Grass HatAs Good As Grass have transformed the play area of schools across the UK with artificial grass. This non-abrasive and aesthetically pleasing modern playground flooring solution is now increasingly popular due to safety concious schools and parents. Many schools are also replacing old wet pour or needle punch surfaces with artificial grass.

Teddington School

Ape Theatre with Synthetic Turf

The school wanted to create a theatre effect with soft landscaping to fit into the outside environment. The installation needed to be exact and the grass had to fit to precisely.

Heaton Dene Nursery

Needle Punch

Needle Punch
As Good As Grass were requested to transform Heaton Dene’s current outdoor play area from a needle punch surface to a fully maintenance free soft play area.

The needle punch had deteriorated despite only being a few years old. These photos show how dirt had become imbedded into the surface and moss was forming on the edges.


 

Artificial Grass

The new artificial grass was laid once the old needle punch surface had been removed. The existing rubber base was cleaned up prior to installation. Our Deseo grass product was used, which we recommended as a dense, soft and very realistic surface. The expected lifespan is over 15 years.

Many schools are now choosing to upgrade needle punch to artificial grass. Call us for more information.

Tarmac Replacement

School Play Area

The artificial grass can improve safety with reduced impact injuries caused by a hard surface such as tarmac. It is also more aesthetically pleasing and clean with no mud or dirt.

One of the teachers commented on the new artificial grass, “We are so pleased with it thanks again and for the service”.

Notice how this particular artifical grass installation has a non-uniform shape. The grass was cut to follow the pathway curvature and allow for trees within the centre.

Ashton St. Peters School

New Playground Flooring

The area around the school playground needed attention. This would allow an additional 300 sq metre’s for the children to play on.

The school did not want hard landscaping as the majority of the area was on a gradient. As Good As Grass Ambassador was chosen as a perfect soft play surface. We installed this around the playground.

Cold Aston Primary School

Playground Flooring Requirements

Playground Flooring Requirements
The original concrete flooring at Cold Aston primary school was typical of many playgrounds. Concrete is an inexpensive, durable and practical surface but offers poor aesthetics with no safety advantages.

The school commisioned As Good As Grass to install safety playground flooring to reduce the risks associatated with play activities. This new project was aimed to capture the children’s imagination and improve outside appearances whilst keeping safety in mind.


 

 

 

Artificial Grass Project Preperation

Artificial Grass Project Preperation
Artificial grass flooring was to be part of a major refurbishment of the school playground. The school received a site drawing from ESP (Education and Special Projects Limited) which shows how two seating areas are to be integrated with the new artificial grass.

Notice how this project highlights the diverse range of applications for artificial grass flooring. ESP installed a traversing wall, magnetic game boards and other curiousities which created a fantastically unique play area.

The Mount School

Playground Safety

Playground Safety
Safety flooring was required for the school playground underneath the climbing frame and play equipment. The exisiting tarmac base was considered unsafe and did not suit the surrounding area. As Good As Grass were asked to provide a more suitable playground flooring solution with safety in mind.

This is one of two play areas that were covered in a soft, two tone 30mm grass.

 

 

 

 

Outdoor Play Flooring

Outdoor Play Flooring
The new outdoor flooring has a padded underlay to avoid injury if a child falls off the playground equipment. The artificial grass looks real and is hard wearing against heavy usage from the children’s play time.

More schools are now opting for artificial grass as a realistic and practical outdoor flooring solution. Free grass samples are available on request so you can try out our turf today.
