Installing Playdale Synthetic Grass

Playdale Synthetic Grass is a superb alternative to the real thing that gives you an advanced technical performance that looks, feels and plays like real grass.

This playground was recently installed at Lindale C E Primary School and needed some Playdale Synthetic Grass underneath a Jukebox Plus climbing frame.

Take a look at the photographs below that shows how we install synthetic grass to create an attractive and safe playground that children will love.

Sand provides the base layer for the surfacing and is rolled out to compact the area.
