Why You Should Consider Artificial Grass in Your Child’s Outdoor Play Area

If there is one thing kids love, it's playing outside, and a lawn is the ideal spot for all their outdoor fun. However, many busy parents don't have the time or energy to care for a natural lawn on top of their childcare responsibilities. That's where artificial grass comes in. With a synthetic lawn, you and your children will get all the benefits or real grass, but with a small fraction of the ongoing care and maintenance. Here's why you should consider making the switch to artificial grass in your yard or childcare facility. Get in touch with us for a consultation today.

A Safe, Comfortable Spot to Play

Like a natural lawn, artificial grass feels cool and soft underfoot, making it a great choice for kids' play areas. With a soft surface underneath, you'll minimize the risk of skinned knees, bruises, and other injuries. On hot, sunny days, synthetic grass stays relatively cool to the touch, so your kids can safely run around barefoot, making outdoor play even more enjoyable.

Long-Term Durability

In high-traffic areas like playgrounds, live grass can take a bit of a beating, leaving bare patches in the lawn. Artificial grass, on the other hand, is designed to withstand heavy use without degrading. Although artificial blades of grass will flatten over time, it is easy to restore their full, lush appearance with a quick sweep with a broom to revive the blades. Not having to reseed or apply fresh sod to restore bare patches can save you a lot of time and money over the years.

Easy Ongoing Care

One of the biggest benefits of artificial grass is that it requires minimal maintenance. This is a huge boon for busy parents and childcare facility operators. When you no longer have to deal with frequent mowing, watering, fertilizing and other lawn care tasks, you'll have more time for what's truly important: enjoying your lawn with your kids. Periodic rinsing and sweeping is typically all that is needed.

Suitable for Any Weather

In rainy or snowy weather, natural grass lawns can get muddy, making it more difficult to enjoy playing outdoors. Not only that, but kids can track mud and other debris from the lawn indoors, creating more work for you in cleaning up after outdoor play. With artificial grass, you won't have to worry about mud, so your kids can have fun on your lawn even on rainy days. Synthetic grass holds up well in snowy conditions as well, so feel free to make snowmen or snow angels as much as you like!
