no broken glass and 450 m2 of artificial grass installation supplied and finished in only three days!
As experts in artificial grass installations, we specialise only in this field. This offers the added bonus of knowing exactly how to provide a very thorough service. It also eliminates the hours of extra head-scratching time…
Meadow Brook Playcare
The Meadow Brook Playcare nursery in Saxmundham required a soft and durable outside play area which could be used all year round.
Real grass is sometimes not suitable for such areas due to the mud and wear and tear on the grass. Other disadvantages are the ongoing maintenance and costs; the bacteria which can be found in muddy/grassy areas and the allergies that real grass can induce.
In contrast, artificial grasses are amazing as they look natural, don’t scratch hands or knees and also prevent children looking as though they’ve been mud wrestling!
We provided an artificial grass area with shock proofing hidden underneath to add an extra soft landing from tumbles and falls.
The grass is incredibly easy to clean and maintain. This ensures the area is hygienic, whilst offering a wonderful area for little people to safely explore the world!
The end result...
Very happy parents, over-the-moon staff and the toughest critics of all, absolutely love their new play area!
