Having considered the canopy options that were available, Sprouts Play Barn decided upon two shade sails from the Maxima range of fabric canopies. The sails covered 12m x 6m. The structure was made up of two shade sails on six uprights. The bright yellow shade cloth looks amazing against the colourful play area and for added safety they included post pads, also in yellow just to complete the sunny picture.
Wow! What a wonderful space they have created. The children can play in an engaging, large, open space which has plenty of shade to protect their young, delicate skin. Another magical place for the children to enjoy on their visit to Sprouts Play Barn, no wonder there are so many visitors. With this fabulous covered outdoor space, it is hard to know where the children will choose to play, they are spoilt for choice.

The garden areas have lots of activities for the children including sand and water play and space for reading and stories. It was lacking shade and shelter though, so this space was only available to the children when it was dry and not too sunny. This seemed like a waste and so the addition of a UV and waterproof canopy was the perfect solution.
The canopy chosen came from our Maxima range. It comprised a Yellow shade sail, installed on 5 posts which were Signal Green (RAL 6032). The resulting structure is large, bright, water and UV proof and creates a wonderful new area for the children. Rain will no longer stop play and there is no need to limit outdoor time on the hottest days either.
The result is a wonderful, functional outdoor area for the children at NOA’s Ark, which can be enjoyed all year round. The fabric is bright and engaging and complements the new nursery building perfectly. The quality of the products means that the canopy will be enjoyed for many years to come. There are many designs, shapes and sizes of school canopies, from fabric ones to steel and polycarbonate structures from our Motiva range.

One more shaded area was required to complete the playground and A&S Landscape was pleased to help out. The school sought a large canopy with a straight roof made from coloured polycarbonate. The Linear canopy from our Motiva range was the perfect solution. Installed at 16m x 5m the area has created a large area of shade and shelter for the children. The Yellow (RAL 1003) steelwork looks bright against the coloured roof. All gutters and downpipes were also in matching yellow and the whole area looks vibrant and modern.
With such a large space the options really are endless; drama performances, outside lessons, reading corner, playtimes, lunchtimes, storytimes. The sunshine casts a colourful glow on to the playground on warmer days of the year and this is sure to delight the children. What nicer than to sit in the warmth, protected from the UV rays in a colourful area of your playground, something else that will give them fond memories of their time at St Edburg’s C of E School.

Outdoor dining areas offer social space with access to natural light and fresh air, both of which have been proven to increase engagement and memory capacity. And if you’re a school with the kind of high standards and ambition of Gillotts School in Oxford, you’re going to want to do this right.
One of the top schools in the country, Gillotts performs incredibly well and encourages their students to be innovative and excited about all that they do.
A&S Landscape installed one Motiva Duo™ and one Motiva Mono™ canopy in a white steelwork with opal roofing, which means Gillotts students stay dry whilst eating as well as get protection from direct sunlight. The finished outdoor dining shelters offer year-round covered dining as well as being a smart and modern addition to a beautiful campus, set in over 32 acres of land. Gillotts set high standards with everything they do, and we were delighted to exceed those standards with this addition to campus.
