Ferring Country Centre is an independent charity based in West Sussex, providing training and work experience for people with learning disabilities. Theories Landscapes were commissioned to design and build a small toddler tractor course on an unused part of the Dales Farm area of the Country Centre.
The client was keen to provide a farm attraction that was safe and simple but engaging for the children and within the confines of an already fenced off area.
Theories worked with the client and produced a concept including:
- Rubber mulch for the tractor track. This is a recycled material, consistent in height, long lasting with little or no maintenance and inherently safe in the event of a fall.
- Artificial grass which is low maintenance, inherently safe and provides the consistent level height needed between the grass and the track surface – without needing the constant care and cutting that real grass would require.
Theories selected Perfectly Green Diablo synthetic turf which is a very popular 35mm grass for homes, gardens, playgrounds, and other applications. Diablo is also tested and accredited as suitable for critical fall height up to 3m.
We supply a variety of artificial grass surfaces for playground projects including landscaping grasses, coloured grass options, plus the necessary safety systems required where high level play equipment is present.
