Our Play Advantage

Playground Grass offers a superior playground surface that outperforms in every way.

If you are looking for the best value in a playground surface that will last longer, need less maintenance, and improve play, the choice is easy. No other surface compares to Playground Grass.

Playground Grass is…

Durable

Durable

When you invest in a playground, you want to be sure it provides maximum safety for as long as possible. Playground Grass is the longest-lasting surface you’ll find, and it comes backed by our 10-year warranty. Our XP blade is one of the toughest available, and that’s what we use in the construction of all four of our Playground Grass products.

Clean

Clean

There’s enough mess in life without the added grime on kids, clothes, and floors after being on the playground. Other surfaces such as mulch, sand, or even other turf with exposed crumb rubber leave kids a mess. That mess is transferred into the school or home and will damage floors after time.

Playground Grass, on the other hand, offers the cleanest playground surface available. It’s a unitary surface that requires very little infill and in some cases none. Our proprietary backing system gives dimensional stability, so we don’t have to put a lot of infill in the top of the blades. In fact, our texturized grass thatch is designed to lock in the little infill we do use so it doesn’t fly out.  Plus, if needed, our Extreme and Discovery products can be used with no infill at all.

Accessible

Accessible

Playground Grass passes the ASTM 1951 test for ADA accessibility, meaning that wheelchairs can go across it. And we don’t just have our product tested in the lab; we go the extra mile to ensure it actually works for the long-haul in real-world use (see our grass in action). Proprietors are proud to offer a truly accessible playground surfaced with Playground Grass. And parents of children with disabilities love to see their kids enabled to play without limits.

Anti-Static

Antistatic

Some surfaces build up static, which is annoying when you get shocked and downright dangerous when it may interfere with cochlear implants and other electronic devices. Playground Grass Ultra is the only playground surface on the market with a built-in antistatic component. Go the extra mile to protect kids and create a safe play environment.

Antimicrobial

Antimicrobial

We all know it’s natural for kids to be gross sometimes. They get sick, they have accidents; it happens. And if it’s not the kids, it’s the weather. The last thing you want is the growth of mildew and bacteria after a storm goes through and leaves standing water sitting on your play surface for days or weeks.

We can’t stop these things from happening, but with the antimicrobial properties of Playground Grass Ultra, you can inhibit the growth of bacteria on your turf. As opposed to antimicrobial sand or other additives that wear away over time, our artificial grass blades have built-in antimicrobial properties. Thus, there’s no platform on which bacteria can grow. And as the blades wear, the more the antimicrobial action is released.

Safe

Safe

When we developed the first safety system under our artificial grass back in 2004, it achieved a 12-foot fall safe rating even though 90% of playgrounds only required fall-safe ratings up to 8 feet. That same tried and true system is used today. Learn more about Playground Grass safety.
