Like playgrounds, artificial turf is designed with active kids in mind, which makes synthetic grass great for schools.
High-quality synthetic grass is not only incredibly durable, non-toxic, free from heavy metals and useable all year round, it is also hugely versatile.
Nowadays, school playgrounds are designed for multiple uses: common areas turn into multi-purpose sports courts and sports fields are used for athletic carnivals and all manner of team sports.
Where natural turf and concrete were once the main choices for school grounds, now synthetic grass and artificial turf are being installed in many primary and high schools all over Brisbane to provide maximum versatility.
If you’re looking for a flexible playground solution for your school, here are five reasons why high-quality, synthetic grass is a great option for school environments:
Synthetic grass is free from harmful toxins and heavy metals which makes it safe for kids of all ages. And when professionally installed using high-quality soft fall and rubber surfacing solutions, artificial turf is safer than other more conventional playground surfaces.
It makes sense that every school playground surface should be sturdy, hard-wearing and long-lasting. But there are few products and materials in the market that can deliver.
Australian made synthetic grass is designed and manufactured to withstand high-traffic use and extreme weather conditions. While usual wear and tear does happen, damage can be easily repaired, like mending carpet.
To keep it lasting even longer, an annual brush, groom and refill to keep the grass blades upright can be affordably done by your local synthetic grass specialist.
One of the best advantages of synthetic grass is that it looks good all year round. No matter the weather or the area, artificial turf guarantees you’ll have a visually appealing, functional grassed area with no weeds, worn spots or brown, dead patches. Beautifying and tidying your school grounds creates a great space for teachers and kids alike, but also for the broader community.
Synthetic grass is a long-term investment that not only transforms unused spaces into practical and versatile areas that can be used all year round, it also saves on water and maintenance costs throughout the year.
As mentioned before, you can prolong the lifetime of your investment by calling on your local synthetic grass specialists for an annual brush, groom and refill to keep the grass blades upright.
When it comes to range and flexibility, few schools can go passed synthetic grass. Whether you’re looking to transform a hard surface into a safe play area, beautify an area where natural grass never grows or add colour to a practical and educational space, there is an artificial turf product suitable for every need and application.
