What is Playground Turf?
Synthetic grass, or artificial grass is mostly seen in athletic fields across the country, but is also used in playgrounds, indoor play areas and dog parks. In general, synthetic turf is made of artificial grass blades and rubber or sand infill materials to create the appearance of real grass, but with much better impact attenuation. Synthetic turf is easy to maintain, and you do not need to worry about objects getting lost in the “grass.” Synthetic turf is also an accessible playground surface material.
Why Artificial Grass for your Playground
Artificial turf is a wise investment for anyone looking to add a safe, accessible, durable playground surface that lasts for years. The initial investment in the correct product is more than made up for with its lack of maintenance and upkeep.
No matter what the climate or terrain is around the playground, artificial turf is an excellent design choice that remains dry and safe throughout the year.
Benefits of Playground Turf
There are four primary advantages in choosing artificial turf, instead of natural grass:
1. Durability: Warranty on our artificial turf is 10 years, giving playground turf our highest recommended option for durability.
2. Safety: Our turf systems are playground safe and rated on fall heights up to 8’ high. Resiliency of turf from head impact is uniform throughout the playground use zones
3. Clean: Artificial turf is easy to clean and largely requires just the removal of large debris from the surface.
4. Cost Effective: Artificial turf is easy to clean and largely requires just the removal of large debris from the surface.
When you invest in a playground, you want to be sure it provides maximum safety for as long as possible. Playground turf lasts longer than most safety surfacing you’ll find, and it comes backed by our 10-year warranty.
There’s enough mess in life without the added grime on kids, clothes, and floors after being on the playground. Other surfaces such as mulch, sand, or even other synthetic grass with exposed crumb rubber leave kids’ clothes and hands messy.
Artificial Turf Maintenance
Playground turf is a clean, easy-to-maintain surface. It’s a unitary surface that requires very little maintenance, typically not requiring more than a brushing, or blowing off landscape debris from other plantings.
How to Maintain Playground Grass
What kind of maintenance is needed for playground turf?
Groom fibers twice a year with a power broom weed whacker attachment to refresh fibers.
Replenish in-fill of sand if needed (dependent on soil conditions, precipitation and usage). We back our product with a 10-year warranty. Many installations are still in use after 15 years.
Playground Turf and Accessibility
Artificial turf for playgrounds passes the ASTM F1951 test for ADA accessibility, meaning that wheelchairs can easily roll across it. We are proud to offer a truly accessible playground surfaced with our synthetic grass for playgrounds.
