Greyfriars Pre-school in Ringwood raised £10,000 through a combination of lottery funding and fundraising events organised in conjunction with parents in order to transform their outdoor play surface into mud free preschool grass.
The area had long been a frustration for staff and parents alike as the youngsters would walk mud into the school and of course the parents had to deal with this as well.
The installation of artificial turf into the play area has made a huge difference to everyone who had previously had to play on wooden bark chips.
The parents had considered changing the bark but claimed it was expensive and that the children get muddy and wet.
The artificial grass makes the landscape much safer and allows the children to play outdoors in all weathers.
Focused pre-school parents and members of staff helped raise £4,800, which has been topped up by a £5,000 lottery fund.
Greyfriars Pre-school manager Sue Leather said: “The difference the lawn has made is huge. The children can now play safely in all weathers. If they take a tumble it won’t hurt them and it looks like the Teletubbies’ lawn, with its hills and vibrant grass.
“We are so pleased and it wouldn’t have been possible without our fundraisers, who have done a brilliant job.”
Sue added: “Trulawn were absolutely brilliant. I think our area was a tough one because of the hills, which we were keen to keep. The team worked extremely very hard and the results are first class.”
Mum Jo Battisby said: “The lawn is superb. You can see the kids really love it and it means they can play ball games and skip without kicking up the bark. “The lawn is now clean, neat and tidy and looks great.”

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.
