Playground safety involves more than merely proper maintenance of equipment. It also involves providing a safe environment wherein children can run and play freely without worrying about slipping and falling. 

As far as playground surfaces go, synthetic turf is a popular choice for a variety of reasons. Learn more about the benefits of fitting your playground with synthetic turf below. 


Why Choose Synthetic Turf? 

The following are common reasons why many people turn to artificial turf as a safe surface for playgrounds.

  • Convenience - Unlike natural grass surfaces, synthetic turf does not require water, fertilizer, nor pesticides.
  • Aesthetic - Modern-day synthetic turf does not look artificial. Synthetic turf is arguably more attractive than real turf.
  • Resilience - Properly manufactured synthetic turf can withstand heavy use without showing any signs of wear and tear. 

Where Can you Use Synthetic Turf? 

Synthetic turf is most useful when placed in playgrounds, as they can safely be installed under playground equipment. If kids fall from a certain height, the synthetic turf can cushion their descent.

Although synthetic turf is most commonly used in playgrounds, it can also be used in almost any type of recreational area. 

A few areas where artificial turf is commonly found are:


  • Playgrounds 
  • Dog Parks
  • Public Parks 
  • Sports Fields

Care & Maintenance 

You’ll need to maintain your synthetic turf to maximize its lifespan properly. 

Firstly, you’ll need to occasionally douse the turf with water. You won’t need to water it as often as regular grass. You are merely keeping your turf clean. 

For more extensive spills and stains, consider using a mixture of soap and warm water. Alternatively, you may also use a solution consisting of half vinegar and half water. 

If your synthetic turf is only moderately dirty, a leaf blower or a quick rinse with a hose will quickly remove any kind of dirt that has collected on the turf.
