Is Artificial Grass Safe for Playgrounds?

When it comes to your kids playing on the playground, you have every reason to be concerned about the area’s cleanliness and safety. They could be getting mud or grass stains all over their clothes and the house, or slip and fall from the slick grass, resulting in an injury. There is good news for playgrounds though: artificial turf is the perfect playscape alternative that keeps your kids clean and safe in Laguna Niguel.  

Artificial Grass is Clean and Hygienic

Unlike other alternatives like; bark chips, sand or natural grass, artificial turf is non-toxic, allergen-free, and certified lead-free. It is incredibly durable and is made to withstand the roughest of play dates on the playground. With the implemented drainage system, synthetic grass dries quickly and will not flood after a rainfall. That means you won’t have to worry about your kids running around in the mud and dragging their muddy footprints into your home or car! Since the artificial grass has no dirt underneath, this consequently means the space will be a bug and insect-free environment. The playground system also features an artificial grass infill, which is coated in silicone and has antimicrobial properties to ensure a clean and hygienic outdoor play area for children.
