Is Artificial Grass Good for Schools?

As advancements continue to be made with the materials and systems associated with artificial grass, it’s becoming increasingly clear why more and more schools are starting to make the switch.

From saving money on maintenance costs to the avoidance of harsh chemicals, there are a number of reasons why you should consider artificial grass for your school, and we’re going to go through them all right here.

Artificial grass for school.

Save time and money on maintenance

The best thing about artificial grass? It requires little to no maintenance.

Compare this with real turf in school playgrounds which needs to be constantly looked after by staff or dedicated grounds people, both of which take up time and money, and it’s easy to see why artificial grass might be the best option for school playgrounds.

Of course, if you opt for artificial grass to be laid at your school or nursery, you will have to deal with an upfront cost, but the turf will quickly pay for itself over the years. 

Here are just some of the ways that artificial grass can save you money on maintenance:

  • No need for regular mowing
  • No money spent on fuel to power lawn maintenance equipment
  • No money spent on chemicals, such as weed killers, fertilisers or pesticides, to help maintain real turf
  • No money spent on dedicated grounds staff to look after real turf

Use it all year round

If you are a teacher or work at a school, you’ll know there’s nothing like a torrential downpour to whip young children into a frenzy.

As soon as the bell goes, they’ll be out there playing and, before you know it, Glastonbury-esque quagmires will be spread across the field.

Not only does it require time and maintenance to fix, but it also means that many outdoor activities have to be postponed. 

With artificial grass, however, this isn’t the case.

You can use it all year round, regardless of the weather, secure in the knowledge that those using it are safe, mud-free and no damage is being done to the surface.

Brighten up the place

The best thing about artificial grass for schools? You can quickly turn dull and lifeless concrete areas into bright, fun play areas. This is because artificial grass can be laid over any kind of surface, including concrete and tarmac, allowing for green spaces where you otherwise couldn’t. 

It’s also worth mentioning that artificial grass areas are a great deal safer for children to play on than concrete and tarmac, especially if you opt for a shock-absorbent pad to be installed underneath.

No more harsh chemicals

Unlike real turf, artificial grass doesn’t require the use of pesticides, fertilisers or any other harsh chemicals to ensure its longevity, so you won’t have to worry about the effects this might have on young children. It’s also worth noting that artificial grass is kinder to those who have allergies, allowing them to play freely without irritation.
