Safety First

At Lion Lawns, we know that safety always comes first. All of our products are installed by NVQ installers, and come with various safety options such as shock absorbency pads. Lion Lawns is the domestic partner company of Synthetic Turf Management, which specialises in the design and installation of sensory gardens and safe plan areas for SEN schools across the UK.

Some synthetic turf technicalities

When choosing which synthetic turf product is best for your play area or sensory garden, it's important to consider the different qualities that each surface has. Pile height is a key factor, as this can affect how the surface performs in terms of wheel chair use. We recommend a short pile product, as they are less slippery and easier to clean.

Ultimately, play areas for domestic gardens need to blend into the natural surrounding whilst having the durability to withstand the heavy wear from children and pets. That's why we're here to guide you in your sensory garden development; it's our job to make sure you get the best out of the space you have.

When you opt for an artificial grass sensory garden, you say goodbye to the messes of mud and dirt, and say hello to a safe, clean and fun environment that is suitable for children of all ages.
