Product Details

ESP have a vast range of artificial grass available for schools who are looking to transform existing muddy grassed areas into a surface that can be used all year round for fun and active play. School playgrounds need to be used all year round.  When using outdoor play equipment in winter, it can create bare patches and muddy sections.  This is a great playground flooring solution that is hard wearing and looks great, even in winter.

Artificial grass is an ideal solution for schools and nurseries that require hard wearing surfaces that are low maintenance and provide children with safe areas to play.

It can be installed in areas that are normally hard to maintain such as a shady area where grass struggles to grow or a high traffic path that gets muddy. ESP can tailor fake grass to intricate shapes and one of our expert teams will install the grass so that it fits perfectly in your space.

This fantastic surface is low maintenance and has a long lifespan. It provides an excellent playground surface for little ones to crawl over in nursery schools. Latest technology provides a soft texture and natural feel. Schools often choose artificial grass, as it can be installed over a hard surface to create a softer and more attractive outdoor space. School-age children can enjoy artificial grass as a space for their lunchtime football games with friends, find a quiet corner to enjoy a book or chat with friends and the clean, quick-dry surface is perfect for outdoor lessons. Synthetic grass doesn’t get muddy, therefore is is the perfect choice as a surface to go under outdoor play equipment. There’ll be no more muddy shoes in the classroom and parents will be happy with the lack of grass stains on their children’s school uniform. If artificial grass is to be used under playground equipment, we have a specific range that will offer the perfect solution having been certified for a critical fall height up to 3 metres.

Synthetic turf provides a safe, green space for all year round play. It can transform a tired space into an exciting area that the children will enjoy for many years to come.

Problems can arise where existing issues such as drainage are present as additional ground preparatory works may be required. You are required to debrief us on the performance of the area on topics such as drainage, subsidence, and if there are any known service lines running underground as we will be unable to fully assess all of these during our site visit.

Based on the information you provide us about the area for development, we will recommend, or create, a bespoke installation specification to ensure you get the best possible installation result, these must be agreed before the order and installation processes commence. Any additional works outside of the standard installation specifications shown below, such as for drainage, would be at an additional cost.
