Castle Hill Primary wanted to soften up their tarmac playground without removing the existing surfacing. Trulawn was the perfect solution – much softer tarmac playground grass makeover which can easily be laid on top!
After several meetings involving the County Council, the school settled on an installation of Trulawn Luxury across the whole tarmac playground grass makeover. This making a total installation area of 1156sqm. Trulawn Luxury is a wonderfully durable grass that is ideal for withstanding a lot of activity.
To improve the feel underneath the grass we’ve also installed a layer of 25mm shock pad. When laying onto a hard surface with a shock pad we always dress the carpet with kiln dried silica sand to weigh the carpet down. Large expansive areas like this don’t often have much cover so adding the sand also helps keep the grass cool, and reduces the chance of static building up.
