Oakleaf helps transform school garden from a caterpillar into a butterfly

Oakleaf Grounds can now not only look after your grounds maintenance and sports pitch requirements but can fit a surface for those looking for an alternative to grass.

Through client, Galliford Try, two primary schools based in Birmingham were looking for ways to improve their outdoor space and had areas that were unusable.

The team from Oakleaf recommended that artificial grass was the answer as it is durable and hardwearing whilst being low maintenance. In the case of Calshot Primary School, the surface was laid with a shockpad underlay, underneath the grass, to provide a softer feel underfoot and also as a safety aspect. The material is also environmentally friendly as it is made from totally recycled materials and the artificial grass removes the need to mow the grass.

Calshot Primary School, situated close to the northern boundary with Walsall and Sandwell, had an outdoor space which resembled a mudbath and was impractical for any use. The Oakleaf Grounds team came in and cleared away all the dead trees and prepared an open area with a base for laying the surface.

With the underlay in place, the grass was laid down on top and finished with buddleja bushes to surround and encourage butterflies into their new ‘Butterfly Garden’, providing the children with an ideal place to have lessons and learn about nature. The area is now transformed into a multi-use space, available as an outdoor classroom and a safe space for the children to play.

Louise Dugmore, Facilities Manager for Galliford Try said: “We are very pleased with the quality of the workmanship and the finished result, which enables the schools to make use of these areas without worrying about the grass eroding away each year. We would definitely recommend this product in any school environment where traditional turfed areas are regularly being worn away. Oakleaf are contractors you can rely on to meet your requirements and carry out a first class job.”

Wayne Simner, Head Teacher at Calshot Primary School, commented: “Oakleaf recently transformed an area of our school grounds, which is known as the Butterfly Garden. Previously, it was an area of the school which was dated and in need of a 'breath of fresh air'. Oakleaf cleared an overgrown area of bushes, levelled the ground, laid some amazing lush, green artificial grass and planted a range of shrubs to encircle the area. The Butterfly Garden is now transformed and is a pleasure to behold. The children are so keen to spend time in there that we have had to draw up a timetable of usage! Oakleaf were extremely professional during the works and communicated well with the school. I would fully recommend their services to anyone.”

All the work was carried out in-house by the Oakleaf Grounds own staff, working closely with the Galliford Try management team.
