The 5 Best Things About Artificial Grass For Kids Play Area

children playing on grass

Children love playing outdoors. They are happiest when they can run, jump and play as much as they want. Playing is an essential part of their physical development. 

Give them the outdoor space area they love by installing Eco Lawn’s artificial grass. Our synthetic turf is designed to look natural, durable, and perfect for play areas as it creates a non-slip and water-resistant space for your kids. Now they can enjoy the sun and engage in physical activities that could benefit their health without the muddy mess and with lesser injuries.

Here are five advantages to consider why our artificial turf is the right choice to use in your child’s play area:

Fewer Scraped Knees

No matter how much we try to protect our kids from getting hurt, when they play, tripping and falling are inevitable. The chances of having a scraped knee and elbow are always there. Scrapes from harsh surfaces or coarse sand can immediately ruin the fun and change the mood. 

Artificial grass is easier on the skin, and it is better than wood chips and gravel that are commonly used as playground flooring. It is soft and feels very similar to natural grass. Plus, it provides a cushion to lessen the injury of the child after a fall.

Cleaner Play Environment

Artificial grass brightens the lawn and plays area making it look clean and inviting for kids to roll around without feeling itchy and getting mud stains on their clothes. Since it is water-resistant, it eliminates water puddles that can result in wet and muddy clothing. It also prevents injury from fall due to slippery surfaces.

The clean factor also applies to your pets. You can easily let them out to play without getting anxious that they might end up covered in mud and leave muddy paw prints all around the house. Artificial grass is pet-friendly, and it has fewer bacteria and chemicals, unlike natural grass, which is usually treated with chemicals to keep it green and healthy-looking, thus making it safe for your pets.

Reduce Maintenance Work

Artificial grass does not need chemical treatment to prevent the weeds from growing back. Maintenance is less time-consuming and easier-no need for fertilizers or lawn mowing routine procedures to keep it neat. In case juice spills or stains, simply spray it with a water mixture and mild detergent and blot it out with an absorbent fabric after rinsing.

Lower maintenance cost

There are a few essential tools you need to maintain your artificial grass. But they are far cheaper than the tools you need to maintain the color and healthiness of natural grass. You will need a hose and a water supply to rinse the grass, but if rain is frequent in your area, then these tools are not necessary. You could also save electricity since you do not have to mow the lawn routinely.


Artificial grass is designed to be durable for child’s play and everyday use. The surface experiences natural wear and tear but with proper maintenance and care, it could extend its life’s longevity. The materials used can withstand daily torture and dig-proof for your pets and varmints. The edges do not easily fray and are constructed to be water, stain, and abrasion-resistant.
