Can you use Artificial Grass for Play Areas?

If you’ve got children, you’re probably wondering if you can use Artificial grass for play areas? Artificial grass from Ecograss is one of the safest options for underfoot play. Despite the amount of crawling and running it’ll endure, the artificial grass stays pristine. Many schools and playing fields now have artificial grass installed. Kicking around footballs and playing tag on the playground, our artificial grass will keep your children happy and safe all day long. Play Equipment Have you got a new swing set you want to add to the children’s play area? Artificial grass is extremely durable and can withstand the weight of any climbing frame or swing set, and don’t worry they won’t sink into the artificial lawn. Rainy conditions Where there’s rain and natural lawn, there’s mud. This can now be a thing of the past, no more muddy clothing for the children to take home for washing, no more muddy footprints leading into the house. With our absorbent artificial grass that comes with plenty of drainage holes, you won’t need to worry about your children having outdoor fun. Schools, nurseries, and community parks If you’re looking to purchase artificial grass for play areas, local schools,s or nurseries, you’ve come to the right place. If you still want the natural look of a lawn but without the mud, and without the potential of injuries on hard surfaces, artificial grass should be your go-to option for the playground, or park play area. Artificial grass is the future of play!

Also, to help avoid any moss growth. Make sure to use a water-based weed killer, and it’s highly recommended you do a patch test on an off-cut first. Pet owners Pet owners love our lawns as they are easily maintained! You should make sure that all mess is removed from the surface, and if needed, you can hose the area down or use warm water to rinse away any residue. A mild detergent, such as diluted Zoflora, can be used to keep the lawn smelling nice and fresh. You can also purchase pet odor removers (for more information on which ones we suggest, contact us here).
