3 Reasons Artificial Grass Installation is the Best Choice for Reducing Playground Injuries

Playtime is the best time, and playgrounds offer a unique opportunity for kids to exercise their bodies and imaginations. Unfortunately, playgrounds are also an opportunity for injuries due to slips and falls, which turn the fun into a parental nightmare.

Create a safer playspace with artificial turf in Laguna Niguel. Due to its unique construction, this natural grass alternative protects your little ones while they romp around their imaginary worlds; OC Turf & Putting Greens has the quality, kid-friendly turf and expertise to accomplish this.

Read on to learn how synthetic grass reduces playground injuries!

Reduce Slips and Falls

Outdoor playgrounds are a childhood favorite, but their exposure to the elements leaves them vulnerable to rain. Poorly designed flooring or rubber mats can become slippery, increasing the likelihood of falls. Heavy rains cause puddle build-up, increasing fall risks and creating problems for parents.

Playground turf is specially designed with a porous backing that efficiently drains rainwater and other materials. This system reduces slippage and eliminates puddles. You can increase traction and safety by combining artificial grass with quality infill. 

As an added benefit, artificial grass reduces mud puddle build-up, decreasing the laundry you’ll have to do after playtime.  

Protective Underpadding

It’s the impact, not the fall, that causes an injury. OC Turf & Putting Greens’ playground turf products utilize a protective underpadding. Even if your little ones happen to fall, the likelihood of an injury resulting is significantly reduced.

Synthetic turf underpadding has improved shock absorption compared to traditional playground surfaces like sand, rubber, mulch and pavement. While these materials range in effectiveness, they can all cause injuries to elbows and knees after a fall.

It’s easier to spot harmful debris in artificial turf, too. These dangerous materials often hide among wood chips and mulch, but the color contrast due to synthetic turf’s evergreen color makes identifying debris easy. This is yet another cause of fall injury that artificial grass eliminates.

Increased Safety with Proper Installation

The final step in securing a safe play space for your child is professional synthetic turf installation. Properly installed turf creates an even surface across which your child can run without the risk of tripping over insecure corners.

OC Turf & Putting Greens is a team of expert artificial turf installers who provide fast and friendly services to Orange County and Laguna Niguel residents. We ensure every corner is laid flat and secure, so there’s no slippage, dips or raised edges.

When synthetic playground turf is correctly installed with underpadding, the result is a safe playspace for your child to push their play to the limit.  

More Fun, Fewer Injuries

You don’t want to hold your kids back while they play, but you also want to ensure they’re safe. Artificial turf installation in Laguna Niguel is the middle-ground you need. Synthetic grass reduces slippage with efficient drainage systems and softens the falls that occur when installed with underpadding.

Here’s How Pet Turf Installation Creates a Paradise for Your Pup

To homeowners, their lawn is a place to sit, relax and bask in the beauty of their pristine landscape. To their dogs, however, a lawn is an extravagant space for play, exploration and—yes, going to the bathroom.

Artificial turf installation is the perfect way to create a paradise for your pets in Orange County. A comprehensive pet turf system creates a safe place for your furry friends to play while making clean-up easier for homeowners.

Read on to learn how to create the ideal landscape for your dogs using synthetic grass.

Create a Pet Zone

There’s no need to install synthetic turf throughout your entire yard just to accommodate your favorite pup. Give them a soft, cushioned space for playtime and relaxation by installing artificial grass in a designated area in your yard.

Pet turf is specially designed with a durable tuft bind that resists tears during vigorous playtime. The cushioned installation and a cooling infill create a comfortable space for your pet, especially during those hot Orange County summers.

Designating a space for your pet will ensure other areas of your landscape remain pristine and unbothered by your romping pups. 

Potty Train with Synthetic Turf

Potty training your pup is a common challenge for every dog owner. Synthetic grass can help by giving them a specific area outdoors to practice this skill. Artificial turf is bacteria and odor-free with an efficient drainage system that makes quick work of pet messes.

Artificial grass requires minimal maintenance following pet messes. Simply rinse your lawn with soap and water, a manageable task if the pet-friendly turf is limited to a specific area. Antimicrobial infill prevents further bacteria growth. 

Synthetic turf products help potty train your pets with specially designed construction that looks and feels like natural grass. Your dog won’t know the difference!  

Benefits of High-Quality Infill

Perfect your puppy paradise using high-quality infill, which adds ballast and boosts artificial grass pile heights for a lush appearance. Infill support has the added benefit of creating a softer surface for your dogs to pad around on.

Infill protects synthetic grass from damage, too. Intense weather, high foot traffic and the rowdiest pups won’t be able to damage your pristine lawn. Premium infill is the last step in realizing your dream landscape with artificial turf. 

Great for Dogs and Dog Owners

The unique construction of pet turf allows homeowners to create the perfect outdoor oasis for their furry friends. OC Turf & Putting Greens has high-quality turf products and expert installation to transform your landscape.

Dogs will love the natural feel and safe environment, while owners will appreciate the low-maintenance upkeep and clean landscape. Artificial turf is a win-win for dogs and dog owners alike.
