When it comes down to surfacing schools, public playgrounds and play areas the top consideration is always safety first. Often play areas are required to fit a specific criteria and meet health and safety regulations. With DOgrass you can create a captivating and safe, all-weather environment using our artificial grass.
When it rains (which is more often than not in the UK!) playing fields and outdoor areas often become ‘no-go’ zones for children due to slippery play equipment and muddy, waterlogged fields; the solution? Artificial grass. Artificial grass for children’s play areas, allow the space to be used safely all year round, with there being no mud, no water and no slip hazard.
When it comes to artificial grass for play areas the most obvious benefit to having the product in a school or playground is that it will save you on maintenance costs, providing an advantage over real turf. Once the artificial grass has been installed in the play area there is little maintenance and it doesn’t require any special equipment to keep it looking fresh.
Some of the things that you will save on from installing artificial grass over real grass are:
Cost of hiring a contractor to mow the grass
Cost of materials to power and maintain the required equipment such as a lawnmower or edge trimmer
Cost of lawn care products/treatments such as weedkiller, fertiliser and pesticides
Cost of paying staff to maintain the grounds
Better for Allergies
The leading cause of allergies in the UK is grass. Mowing the lawn releases pollen into the air which is a trigger for hayfever. By using artificial grass for children’s play areas there will be a reduced chance of pollen in the air for children to breathe in, reducing the effects of hayfever.
