Artificial grass is becoming popular among house owners because of its considerable benefits in terms of convenience, low maintenance and cost savings. The question is “can these benefits be transferred to recreational areas with playgrounds like councils, sports clubs, schools and daycare centres?”
There are numerous advantages to using this kind of artificial grass for playgrounds, and they include:
1. Health Benefits of Artificial Grass for Playgrounds
Artificial or synthetic grass has been proven to be safer for kids. Unlike other types of playground surfaces, it is soft and the likelihood of a child getting injured while having fun is minimized. Natural grass is sharp and hard, and can cut through a child’s soft skin. In the event that a child falls whilst playing on a playground with artificial grass, the child is likely to escape sustaining bruises, but that’s not the case when it comes to natural grass.
Using this type of artificial grass for playgrounds keeps children relatively clean after playing. Natural grass leaves children dirty after playing, and this sort of dirt might prove hard to wash off. Dirt from artificial grass goes off quickly and does not leave stain marks on clothes.
2. Durable Artificial Grass for Playgrounds
It lasts longer. When fully installed, you do not need to worry about changing it for years. This will save you more money. The grass also remains green no matter the season. It doesn’t bleach or wear out.
3. Low maintenance Artificial Grass for Playgrounds
When you choose artificial/synthetic grass, you do not have to go through tiring mowing and upkeep. Unlike natural grass, it will retain its quantity and quality. All that is required is to remove a few specks of dirt blown by the wind on your grass. With this, children would have unlimited time to play. With natural grass, the playground is locked at intervals and its usage is restricted due to the regular maintenance needed. Also, you’ll save a lot of money from maintenance costs.
