A Gillingham-based school needed a quick and durable solution as their natural grass areas around the school were getting too muddy and worn with high footfall from the students. 

Consequently, we installed a 580m long path so that a one-way system could be created around the school, to help with their covid measures. Previously, students were just walking on the natural grass; however, the grass couldn’t cope. In addition to this, the school was becoming messy from all the mud and dust during the summer.

The Problem

Once the schools re-opened after the COVID-19 lockdown, a one-way system needed to be implemented so that pupils could stay within their bubbles and promote sufficient social distancing. 

With lots of natural lawn and playground areas surrounding the school, the extra footfall quickly destroyed the grass. This resulted in lots of mud, mess, and dust on the pupils' footwear and within the school.

The school was also on a very tight budget as they had not factored in the expenditure for a path around the school but needed an affordable solution quickly.

The Solution

We installed a 580m long path around the edge of the school, using our Pedigree Lawn for their one-way system. 

Our ex-Crufts Pedigree Lawn is our cheapest product but provides amazing durability and very low maintenance.

The Method

We performed our standard installation process, involving the removal of the turf, a blinding layer of crushed granite, geotextile, and then the fitting of the grass on top. As well as this, kiln dried sand infill was laid, and the lawn was secured with 6-inch steel pins along the edges.

The Result

The finished result is a low-maintenance path around the school for pupils to use without the mud and mess that comes alongside natural grass. All it will require is a quick brush or blow with a leaf blower every now and then to clear debris. 

The project was completed as cheaply as possible to be within the schools’ limited budget.
