School Case Studies
Garden Grass were requested to transform Heaton Dene’s current outdoor play area from a needle punch surface to a fully maintenance free soft play area.
The needle punch had deteriorated despite only being a few years old. These photos show how dirt had become imbedded into the surface and
moss was forming on the edges.
The new artificial grass was laid once the old needle punch surface had been removed. The existing rubber base was cleaned up prior to installation. Our Deseo grass product was used, which we recommended as a dense, soft and very realistic surface. The expected lifespan is over 15 years.
Many schools are now choosing to upgrade needle punch to artificial grass. Call us for more information.
Al Furqan Primary School in Birmingham needed to replace their hard tarmac area with a soft play sports area for the children.
The artificial grass can improve safety with reduced impact injuries caused by a hard surface such as tarmac. It is also more aesthetically pleasing and clean with no mud or dirt.
Artificial Grass Sports Surface
A two tone soft sports turf was laid with a sand infill. The area now provides an all weather solution for the children to play.
The children and teachers were delighted with the new artificial grass.
New Outdoor School Flooring
One of the teachers commented on the new artificial grass, “We are so pleased with it thanks again and for the service”.
Notice how this particular artifical grass installation has a non-uniform shape. The grass was cut to follow the pathway curvature and allow for trees within the centre.
Lytham High School in Lancashire have won an award in conjunction with Garden Grass for their pupil designed “Anti Bullying Area”.
The rotary club sponsored the garden which has synthetic grass covering a large metal leaf to illustrate a safe zone.
New Playground Flooring
The area around the school playground needed attention. This would allow an additional 300 sq metre’s for the children to play on.
The school did not want hard landscaping as the majority of the area was on a gradient. Garden Grass Omneo was chosen as a perfect soft play surface. We installed this around the playground.
New Playground Flooring
“The result is great!! We are really happy with the finished product, and the children absolutely love it!!
Thank you Garden Grass!!!”
Playground Flooring Requirements
The original concrete flooring at Cold Aston primary school was typical of many playgrounds. Concrete is an inexpensive, durable and practical surface but offers poor aesthetics with no safety advantages.
The school commisioned Garden Grass to install safety playground flooring to reduce the risks associatated with play activities. This new project was aimed to capture the children’s imagination and improve outside appearances whilst keeping safety in mind.
Artificial Grass Project Preperation
Artificial grass flooring was to be part of a major refurbishment of the school playground. The school received a site drawing from ESP (Education and Special Projects Limited) which shows how two seating areas are to be integrated with the new artificial grass.
Notice how this project highlights the diverse range of applications for artificial grass flooring. ESP installed a traversing wall, magnetic game boards and other curiousities which created a fantastically unique play area.
New School Playground Flooring
Cold Aston school chose our popular “Relax” grass (see product menu) as their playground flooring. This is a durable but soft 19mm two tone grass, which is perfect as a non-abrasive saftey surface. Artificial grass is guarenteed for five years so the children will no doubt enjoy many terms of fun play time.
Garden Grass want to help your school enjoy the same benefits of superior playground flooring. Call us today for your free consultation and see how artificial grass can make the difference.
Safety flooring was required for the school playground underneath the climbing frame and play equipment. The exisiting tarmac base was considered unsafe and did not suit the surrounding area. Garden Grass were asked to provide a more suitable playground flooring solution with safety in mind.
This is one of two play areas that were covered in a soft, two tone 30mm grass.
Outdoor Play Flooring
The new outdoor flooring has a padded underlay to avoid injury if a child falls off the playground equipment. The artificial grass looks real and is hard wearing against heavy usage from the children’s play time.
More schools are now opting for artificial grass as a realistic and practical outdoor flooring solution. Free grass samples are available on request so you can try out our turf today.
All Weather Play Area
The school playground was boggy and the children could not play on it. Safety and dirt were both an issue so new outdoor flooring was urgently required.
We transformed the area in 5 days over the Easter holidays and the school returned to a new child friendly playground with artificial grass. Everyone at Highfield Grange is delighted with the new outdoor all weather play area.
