Synthetic Grass Specifications

I will first and foremost explain what the rates will be based on because the specification I am using for the prices on the page is slightly different to a garden installation and also a sports pitch installation. Here is the specification we would recommend for artificial turf into a school play area:

  • Sub Base – we would recommend PCC edges, stone sub base with enough structural strength to allow heavy traffic and possibly vehicle to drive over it, geotextile membrane and sufficient drainage
  • Shockpad – a shockpad would be needed to cushion the fall of the children especially when there is play equipment because it will need to meet the CFH (critical fall height)
  • Surfacing – we'd recommend a premium quality artificial turf because will need to be able to accept heavy use and look / feel great underfoot

Based on these pointers above then this is recommended but obviously specifications and designs can be tailored to suit budgets and requirements on a job by job basis.

Schools Sports Pitches

We may install schools sports pitches for a number of sports. Since we are experts in the sport surfacing industry we can alter designs and specifications to meet your needs and requirements. All of our surfaces are porous, which means that water can drain through easily preventing flooding and waterlogging. This is great for schools, as the pupils can make use of the facility in any weather conditions. Schools sports pitches are popular across the UK and it is recommended to have synthetic turf installed instead of natural turf due to the permeable properties and limited maintenance needed.
