Childcare centres and schools

Synthetic grass for childcare centres and schools is becoming more commonplace in education facilities and learning centres across Brisbane.

Many childcare centres and schools are installing synthetic grass because of the unparalleled advantages:

  • Cost-effective
  • Easy to maintain
  • Weather resistant
  • Fire retardant
  • Durable & long-lasting
  • Safe for kids and pets
  • Versatile for indoor and outdoor use
  • Wide product selection for multiple applications
  • Immaculate and green all year round

But there’s also another benefit of synthetic grass: no nasty allergens.

Lead Childcare Centre in Wooloowin, Brisbane where we installed Clean Cut 35 mm synthetic grass.

Unlike natural grass, synthetic grass doesn’t create or spread grass pollen – Australia’s most common outdoor airborne allergen.

Also, high-quality, Australian-made synthetic grass products don’t contain harmful toxins or require harsh chemicals or fertilizers to keep it looking green and lush.

Given Australia has some of the highest allergy rates in the developed world, it makes sense that synthetic grass is gaining in popularity.

It’s the ideal indoor and outdoor solution for preschoolers and school kids who suffer from allergies like hay fever.

While springtime is commonly thought of as the peak time for allergies, grasses flower at various times of the year in different parts of the country.

As for Brisbane’s peak pollen season, it typically starts in January but can extend out to February and even March – which is a long time for kids to put up with itchy eyes, scratchy throats, runny noses, and incessant sneezing.
