A new playground installation or even just a renovation of your existing play areas offer play spaces that act as a vital part of every day life, getting active and outdoors in the fresh air is important not only for children health, it’s also great for their minds and concentration levels, especially children with special educational needs who may need a safe play space. School funding for Artificial Grass could be for you.
Regardless of age or location all children deserve a safe space to play that is low maintenance and weather resistant meaning it dries quicker after rain and less likely to freeze and become slippery in colder climates.

It's costly but choose a professional experienced company

We know these areas are costly and often there is not enough left in the budget to warranty a new playground for most schools and nurseries. Equipment and apparatus is also not cheap and quality matters when it comes to safety. Only certified equipment that has been safety tested and of course professional experienced playground installers are recommended.
