Synthetic solution for school's turf troubles

Three hundred square metres of artificial grass has been installed on the playground at Ashford Oaks Primary School in Kent in a bid to stop children walking mud through the school.

Installed by Sow Green, the synthetic surface will ensure children have access to their new play facilities throughout the year.

Ashford Oaks site manager Terry Nettleship said:  ""Our pupils and teachers are all delighted with their new playground.  The whole project has added to the safety of the children’s play and also means that the playground can be open all year. There is no mud brought into the school during the wetter times and it’s certainly been a success."
