Using Artificial Grass in schools & nurseries

PlaySmart have undertaken a number of artificial grass installation jobs since our launch of Green Frog Artificial Grass back in August, so we thought it was about time we shared a quick case study on one!

Our most recent artificial grass job was on behalf of Red Monkey Play at Our Lady & St Huberts’ Catholic Primary School in Oldbury. The Primary School have got a trim trail area in their playground, which they wanted to give a more natural feel to. Installing artificial grass around the kit helps break up the monotony of tarmac playground, creating a bright play space for the children.

Our Lush Lawn 35 artificial grass is a fantastic choice for Primary Schools and nurseries alike. Not only is the maintenance incredibly easy, but the grass is child friendly and there will be no muddy mess. The artificial grass is soft to the touch, creating another layer of sensory stimulation for the children.

If you’re wanting all the benefits of artificial grass, but also want to incorporate other patterns and designs, we are more than happy to do both! One option is to go for a velour grass carpet, as different colours can be used to create patterns, shapes or designs, such as this car themed play area at a local nursery.

The other option would be to go for a combination of wet pour and artificial grass. By doing this, you can create a wide range of designs, our favourites are this blue water splash and wiggly grass path. By having an inviting environment with colour and shapes, these schools and nurseries are helping develop the children’s minds and stimulate their imagination.
