Hertfordshire-based Dayco Artificial Grass looks at schools and businesses in Watford, and how fake turf is increasing in popularity in the county as more householders and company directors see the benefits.
When you think of Watford, one of the first things that spring to mind is its football club, supported by singer, and former club chairman, Elton John. However, there’s much more to this Hertfordshire town than its famous sports ground…it is also the headquarters of a number of well-known national companies and organisations, and has a long history in education.
Here, we give a brief run-down on schools and businesses in Watford and if you are a company director, or local authority provider, how artificial grass can cut costs and improve the image of your organisation.
Artificial Grass for Businesses in Watford
Less than 20 miles from the centre of London, and regarded as a regional hub for the northern home counties, Watford is an excellent place to set up business. As a result, several high profile firms have their headquarters in the area. These include national and international companies such as the Camelot Group, J D Wetherspoon, Taylor Woodrow, Mothercare and TK Maxx.
If you have a business in Watford you will know the importance of image and branding to appeal to clients. For firms that have an outdoor garden, courtyard, balcony area or roof terrace, one of the ways to revamp this space is by installing synthetic grass. It gives you more flexibility as you can use this area for marketing purposes, staff breaks, team building, or (depending on your organisation) bring in more revenue by renting it out for special events.
Synthetic turf also evokes a professional image to clients as the grass will maintain its condition all year round without any further upkeep. So your business will look sleek and organised at all times, which in turn has a positive effect on staff. At Dayco, our team can work with you to design and install the perfect lawn that will create an excellent impression for customers.
Another benefit of fake grass is that it helps reduce outgoings. If you have a large outdoor space, you don’t have to employ a team of gardeners to keep it pristine. Instead, your grass will keep its original condition all 12 months of the year.
Artificial Grass for Schools in Watford
Watford’s educational history dates back to the Tudor period. There is a record of headmaster called George Redhead in 1595, and later, in the 1600’s, a free school was established which consisted of one room that spanned across two houses.
Nowadays, Watford has a range of schools from state-run non-selective co-educational schools to grammar schools, technological, independent, religious schools and colleges of further education. It is also home to the lowest – and highest – scoring state schools in the county.
Dayco artificial grass has carried out several installations of artificial grass for schools in Hertfordshire including pre-schools, nurseries, primary, secondary and further educational establishments.
Our fake turf is extremely high quality, so it can withstand heavy footfall, and is popular in children’s playground areas for the following reasons:
- It is cleaner
- It provides a soft surface,
- It doesn’t need any upkeep, and
- It provides sufficient drainage, even in the heaviest of downpours.
It is also ideal for creating multi-purpose sports fields in schools because it eliminates any need for maintenance. Installing synthetic turf in educational establishments presents an excellent image for the school on sports days, during home matches, and in school brochures or websites. Pristine pitches helps children maintain their enthusiasm for sports, and gives pupils the chance to excel in all aspects of school life.
