The Grass Isn’t Always Green – School Play Areas

School Play Areas - Pirate Ship


A few weeks ago we mentioned some exciting school projects we’ve been busy with over summer. Well, the photos are in, and we’re delighted with the results of two fantastic sensory and school play areas.

The first project at Singlegate Primary was to extend the existing outdoor area, which includes a sensory garden, and create a large, fun space for the children to play. Bringing the design to┬álife called for our boldest and brightest artificial grass colours…together with some very intricate cutting and splicing to create those pleasing curves.

The second has been named the “Canopy and Problem Solving Garden” by the headteacher at William Morris, and it’s probably the most visually stunning and overall satisfying project we’ve ever worked on.

When we received the plans on paper we knew there were going to be a few head-scratching moments, such was the complexity and scope of works.

These two South London primary schools have experienced a significant turnaround in recent years, both receiving glowing reports in their recent Ofsted inspections. They are excellent examples of what can be achieved under forward-thinking, creative leadership, and in this case where the quality of outdoor learning and play environments is paramount.

We offer a bespoke service for schools, nurseries and playground proprietors, one that is fully scalable to suit all spaces and budgets; whether that’s transforming a small dead or muddy space with a splash of clean green grass, or the design, project management and construction of one of these incredible outdoor classrooms. Do get in touch and we’ll be happy to arrange a meeting to talk you through some options and costs.
