Three Ways Artificial Grass Effectively Reduces Injuries on Playgrounds

Parents have the most demanding job on the planet. We all want our kids to get outdoors and have fun, but we also want to protect their safety. Striking a balance is one of the toughest challenges parents of young children face daily.

Artificial grass playscapes give your family the fun they want with the protection they need. Synthetic grass is proven to reduce playground injuries, which is one of the reasons it’s so popular for families in Laguna Niguel and the South Bay. 

If you’re installing a new backyard playscape, here are three reasons to consider using artificial grass.

Synthetic Grass Prevents Slips and Falls

When it rains, natural grass becomes messy and slippery. Mud, puddles and dewy blades of grass can all cause slips and falls. 

Artificial turf is made with highly-efficient drainage to wash away rainwater quickly. Synthetic turf won’t become muddy, which helps keep falls to a minimum (and it doesn’t hurt that the kids won’t come home covered in mud).

It’s Extra Cushioned

With kids, some slips and falls are inevitable. Whether they’re jumping off monkey bars or just playing tag, accidents will happen.

Help keep injuries minor with artificial grass. Unlike playground materials like rubber, mulch and sand, our playground turf is extra-cushioned to help break their falls. The added shock absorbency can be the difference between a bruise and a broken bone. 

Proper Artificial Grass Installation Prevents Injuries

Installation can make or break the overall quality of your artificial grass installation. The wrong contractor will leave your artificial grass bumpy and improperly secured, which can lead to more slips and falls.
