Working alongside Lanyon Bowdler Solicitors and Mike Russel Landscaping, we designed and installed a colourful safe play area for the school. The SEN school is attended by pupils that are aged between 3 and 19 and that have a range of learning difficulties, from moderate to profound. Synthetic Turf Management was thrilled to be able to help create a space for these pupils that is fun, safe, and encourages learning.
At Synthetic Turf Management, we provide a range of artificial grass products that are suitable for a comprehensive list of purposes. We pride ourselves on designing unique playground surfaces for every school we work with. Using coloured artificial grass as a playground surface is a fantastic way of creating an interactive space for children. That’s why we went all out when working on this project and created a wonderful underwater world full of colourful sea life.
The school promotes play and outdoor learning, so the artificial grass playground surface we designed was the perfect fit for them. The project started out with some initial sketching; we really wanted to capture a bright and playful atmosphere, and also pin down a definite theme. Once we had decided on the “Sea World” idea, we started to have fun in creating all the different stencils and design templates that we would need to take us to the next step.
As the artificial grass was produced, we were thrilled to see the playground surface take shape. Brightly coloured fish, seahorses and star fish sat on a sea-blue background; we were certain that the pupils would be very happy.

“The garden was a winner – maybe not top prize, but we were delighted to be awarded one of Shropshire Horticultural Society’s Gold Medals for our wonderful seaside space working with Synthetic Turf Management & Lanyon Bowdler Solicitors.” – Mike Russel
This was a hugely successful project, and we were incredibly proud to have been a part of it. The school now enjoys the benefits of having a soft artificial turf area that offers much more than a normal playground surface!
At STM, safety always comes first. That’s why we offer various safety enhancing options such as shock absorbency, which helps break the fall for pupils.
