St Edmund Campion RC Primary School wanted to fully embrace the Daily Mile Initiative and improve the health and well-being of their pupils by introducing an Artificial Grass Daily Mile track to their field.
A Daily Mile track is a dedicated area for the children to run or walk around to ensure they get fresh air and exercise every day of the week.
The school chose artificial grass for this project because it is more durable than standard grass so will be able to withstand the high levels of footfall received on a daily basis.
We’ve used Trulawn Multi-Sport for this project, a grass specific for use in an exercise environment. This is different from a domestic grass as it doesn’t have a realistic thatch to look more authentic and keep the blades upright. We’ve added some sand in-fill to the top of the grass to give the blades that extra bit of stability against this constant use.
We love that the the school chose the bold red colour of our Trulawn Multi-Sport to show their commitment to the Daily Mile, offering a path that is fun and easy to follow for all students.
Trulawn, playtime friendly artificial grass, we specialise in supplying and installing artificial grass for schools and child safe surfaces for play areas. We can install a soft shockpad underlay when installing the grass that creates an even safer, cushioned feel to the surface.
Trulawn's artificial grass is a pretty tough product, it’s designed to withstand the rain, sun, wind, hyper children and playful pets.
Artificial grass is made of soft and springy materials, which most animals find is perfect for running and rolling around on all year long! Introduce your family pets to our artificial grass and see how much they enjoy their new playground!
Trulawn grass is covered by our guarantee, but we ensure that our synthetic grass is fully stabilised against UV fading so you have peace of mind for years to come.
Other, lower quality grasses from alternative suppliers may not provide protection against fading from intense sunlight and weathering nor might they provide a guarantee.
Paw prints and muddy boots, the horror! For most homes, when the rain comes (and it comes pretty frequently in the UK!), you can bet that somebody is going to end up walking mud through the house after being in the garden, whether it's children or dogs!
Trulawn’s artificial grass installations make those worries disappear! Rain or shine, keep your schedule and your home mud free!
Artificial grass is essentially maintenance free, obviously, you no longer need to cut your grass. So bin the mower and enjoy the time you would have spent dragging the mower in and out of the shed, emptying the cuttings and walking back and forth by relaxing in your garden with your always perfect looking lawn.
We’re advised constantly to refrain from wasting water on garden use, in high summer with soaring temperatures you don’t want your meticulously manicured lawn to scorch. Trulawn, being so low maintenance means it never needs watering.
With artificial grass there is no need to worry about water drainage, artificial lawns drain water like a regular lawn and even better in some cases. All our grass has built in drainage technology that quickly allows water to pass through the pile and into the ground below.
