University of Tennessee Chooses Playground Grass by ForeverLawn for Innovative Rooftop Playground
November 29, 2011 (Albuquerque, NM) -- The University of Tennesee, in Knoxville, Tenn., recently completed a $6 million renovation project on the Lindsey Nelson Baseball Stadium. The renovation plans included the development of a showcase playground, designed in UT orange and white school colors, to be located on the roof of the right field side of the stadium. ForeverLawn of Tennessee was selected as the playground surfacing vendor for the project, and the product chosen for the surface was Playground Grass Discovery, by ForeverLawn.
Playground Grass Discovery was selected to create a safety-rated, infill-free playground that included a large custom orange “Power T” in the center of the Playground Grass that would be visible from the stadium seats. The Power T, coupled with the ForeverLawn infill-free system, were the winning factors for the UT procurement team.
ForeverLawn of Tennessee thanks Ty Allen and Joe Leedie for their valuable support on this project.
