Playground Grass Synthetic Turf vs. Rubber Tiles
When it comes to playground surfacing, there’s only one solution that checks off all the boxes– and it’s not rubber tiles! Playground Grass™ synthetic turf outperforms other turf, mulch, and rubber tile flooring in every way.

Rubber tiles just don’t cut it for playground surfacing.
Parents, teachers, and superintendents prefer Playground Grass synthetic turf over rubber tiles.
"We’ve had kids fall off, land on the turf, and be great. The safety of our new turf has had the most prominent impact."
"[Kids] are more willing to take the leap [on our new playground synthetic turf] because they know they won’t get hurt."
"It allows kids to get back to nature, looks real, allows them to disconnect from the world, which fosters creativity."
"Our community park and school playgrounds have such aesthetic appeal…. it’s even driving new and existing home sales."
Playground Grass promotes accessibility, safety, and stimulation for all children.
15′ Critical Fall Height
Playground Grass synthetic turf meets the 15-foot critical fall height. When you choose Playground Grass, you choose a surfacing solution that exceeds expectations, not just meets them.
8 x 8 Safety Surface Warranty
Playground Grass synthetic turf is guaranteed to meet ASTM 1292 standards for 8 years at 8 feet. This means that there’s no regular replenishing needed to keep the surface safe—unlike rubber tiles that must be maintained at a certain thickness to remain effective.
Tactile Sensory Stimulation
Children with autism spectrum disorders thrive with tactile sensory stimulation. A surface like rubber tiles takes that away from their playground experience. Our synthetic grass gives kids the feel of natural grass without the ability to tear out blades.
Did you know static buildup on playgrounds can harm children who rely on electronic medical devices like cochlear implants? Playground Grass staves off static with revolutionary XStatic™ Antistatic technology.
