The children at Elvetham Heath children’s nursery in Fleet, Hampshire now have a safe, soft play area that can be used all year round thanks to the installation of an artificial lawn by local supplier Trulawn .
The ground on which housing was built on the Heath has not proved too successful for those with the ambition of maintaining a great looking natural grass lawn.
It was for the very same reason that the nursery chose to install the astro turf type solution. Sherralyn Egan the manager at the Elvetham Heath nursery said: “There is a national government initiative called Early Years which encourages nurseries such as ours to create a space where toddlers can have a safe and stimulating area in which to play and learn outdoors.
Sherralyn added “The grass simply did not grow effectively in our play area and the surface had become drab and muddy. The installation of the artificial grass surface means the children can have access to the garden all year round and it meets with the additional government initiative called “Free flow” – this encourages our youngsters to be able to interact with each other and move freely throughout the interior and exterior of the nursery”.
