Why Artificial Grass is Ideal for Nurseries?

The popularity and awareness of artificial grass in schools and nurseries is continually increasing. The reasons are simple; it delivers a cushioned and stimulating surface for children, with the appearance and sensation of natural grass, without the associated maintenance and limitations.

Artificial grass can be employed both outside and indoors to produce a hard-wearing surface that can be used all-year-round. Its resourcefulness permits it to be used inside to create a space for playtime or for ‘carpet time’.

We have highlighted below 5 reasons why we have confidence in artificial grass and believe that it is the way forward for nurseries.

Why Artificial Grass is Ideal for Nurseries?

Promotes Sensory Development in Children

Whether it is used for a sensory garden aimed at hypersensitive children or intended for overall outdoor play, artificial grass assists in habituation to the look, feel and texture of natural grass, short of the related dirt and mud. Weather-permitting, children can play barefoot under supervision to further desensitise them.

Versatile product can be used indoors and outdoors

Artificial grass is an adaptable product that can be valuable to schools and nurseries, owing to being easily employed indoors and outdoors. Outside it can be utilised to transform the playground into a low maintenance, all weather surface. When used for MUGAs and sport pitches, artificial grass offers durability and requires less up-keep irrespective of the recurrent use; particularly because wear and tear can increase the chances of accidents. At CAG we offer high quality artificial grass products, which come with a 10-year manufacturers warranty and use expert installers to further compliment its hard -wearing durable qualities.

When used indoors artificial grass can deliver and visually pleasing and safe carpeting for imaginative play.

Safe atmosphere for play

Artificial grass can be one of the safest surfaces for children to play on.  At CAG we prioritise safety. We offer distinct shock pad layers which can be fitted with the artificial grass to deliver further impact absorbing qualities, making it considerably safer for children to play on. Similarly, when used on its own, artificial grass offers grip to prevent trips and falls throughout play.

All Weather Surface

At CAG we recognise the importance of outdoor play and the connected benefits to the physical and emotional development in children. Having said that, often the unpredictable British weather means that break times and outdoor play is cut short. Frequently, outdoor sessions need to be relocated and rescheduled. Artificial grass provides an alternative solution, unlike natural grass which can take days to dry out after substantial rain and occasionally remains moist and slippery, artificial grass is quick to dry and no muddy footprints and puddles!

Aesthetically Pleasing and Low Maintenance

Artificial grass offers an all year-round vibrant green look, which is visually stimulating for both teachers and pupils. Unlike natural grass it is easy to look after and reduces the time and cost associated with cleaning and mud trailing indoors.
