MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR OPEN SPACE…
If your school or nursery has natural grass areas you will know the problems associated with them… the noise and hassle of mowing in the spring and summer, and the mud and mess in the winter!
Well, help is at hand. SowGreen® artificial grass is perfect for those who want the natural look of grass, but without the problems. Imagine being able to let the children use your outdoor space all year round, with no mud or mess being brought back into the classroom….
Achieving a natural look
Sowgreen® artificial grass is designed to look like real grass in every way. In fact it has such a natural look that it can even be laid up to existing natural grass areas.
This makes Sowgreen ® very versatile and clients can choose to replace all their natural grass or just install Sowgreen ® in high wear areas or pathways, without detracting from the natural appearance.
Sowgreen ® is produced under strict guidelines and comes with an 8 year manufacturers guarantee. It is constructed from a blend of 3 duo tonal yarns (one darker and one lighter) which ensures Sowgreen ® looks good all year round.
The non-abrasive polyethylene yarn is soft yet still hard wearing making it child friendly, perfect for school situations.
The bladed construction means Sowgreen ® is easy to maintain, which was a fundamental objective in the design and research of the product. This design also involves part filling Sowgreen ® with sand (not visible after installation) which helps to protect the base and acts as a ballast keeiping the carpet in place. This allows Sowgreen® to be installed on slopes and naturally contour surfaces. It also means it is able to withstand the day to day rigours of a school environment!
Sowgreen® is completley free draining and the sand infill actually helps things dry out even quicker, so the children can get back to enjoying their new play area even sooner
Sowgreen ® is making playtime fun again for both the children and the teachers with no more mud or mess just happy smiling kids.

Nationwide Coverage by in-house staff.
Sowgreen® was designed to be very easy to fit and therefore minimise any disruption caused during installation.
The existing natural grass is removed and the base prepared using sharp sand/aggregate dependant on the consolidation and drainage of the existing area. This is then leveled and compacted before laying the Sowgree ® carpet.
Sowgreen® can also be laid directly onto existing hard standing areas such as tarmac and concrete which is even easier and quicker.
All spoil and materials are removed from site (unless otherwise agreed) and you are left with a new Sowgreen ® area which you can enjoy immediately, with no bedding in period.
All works are carried out in-house by our own fully trained and CRB checked staff. As we do no sub-contract we have complete control of the works from start to finish.
All our installations come with a 12 month workmanship guarantee and 8 year manufacturers warranty.
Ongoing upkeep of Sowgreen ® is very easy. Once installed there is very little you need to do on a day to day basis.
However to keep up the appearance we would recommend from time to time that leafs and other debris are removed from surface which can be done with a normal yard brush or blower.
Should you need to more thoroughly clean the surface due to a spill for example, Sowgreen ® can also be hosed down the area and even use disinfectant if required, which will not harm the carpet
A Cost Effective Solution
As well as the other benefits Sowgreen® offers, it is also a more viable option than alternatives such as wet pour rubber and bark when considering life cycle costs.
Sowgreen ® comes with an 8 year manufacturers warranty but in real terms clients should expect to achieve 10 years life from the surface, which is what we experience in high intensity sporting applications of a similar product. Where activity on the area is more sedate clients could expect to double this anywhere upto and beyond 20 years. With minimal maintenance costs this gives a massive return on investment.
This is one of the main reasons why so many schools, nurseries and local authorities have all decided to choose Sowgreen ® for their playground surfacing solution.
The initial supply and installation cost will vary dependant on a number of factors such as access, terrain, location and size of the project.
As a general guide Sowgreen® can be supplied and installed from as little as £30+vat per square meter.
The most accurate way is to arrange a no obligation site survey. Our representative will measure the area and answer any questions you may have.
