A national school ground survey found that after improvements were made to school grounds, most schools saw improvements in learning and behaviour. Children require stimulation both inside and outside the classroom. In schools, children will spend most of their time outside the classroom in sports fields. Exercise is an integral part of development as it provides the children with a physical and emotional outlet.
GARDARICA believes that we don’t have to compromise safety for fitness. Investing a little into your outdoor environment can increase the safety of children and bring several advantages to the school’s climate.
Because of the important part sports fields play in the development of children, we often overlook all the dangers they can present depending on the weather. Playing on a wet or muddy field can increase likelihood of injury and will cause lasting damage to the field’s soil structure.
We use drainage systems in our fields in order to prevent excessive moisture. This system is then used to replenish the water supplies of the landscape when needed. In a short time, you will develop a perfectly even lawn that has incredible durability. The fields will also regulate the temperature surrounding school buildings, creating a better atmosphere for children.
