Islington School Playground - Design and Construction

Project Cost : £55,000 - Construction Time : 4+ weeks - More Photos of this Playground >

Lush Landscapes have considerable experience in the design, installation and construction of major projects for both schools and local councils. We were tasked with the design and construction of a Key Stage 1 & 2 playground for an Islington Junior School.

Construction time was a little over one month and the project was completed on time and on budget. Recycling and sustainability were key concerns to the project .


Design and construction of the entire playground involved

  • Site clearance, removal of trees, vegetation and shrubs
  • Removal of old playground features
  • Hard and soft landscaping
  • All waste products were recycled

The children were asked what they would like to see in their new playground and the general consensus of opinion was exotic animals. As a result, snakes, dragons and crocodiles were all incorporated into the design.

The design also included a water feature and rather a large boat. Railway sleepers were used to construct raised planters which double as seating areas. These raised planters contained various types of plants creating vegetable gardens and a scientific garden.

Good use of the sleepers was also made in the construction of retaining walls. The retaining walls enabled us to build raised paths and create a playground on many different levels.

The school had a very limited budget which did not include any planting. However, we were able to source hundreds of plants FREE OF CHARGE, some of which we donated by our suppliers.

The overall result was an extremely durable, low maintenance playground that will happily survive years of abuse by kids and teachers alike.
