ARTIFICIAL GRASS FOR YOUR PLAYGROUNDS
Playgrounds in residential areas and at schools are used very intensively; especially those playgrounds with challenging climbing equipment for children. Natural grass usually does not survive rough playground activities and requires a large amount of maintenance. Artificial grass is the solution! It is an excellent alternative for natural grass and children will enjoy playing in a safe environment created especially for them. Artificial grass is very strong and can be used for many purposes so have a look at our examples of play areas.
BENEFITS OF ARTIFICIAL GRASS IN PLAYGROUNDS
When natural grass is used intensively, it gets damaged and what once was a nice green field becomes a hard and dry or muddy and wet patch of earth. This is not really appealing for children to play on and usually means their games move on to more dangerous areas in public spaces. Fortunately, there is an alternative available: artificial lawn. It is low in maintenance and long-lasting. Royal Grass produces various types of artificial turf designed for playgrounds and playing fields. All types are easy to maintain, saving you time and money. They are an ideal solution for playgrounds as kids can play outside all year round.
