Artificial Grass for Playgrounds

If you’re building or renovating a playground, consider using artificial grass to help create a safer play environment that looks great, is easy to maintain, and is far more durable than the alternatives.

Here are a few reasons we think artificial grass is an excellent choice for any playground, whether it’s in a school, park, or your private backyard.

Safer Than Live Grass and Other Materials

Kids get bumps and bruises, and if your little ones take a tumble, artificial turf absorbs impacts better than natural grass, reducing the shock from any unexpected playground nosedives.

Bark and wood chips are sharp and can cause cuts, scrapes, and splinters. Artificial grass is soft and smooth and actually produces less friction on skin than live grass does.

Shredded tires can get hot in direct sunlight, while artificial grass stays cool to the touch just like natural grass.

Reduce Allergens

Natural grass harbors pollen and other allergens that can significantly irritate skin and cause more severe allergic reactions in sensitive children.

Artificial grass, on the other hand, is allergen-free and can dramatically reduce or even eliminate allergy symptoms in many kids, enabling them to play outside worry-free!

Durable and Weather Resistant

Artificial grass can hold up to extreme heat, rain, and even snow without issue, while still looking great. And since artificial turf drains easily, children can return to play sooner after rainfall without having to worry about puddles or getting caught in the mud.

Synthetic turf is more durable to wear and tear than live grass, which makes it a popular choice in sports fields. Kids can run and play on artificial turf day after day without any concern about wearing it out or destroying the grass.

Cleaner Than Natural Grass

Even on a dry sunny day, playing in natural grass can leave kids dirty and dusty. Woodchips and sandboxes are even worse.

Artificial grass is simply cleaner, with no little particles to accumulate or transfer to children’s clothes. This means you can say goodbye to grass stains, muddy footprints, and little shoes filled with sand.


You may already know that artificial turf does not require daily watering, which helps conserve water. And since artificial turf never needs mowing or trimming, there are no emissions from lawnmowers or trimmers.

Synthetic grass also never needs fertilizers, weed-killers, or pesticides, which keeps potentially harmful chemicals out of the playground and away from your children.

Looks and Feels Natural

Artificial grass comes in a variety of colors and styles and can have the same beauty and texture as natural grass. And for a low-maintenance option, beats the look of wood chips, bark, and shredded tires any day. Artificial grass will be a great-looking addition to your playground, that kids will love playing on.

Artificial Grass Is the Clear Choice

Artificial grass has the same look and feel as natural grass, but is safer, cleaner, stronger, and more environmentally friendly all while being easier and cheaper to maintain.  If you ask us, choosing artificial turf for your playground is a no-brainer.
