Synthetic grass has long surpassed use at athletic centres alone. Today, they are providing benefits for residential, commercial and industrial properties. The latest to get on board the synthetic grass switch are schools. This is because the ongoing benefits of synthetic grass primarily revolve around a cost-effective and low-maintenance option as compared to traditional grass.

Read on to find out why synthetic turf is a great option for schools and their playgrounds.

Why Choose Synthetic Grass

Sydney is susceptible to unpredictable weather conditions, and can change from one moment to the next. Furthermore, our climate varies greatly between the warm and cold months of the year. It is therefore essential to supply high quality artificial grass to Sydney’s schools that can sustain these varying conditions.


It’s a school, and therefore there are plenty of kids running around. This means plenty of foot traffic, and whilst traditional grass is susceptible to the wear of time and use, synthetic grass remains the same year-round. Furthermore, when the weather takes a turn and rain gets heavy, you don’t have to worry about kids falling or tripping in hazardous puddles.

Low Maintenance

In normal conditions, schools require a constant gardener to tend to the grass. However, this creates larger costs in the form of machines and ages for taking care of the grass. Synthetic grass is able to last for 15-20 years without the need for maintenance, thus alleviating the cost of upkeep.

Terrain for All Seasons

Sports and outdoor activities are essential for schools. In the case of rain, there is a high chance that your school’s lawn will become muddy and cause the children to avoid playing altogether. If you have synthetic grass installed at your school, you don’t have to worry about post-rain outdoor classes not going ahead.

Reduces Allergy Risk

Allergies are common amongst young children. This can be exacerbated if the child is playing amongst a natural grass area. Installing artificial grass reduces the risk of pollen causing allergic reactions amongst affected children.
