Artificial Grass Playgrounds
Artificial grass is a natural choice for playground surfacing, providing a soft safe surface for free play. SSP has transformed thousands of playgrounds in the past twenty years to become a leading supplier and installer of schools artificial grass playgrounds.
Initially the only available artificial grass was a 24mm single colour and straight turf polypropylene grass designed for sports. The development of mixed colours and fibre shapes led to an expansion of available artificial grasses suitable for school playgrounds.
Why use artificial grass?
Artificial grass solves many of the problems of natural turf. Freshly cut lawn smells and looks fantastic in the summer. It does need to be mown regularly and there are some situations where grass simply won’t grow (under trees and shrubs). Artificial lawns are a modern solution to the age old problem of muddy ‘grassed’ areas particularly in areas where grass would never grow. It is a soft and safe solution to many surfacing problems.
Contemporary yarns and production methods mean that artificial grass is now soft to the touch. It is no longer the rough ‘brillo pad’ type surface many of us remember playing sports on. SSP offer a full range of grasses from soft leisure grass to next generation 4G Sports grasses. Various colours and shapes can now be effectively implemented to act as teaching aids and hold increased appeal for the children using them.
