There are so many advantages to having an artificial grass playground that we intend to use this post to convince you of its benefits. After all, you’ll probably have enough to do without worrying about the cost of playground maintenance once the kids are back in school.

When Summer is Over, Children Still Want to Play Outside

Yes, the summer has drawn to a close and children are now back at school, ready for the autumn term and enjoying their playtime breaks. You’ll know already about the cost and time of maintaining the playground area, and wouldn’t it be great if you could actually cut out some of the time it takes and devote that extra free time to other endeavours?

No More Mess

When the children find their way back into the school corridor they usually bring mud and grass with them and that leaves more work for your cleaners and for your staff.

If your children suffer with allergies, then you probably hear a lot of sneezing and coughing as a result of pollen. It can really take its toll on kids, leaving them fatigued and lethargic. Artificial grass is the best answer for that and it means they can go outside and enjoy their playtime breaks in comfort.

Rough and Tumble of the Playground

Children enjoy their playground breaks, and the playground is subjected to a lot of running, jumping and fooling around. It can take its toll after a while, whereas an artificial grass playground can withstand the onslaught. We make our artificial grass for playgrounds extra tough and they have been treated in such a way that they can take all that a child is willing to throw at it.

Great to Look At

What’s great about artificial grass playgrounds is that aesthetically, it simply looks great, and that’s after children have been playing on it all morning in all conditions. This means the exterior part of your school always looks well cared for and presentable all year round.

There’s also no need for lawnmowers or gardeners because artificial grass more or less takes care of itself, so you save time and money. There’s plenty of excellent styles, many of which are equally suitable for schools.
