Why You Should Get Turf for Your Children’s Playground Today

Playgrounds are an essential part of childhood development because they provide a place for kids to get out their energy and build social skills with other kids. But have you ever wondered if there was a way to make playgrounds safer and more aesthetically appealing? Luckily, artificial playground turf offers a great solution when it comes to protecting kids from injuries, all while keeping the look and feel of real grass. Find out why this low-maintenance option is gaining popularity among homeowners and commercial properties alike. 

 

Increased Safety from Falls 

For parents and guardians, keeping your children safe is the number one priority, and your danger sense might be on high alert at a playground. Playgrounds can present a number of hazards, from scraped knees to dangerous heights. Artificial turf is constructed to have a shock-absorbing under layer, which has been proven to help cushion falls from up to 12 feet. You can get back your peace of mind, knowing that your child will be protected if they fall off the jungle gym. Additionally, synthetic turf is constructed from a material that is less abrasive than grass and does not result in stained clothes, saving you from hours spent trying to remove grass stains from clothing. 

 

 

Why Playground Turf is More Hygienic 

It’s well-known that the playground can harbor plenty of germs from being touched hundreds of times every day. However, with synthetic grass for playgrounds, you get the benefit of creating a more hygienic environment for all visitors. Unlike natural grass, which can have troubles draining and issues with mud puddles, synthetic grass has superior drainage rates and also eliminates the chances of nesting pests. If you’re looking for a safe, sanitary alternative to natural grass, synthetic turf is your solution.

 

Easy Customization 

There are endless benefits when it comes to choosing artificial turf over other playground materials such as wood chips and rubber, but one of these is the ability to customize the appearance of your playground. Artificial turf comes in a variety of colors and styles to match your specific needs. You also don’t have to worry about difficult climates or areas because you can install playground turf practically anywhere, including indoors, making it a versatile solution for all locations. 

 

 

Low Maintenance 

One of the main factors that draw people to artificial turf over other competitors is the reduced maintenance requirements needed to have an incredible lawn. No more water, mowing, or fertilizing. Synthetic turf can help to minimize your bills since you will no longer need to hire landscapers or pay for routine water use. The artificial turf installation process is quick and easy and the results leave you with a fresh, bright green lawn for years to come. Additionally, it’s simple to replace sections of turf that see more foot traffic than others, meaning you can spot treat targeted sections of the turf instead of replacing the entire surface.
