Why is Artificial Grass Great for School and Nursery Gardens?

Struggling to make the decision to move over to artificial grass? This blog has got it covered.

Horizon School installation

With kids playing tag, rolling down hills and all those ball games, nursery and school fields deal with a lot of wear and tear. It’s impossible to keep the grass looking pristine. That is unless you invest in fake grass. We are an artificial grass installer in Milton Keynes that can transform your nursery or school outdoor areas.

What are the benefits of artificial grass for a school or nursery?

Durability

All that heavy use in schools and nurseries can create bare patches and make your grass look unsightly. Large play equipment such as climbing frames can also obstruct the sunlight and prevent the grass from growing. With artificial grass, you’ll have an all-over coverage.

Safe playtime

The grassy areas of a school or nursery are crucial for exploring and playing. We all know how clumsy children are. Real grass poses some extra risk of injury with its stones and uneven terrain. Replacing real grass or hard concrete with artificial turf gives you that softer, safer surface that will result in fewer bumps and bruises.

Less mess

Parents are never impressed when they pick their children up and they’re covered in grass and mud stains. It’s hard to wash and adds to the pile of laundry. Artificial grass will put an end to all that. The caretaker and cleaner will be grateful for the reduction in muddy footprints brought inside too.

All-weather solution

We live in the UK so rain is inevitable year-round. Artificial grass dries quickly and doesn’t waterlog. Commercial artificial grass is an all-weather solution. It will reduce those wet play days when the kids are stuck in at break time or restricted to the concrete playground.

Save on maintenance costs

It takes a lot to keep a real grass lawn in tip-top condition. With artificial grass, there’s no need to mow or weed so you’ll reduce maintenance costs. You’ll save money on the fuel required to power the mower and maintain the equipment. You also won’t have to pay out on fertiliser or weed killer.

Better for allergy sufferers

One of the main causes of hay fever is pollen from the grass itself. Mowing releases the pollen into the air and causes a host of horrid symptoms like sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes, scratchy throat and coughing. With an estimated 10 million people in the UK thought to have hay fever, you’ll be reducing that suffering for many of the children and staff.

Fresh and bright look

If you want a lush green play area to encourage the kids outside, artificial grass is your answer. While real grass can look brown or faded, the bright colour of fake grass will captivate little ones. The appearance of your nursery or school is important when you’re showing prospective parents around. With artificial grass, you can feel confident your outdoor space will always look fresh, inviting and mood-lifting.
