As substitute grass suppliers, we have seen a rise in the numbers of nurseries opting for fake grass to provide safe, low maintenance play areas. Hundreds of schools and nurseries up and down the country are reaping the benefits of an attractive, year round outdoor space for toddlers and youngsters. If you run a nursery in Hampstead, Golders Green, Borehamwood or anywhere else in the London and Hertfordshire area and are considering installing fake turf, here are eight benefits of artificial grass:
Sparks Toddlers’ Imaginations
Do you want to transform a tired outdoor space and create an imaginative, out-of-the-ordinary garden? Our team of substitute grass installers will discuss your ideas with you to create the perfect children’s play area. With fake grass you can choose shaped or patterned areas, or even coloured grass to create different zones which will inspire the children during outdoor play.
Encourages Outdoor Play
The government is constantly striving to promote outdoor exercise to aid children’s development and limit obesity. By encouraging children to play outdoors in their early stages it goes a long to supporting healthy lifestyles. Nurseries with year round accessible outdoor spaces have made positive steps to encourage healthy activity in children’s formative years.
To create the perfect lawn requires time and effort, and can be expensive to maintain. As a nursery owner you may feel that all this time and money spent mowing the lawn and re-seeding could be better spent on education. By re-surfacing the garden with fake turf you can create an amazing outdoor space for toddlers that requires virtually no maintenance at all.
It’s a Great Marketing Tool
An attractive outdoor play area is a fantastic advert for your business and will encourage parents to enrol their children in your nursery. Having an appealing outdoor space looks perfect on glossy brochures, websites and advertising material, so it’s well worth the initial outlay. And, it will look good whenever prospective parents are visiting, no matter what time of year. Dayco luxury fake grass not only looks real – but it feels real too, so parents will hardly know the difference!
Is a Safe, Soft Surface
Toddlers crawl, run and tumble, so they need a safe, soft surface to play on to prevent scrapes and bumps, with no hazardous muddy patches that the children could slip on. Fake turf makes an ideal surface to go under play equipment (in comparison to bark or concrete) and. as a result, it gives parents peace of mind that they are leaving their children in a safe environment.
Provides a Clean Surface
As well as being soft, substitute grass also provides a clean surface to play on. On rainy days, the quick-dry self-draining surface means the children won’t trample muddy shoes into the nursery. And, the parents will love the fact that their children will return home without grass stains on their clothing!
Suitable for Shady Areas
In some parts of London, natural grass may be hard to maintain, particularly in built-up areas where the garden doesn’t get enough sunlight which makes the grass difficult to grow. Opting for the artificial variety eliminates unsightly patches and gives the children a lush green lawn to play on all year round.
It is Durable
In nurseries lawned areas are really put through their paces as toddlers run round, crawl and wheel push along toys outside. Dayco artificial grass is extremely durable, so it can withstand heavy footfall – and it’s long lasting too! And it won’t fade over time, as it is UV resistant.
