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.
