See What We Did to This Playground Surface at St Mary’s Henley Primary School

17th October 2018

So many schools are now turning to more innovative ways to add colour, enhance safety and encourage further learning by changing their outdoor facilities. Traditional tarmac surfaces have been around for hundreds of years and it is now becoming quite a ‘thing of the past’.

So what are we all switching to?

St Mary’s School in Henley where we previously completed an EPIC playground surface in 2016, now the school want to further their exploration of artificial grass by transforming this outdoor crumbly tarmac area into something so much more.
