xOne of the first concerns people generally bring up if they are not on board with artificial grass used for playgrounds is the idea that there is no padding and therefore children will be injured. This is not accurate. You can choose the level of padding your artificial grass comes with, and it can help kids stay safe even if they fall from ten feet. It is also soft to the touch, which prevents grass-stained and scraped up needs.
If you need artificial grass with technologies that keep it cool to the touch, we can help with that. Decades ago, this was not an option and artificial grass could get quite hot. Today it stays at a comfortable temperature so it can be used even in the hottest of suns.
If you have a playground that is covered in natural grass and it rains, it could be days before it is clean enough for the kids to play without tracking mud throughout the house. This is not an issue with artificial grass, as it does not get muddy at all. You also do not have to worry about your child’s clothing getting grass-stained, and if the grass is ever dirty, you can simply hose it down.
Even if you love gardening and working in the outdoors, it is likely that you would rather put that energy into a beautiful flower patch or a bountiful veggie garden than to spend the time or energy with a lawn. Do you really want to keep mowing, fertilizing, and treating weeds? If you choose a playground surface such as wood chips or sand, they will blow away and need to be replaced sooner than you think. Mulch and sand also have to be racked to keep them from becoming compacted. On the other hand, artificial grass requires very little maintenance.
We know that all of the above is only meaningful if you still love the way it looks. Today’s artificial grass is beautiful, feels great to the touch, and is available in just about any color or length you want.
