Sometimes you want the natural grass look for your playground, but you still want to comply with safety regulations. Playground turf is the perfect solution for you to get the best of both worlds. In addition to being compliant for safety requirements for play areas, there are plenty of other benefits to choosing playground turf for your property. Let’s take a closer look at why you should consider playground turf for your play area.

One great benefit of playground turf is that it can help protect children from germs and getting dirty. Natural surfaces can get children dirty with dirt and grass stains, but this isn't a problem with turf. Plus, since children aren't exposed to the dirt from natural surfaces, they can also be protected from the bacteria that tend to live on natural surfaces. It is also an excellent choice for people who have allergies since turf doesn't carry the allergens real grass does.

There is also an increase in the safety and accessibility of a playground when you use playground turf. There are specific guidelines for safety and accessibility that public playgrounds need to abide by. Within fall zones, there is a particular rating for protection required that natural grass doesn't offer. Playground turf offers an ATSM rating of up to 12 feet when properly installed. If a child does fall, the turf has a soft surface that will reduce the risk of injury.

Playground turf also gives you a maintenance-free solution for your playground. The problem with grass is the constant maintenance needed to keep it in excellent condition. This can be costly and time-consuming. Natural grass needs to be regularly mowed, watered, and during the fall, it needs to have the leaves raked up. You may also need the help of pesticides and fertilizers to keep the grass looking fantastic.

Playground turf could be the perfect solution if you want safety surfacing that will keep children safe with the look of natural grass. It's great for the environment and highly beneficial for children. It is a cost-effective choice that will protect children from injury and add natural beauty to your playground. Artificial turf is an excellent option to consider for your playground.
