Primary School In Hackney Has Environmentally Friendly Artificial Grass Playground Installed
Artificial grass provides an environmentally friendly playground surface in Nightingale Primary School , Hackney.
Leading school surface supplier SSP transformed the muddy play and seating area with EcoSol artificial grass surface. We believe Ecosol to be the artificial grass with the greenest credentials of any artificial grass.
Nightingale Primary School playground had a natural turf area surrounding pavements and a rubber play mat area. The natural turf became very muddy in the rain and very hard in the sun. The area was unsuitable for more rubber mats as the area had many curves and different shapes. Artificial grass due to it versatility is ideal for awkwardly shaped play area’.
The natural turf was removed and a compacted limestone base was installed , providing increased drainage and a leveller surface . Proplay impact matting was then laid over the base. Proplay impact matting are also produced with a recycled foam content, which provide a critical fall height and also aid drainage of rainwater. The proplay was then topped with Ecosol artificial grass.
