Reasons Why Kids Love Artificial Grass

Artificial grass has multiple advantages over natural grass, especially for families with children. If you’ve got kids who like to tumble around the yard, artificial turf is also much more fun and safe to play on than real grass. Headstands, or handstands? They’re much more comfortable and easier with artificial turf. Do you have kids who like to wrestle or play pile up? If so, an artificial grass lawn is your new best friend. Below are some of the reasons why kids love artificial grass.

Artificial grass is soft and safe
Our artificial grass uses an extremely soft yarn to ensure it is particularly suitable for children and pets to play on. This makes it safer for falls, with less scraped knees and tears. Combining this softness with incredible durability, our grass can stand up to running, football games, and unexpected tumbles. Because artificial turf feels soft to the touch, and because it can be paired with padding and/or infill to create cushioning, it’s ideal for rough and tumble play. 

Is Artificial Grass Safe

Artificial grass is cleaner and doesn’t stain clothes
Real grass comes with real dirt, real rocks, and real mud. That can present a real muddy mess. There is absolutely no risk of getting any nasty, almost impossible to remove green stains your clothes with artificial grass. Our turf comes with incredible drainage rates that ensure your lawn will be dry and safe for kids to play on just hours after the rain stops. The ultra-efficient drainage also keeps water from pooling on the surface of the grass the way it would with a natural grass lawn, which in turn prevents the development of harmful microorganisms such as mold or mildew. There’s never any mud to contend with, either, so you don’t have to worry about your kids tracking messes through the house if they go play. Y

Artificial grass dries quicker
No matter what time of day, time of year, or weather forecast, your kids can enjoy playing in the backyard while staying safe, healthy, and clean! After it has rained, natural grass stays wet for a longer time than artificial grass. This means that kids can dash outside right after a downpour, children can play on your lawn without you having to worry about them getting caked in mud, as it won’t be possible any longer – good news for the washing machine!

Artificial grass is usable all year
Natural grass requires maintenance. It needs to be detached, fertilized, sprayed and patches need to be sown or installed again… With all this maintenance, your kids won’t be allowed on your lawn for a couple of weeks a year. Artificial grass, however, doesn’t require those maintenance works. Once the installation’s been completed, your kids can play on it every day of the year.

Artificial grass helps prevent allergies

Natural grass produces pollen as part of its reproductive cycle, which can trigger an allergic reaction in sensitive children. This can lead to runny noses, watery eyes, sneezing, and even hives. Artificial turf, however, is made from synthetic polyethylene materials that don’t produce pollen. While pollen can still end up on the turf from other plants nearby, you can easily wash it away with a garden hose, creating a safer and healthier environment for your kids. Synthetic grass is also resistant to mold and mildew, two irritants that can also provoke children’s allergies.

Artificial grass makes chores easy

Any parent can tell you how hard it is to get kids to do their chores. Luckily, the low maintenance requirements of an artificial grass lawn can take the stress out of getting them to clean up outside. Synthetic turf only needs to be quickly rinsed every few weeks and occasionally cross-brushed to rebloom turf blades and de-compact infill. This means that it’ll be easier to get your children to help you around the house and yard.
