Artificial grass on playgrounds – A safe alternative
Did you know artificial grass saves water? That’s only one of the beneficial features of synthetic grass, and when used on playgrounds, there are other pros too! Create an aesthetically pleasing and safe playground by using the right surface material.
We at Cricket Turf offer beautiful and durable turfs for playgrounds that combine the aesthetics of natural grass with the advantages of synthetic options! When you opt to go with artificial grass for your playground, you get the following benefits:
- Safety – Not only is turf pleasing to the eye, it also offers a safer alternative to wood chips and gravel, which may lead to scraped knees and hard falls. Artificial solutions can offer an ATSM Safety rating of up to 12 feet when installed over a proper base. This means fewer, or no cuts and broken bones! It also provides a smooth surface, so wheelchairs and other people with special mobility needs can also access the playground without any problem.
- They reduce germs and dirt – Playgrounds are popular areas that are used on a daily basis. A day at the playground often results in a happy but dirty child, because dirt and debris are unavoidable parts of the experience. Cleaning up the playground can make you loose precious time, while the dirt poses health risks to children since bacteria and allergens are constantly lurking on natural surfaces.
- Minimal maintenance – Gravel and wood chips eventually get carried or blown away, thus needing regular refills. Artificial grass does not need mowing, fertilization, or seeding to maintain that lush, green look. Synthetic turf last much longer than other solutions, while the only maintenance required is just a quick spray with water to remove the dirt (but this should be done regularly to attain the surfaces’original features).
- Teaching kids about recycling – Since these products are made of recycled materials, there is probably no better place to teach children about the importance of being eco-friendly, recycling and other environmental topics.
