Project

Following the successful installation of artificial grass for St Thomas of Canterbury Primary School in 2015 around playground equipment, including colours and educational graphics, SSP was chosen to install artificial grass into an unused part of the school grounds.

Solution

The area was cleared of weeds and a type 1 mot base installed, with a wet pour rubber base installed over the top. Similar to a 3G sports surface, this provides a shock pad underneath the artificial grass, making it softer underfoot and providing a smoother surface for the artificial grass overlay.

Benefits

  • No mud
  • Safe play surface
  • Colourful and engaging
  • Hard-wearing
  • Economical
  • Easy to maintain

Outcome

The area was transformed from an unusable waste ground into a very usable playground area that is ideal for children to play games in or just lie in the sun.

SSP artificial play grass is softer than sports turf and is still hardwearing. Ideal for school and nursery playgrounds, it is available in different colours and with games included such as hopscotch, four square and number snakes.

Artificial grass is ideal for playgrounds to create a safe play surface and to reduce the mud levels in natural turf.
