There are many challenges for landscapers and property owners in the Bay Area, from hilly terrain to unpredictable weather. That’s why an increasing number of commercial properties are now converting to artificial turf for their landscaping needs.
After onelawn® installed 2,516 square feet of synthetic turf at LePort Montessori School in San Francisco as a playground remodel that provided their students with a safe and beautiful play area while saving the school time and money on maintenance.
onelawn knew that any play area would have to be installed with a durable turf solution. We incorporated IPEMA-certified underlayment and antimicrobial infill along with a permeable backing to make the playground as safe as possible for the children and low-maintenance for the school staff.
The LePort School provided a unique challenge by having a steep mound in the center of the play area that needed to be accommodated. Originally there was sod grass there, being in San Francisco, it’s difficult to get anything to grow. Re-sodding repeatedly became very expensive.
To maintain the safety for the kids, a one-inch layer of poured in place rubber was troweled over the mound before installing the durable and kid-friendly turf. With careful planning and the expertise of onelawn’s installation team LePort School has a play area that will provide hours, days, weeks and years of enjoyment.
