Naturally, if you’re in charge of a nursery or playground then you want it to be an area that’s safe and free from hazards for your children to play. Traditionally grass has been the familiar turf for playgrounds, with at least half if not all of it covered with grass and concrete. Children like to play netball, but also grass based games which require a healthy turf on which to play.
Don’t Bring the Playground Back Inside
After they’ve played on the grass outside, they come back into the school, and if it’s wet and muddy, they’ll be bringing half of the turf into the school with them. It’s a headache keeping the corridors clean, but more importantly some of your children spend the school year battling hay-fever and other familiar allergies related to tree and grass pollen. It’s often a case of sneezing and coughing, which means that playtime isn’t the same fun as it is for everybody else.
Artificial Grass – Perfect For Nurseries and School Playgrounds
What a lot of nurseries and schools are finding is that artificial grass playgrounds are a great solution to those issues. It’s not only practical, it’s aesthetically beneficial. Once the natural grass play area has been played on several times and the weather has done it’s worse, it often looks muddy, dry and patchy. Not so with artificial grass, it looks green and lush throughout the year. This means the outside of your school looks as presentable and in pristine condition giving the right impression to visitors.
Artificial Grass is Durable and Tough
Unlike a domestic garden, playgrounds are used much more intensively with more footfall, and the ground suffers as a result. To give children the best surface to play on, the ground need to be able to put up with the rigours of constant use.
