Built in the UK using sustainably sourced timber our planters and natural playground equipment is extremely durable and can be used as part of an outdoor learning area or playscape.
Our range of large chunky planters for schools and playgrounds provide children with their own garden space to grow plants, vegetables and learn about nature. You can use a combination of shapes and sizes alongside seating to define your own garden area.
Having a garden for children on the school playground will encourage them to learn outdoors and develop their love of nature. A careful selection of plants can encourage the senses. Plants and nature help children to develop communication and language skills as they describe the sights and smells of the flowers and plants.
Planters on the school playground increase opportunities and encourage engagement with the natural world whilst providing a sensory interest through growing plants. Growing plants provide a fun and productive challenge for children and allow them to develop skills and gain responsibility as they care for and understand how to look after a plant. Successfully growing plants and vegetables build self-confidence and physical development skills.
Planting flowers and plants which attract insects such as butterflies and ladybirds provides children with the opportunity to learn more about nature and to gain an understanding of the world. Our range includes a vegetable planter which has four individual sections that enable children to grow a range of vegetables engaging them in a stimulating and healthy activity. It encourages children to grow their own food and is ideal for teaching about where food comes from and nutrition.
Our growing, planting and nature range also includes a variety of products to develop the ideal garden and sensory area including totem poles. Our willow dome provides a fun way for children to see how nature develops. As it is fast growing it will have an established look in a short space of time and they can then be used as an effective shelter or as a bird watching hide.
