Darlington Primary School Playground


This primary school in Darlington, North East England, approached us in the Autumn 2017 wanting to completely transform the look of their nursery playground surface.

A nursery playground surface should always be properly thought out, well planned, designed and executed to the highest level. Why? Because although all surfaces need quality assurances when it comes to safety, at nursery age, falls, slips and trips tend to be much more common. A product which is durable and soft should be considered.

The Specification:


Using existing tarmac base this was an overlay install meaning the turf is fitted directly onto the existing surface (the base was sufficient enough to provide good draining)


5mm Rubber Shock Pad


Education and Play in Colour


Sand infill

270 square metres


Phonics frog, number and alphabet colourful markings (Most of the artificial turf designs are made up first and then transported to site, this saves time and inconvenience for our clients as we can complete the install in a shorter time period)


Predominantly green surface


Darlington, County Durham

This install was particularly a very popular one at STM. The phonics frog was something the team had never done before, and the finished design looked fantastic. We will be using this for future installs as we think it is a fun way in which learning can be transferred outdoors.
