Artificial grass has become a popular replacement for real grass in play areas and nurseries. There are many reasons for this which we will be exploring today. When children go outside to play at their local nursery or infant school you want to be safe in the knowledge they’re safe. With artificial grass there’s less opportunity for slippages with trips and falls. This is because artificial grass is less inclined to be slippy like natural grass lawns, especially after it’s been raining.
Wear and tear, what wear and tear?
There’s also the wear and tear of the surface itself as there’s going to be a lot of feet running around on it, playing, tumbling, kicking and generally having a great time. With a natural lawn, they’d be bringing in all sorts to the classroom, mud, insects and grass – leaving muddy and bald patches where they’ve been. That leaves some work for the handyman to roll his sleeves up for so it’s up to standards the next time they play out.
An artificial Grass Nursery area is easy to maintain.
With artificial grass there isn’t any of that as it stays clean and tidy all the time, regardless of all the children playing on it, and regardless of whether it’s been raining or there’s been snow and ice. Artificial grass looks the same all year round. It’s easy to clean and easy to maintain, so your children always have the perfect play area where they can develop and learn together safely.
A strong and durable play area.
Because artificial grass is so strong and durable it means that you’ll never have to worry about patchy lawns or lumpy hard surfaces. It’s the safe outdoor play area that’s good to go all year round, so your children always have somewhere safe to play.
Turn the nursery area into an exciting place to explore for children.
If you want to make your children’s nursery play area even more exciting a place to explore, then you can fit in other items such as climbing frames, swings, trampolines, slides, even a tree house!
Invest wisely in artificial grass and it’ll pay off over the long-term.
Although there’s an initial investment, an artificial grass play area will save you money in the long-term. This is because you won’t be paying someone to mow it, maintain it and remove weeds, moss and insects from it on a regular basis. So, with cuts in education budgets it’s good to know that you can at least save money in some areas.
