Manor Green Play Area Presentation

A few small outdoor beds are an excellent option for teaching children about nature. Non-toxic plants can be sown for children to care for on their own. The “green classroom” concept is a proven practice for teaching little ones environmental awareness and letting them interact with plants.

Playground Plants

Children should play in natural surroundings as often as possible. A green environment not only radiates friendliness and cheerfulness but also offers the little ones the opportunity to experience nature. Discover nature with all your senses is the motto. It can happen that leaves and berries end up in children’s hands, and from there, it’s not far to their mouths. It is, therefore, all the more important that only non-toxic plants for children are found on playgrounds. Greenery on the playground has important advantages • Sun protection • Sound insulation • Fencing Non-toxic plants for children: • Trees • Shrubs • Wildflowers • Flowers for planting and sowing Sound insulation The larger the plants, the more leaves. And the denser the leaves, the better the plants protect against noise. This is especially beneficial if the playground area borders a road. The noise of cars is thus effectively sealed off from the play area, making the playground a more relaxing area. Conversely, however, the planting also muffles the noise of children playing, which can be especially helpful in residential areas.
