School landscape design services – London, Herts and the Home Counties

A school’s outdoor environment is just as important as its classrooms and buildings. And just as the layout and design of a classroom needs careful planning, so does a school’s outside space.


Ideally, a design for a school outside space needs to be aesthetically pleasing, highly accessible and cater for children of all ages and abilities. It needs to provide challenges and managed risk yet be safe and free of hazards and provide plenty of room for active play alongside stimulating children’s creativity and imagination.


Our range of school playground surfaces helps create an exciting but safe environment in which children can play and learn. We are able to tailor our school playground surfaces for individual requirements, offering schools a wide range of options to cater for their every need. 


Nowadays, schools are increasingly looking to bring the classroom outdoors in new and innovative ways by commissioning special outdoor classrooms using creative seating arrangements, making the most of any available shade and planning zones to facilitate new ways of learning. Our extensive knowledge in creating playground surfaces for schools helps bring their ideas to life.

Ross Solution Projects have extensive experience of working with schools and educational establishments; working with them to transform initial concepts and ideas on paper to safe and inspiring hard and soft landscapes on which children can learn, play and explore.

Case study: Creating a multi-sport surface for a school in Barnet.

Ashmole Academy is an exceptional academy status mixed secondary school in Southgate, London Borough of Barnet. With approximately 1500 students aged from 11 to 19 years old, the school is rated by the government’s school performance comparison service as “Well above average” in performance, one of only 14% of schools in England to achieve this status.

Ross Solution Projects was appointed to carry out a design and build project on the school’s worn-down playground area. This required extensive surfacing with new tarmac, together with sports pitch line marking undertaken with the aim of encouraging as many sports as possible to be enjoyed in the playground area confines.

This time-critical project was carried out in just one week during the summer holidays. Meeting this schedule required efficient planning by our experienced project team, including having to overcome difficult access problems.

A successful project outcome was achieved on schedule and within budget, with four tennis courts, a football pitch, two netball and basketball courts installed and marked out. Ashmole Academy now has a great new outdoor facility, offering its students of all ages a wide range of options for varied and exciting sports activities.

If your school requires landscaping services - from repainting the lines on the netball court to completely redesigning and resurfacing the entire outdoor area - Ross Solution Projects can help. Please contact us to arrange your free consultation.
