BENEFITS OF ARTIFICIAL GRASS FOR PLAY AREAS

by | Dec 18, 2017 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

Artificial grass is such a versatile surface that it can be used for almost anything, even indoors, and with this in mind, we’ve put a post together today to discuss the benefits of artificial grass for play areas. So, if you’re in charge of a nursery or play group and you currently have a natural turf, by the time we’ve explained the clear advantages to having artificial grass, we think you’ll be ready to consider this fantastic alternative to natural grass.

Children are encouraged to spend more time outdoors to get some much-needed exercise and to indulge in some creativity, learning, health, help improve social skills and for overall well-being. As you can imagine then, where there’s groups of children, in nurseries or school playgrounds, there’ll be a designated area for play, where children can feed their imagination and socialise with their peers.

ALLERGIES?

This can often be hampered by certain factors, one of those being allergies. If children suffer with allergies such as hay fever, then going outside becomes a nightmare. Rather than put children through that, by having artificial grass installed, you stop all this. No allergies and no sick children, they can play outside with their symptoms drastically reduced.

PUT A STOP TO GRASS AND MUD BEING DRAGGED INTO OTHER AREAS

Playing on a natural surface is fine when there’s dry weather, but as we live in a country that has its fair share of rain, we know that it doesn’t remain dry for long. When children play on wet damp grass surfaces, there’s bound to be mud and grass which then gets transported to the next area they play in, perhaps in an area where there isn’t supposed to be any grass and mud. It’ll also get dragged indoors within the classrooms and corridors. Artificial grass is one way of ending the problem of grass and mud everywhere. They’ll have wet feet yes, but they won’t be dragging grass and mud in unwanted areas or bringing it indoors.

SAVE MONEY YOU CAN USE FOR SOMETHING ELSE

Natural grass that sees a lot of foot traffic will require a lot of maintenance too because the grass will need cutting, trimming and then it’ll need chemicals to keep weeds, moss and insects from damaging it. All this costs money that could be more effectively utilised elsewhere. You can stop all that with artificial grass, despite the initial investment, once you’ve had it installed, you’ll start to save money. And you’ll be able to use that money to spend on the children instead.

GIVE YOUR CHILDREN A PLAY AREA THEY’LL LOVE

Artificial grass provides a permanent soft, durable surface that will last for many years. It can be cut to any shape and children will be able to run, jump and play all over it without any risk of damage. Here at the Turf Warehouse we’ve created thousands of play areas in both gardens and commercial nurseries, so we know what we’re talking about.
