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.
