Best Artificial Grass Installs in Schools no.1Posted on: 18th January, 2013
We’ve finally reached it, our biggest and best school installation of 2012. We’re very proud of the outcome of this installation which was done in cooperation with an very close partner of ours, specialising in custom school landscaping. Situated in London, this school decided to really break the mould when it came to outdoor play areas and we’re really proud of a number of things that we achieved during this project.
The complete project used around 400 square metres of our Cambridgeshire artificial grass blended around, as you can see in the gallery below, a selection of natural effect outdoor furnishings, rockeries, flowerbeds and footpaths. Once completed the area looked more like a garden than a school ground! What we hope you’ll notice too though is that complexity really is no problem for the artificial grass installation team at Perfectly Green, so if you’re sat contemplating the investment alongside a feature that you’ve got your heart set on keeping, proof is here that it really can be done!
With such a complex and exciting project like this, involving numerous suppliers, it is of course important that each team plays its part in completing the project as a whole and we were delighted to have had the entire job completed in only 5 days – and that includes all of the preparatory groundwork. You’ll even notice from the gallery below that our customer chose to install climbing frames meaning that they had a legal requirement for protection from falling. Of course, one of the major benefits of using artificial grass as a school playing surface is how it can be combined with shockpads certfiied to a criticial fall height which we used in a number of places on this installation. You won’t however notice any change in the laying of the grass around the structures despite having inches of shockpads beneath them. The grass itself is laid over the top and ground raised around the pads to create a perfectly natural looking play space that matches all of the safety requirements needed for a school play area.
Please take a good look through the gallery of this, our favourite school installation of 2012 and if you have any questions or would like to know more about this, or any other school installation from our countdown, then don’t hesitate to give us a call!
