Well, for some of us the kids are starting to go back to school. While for how long and how often remain open questions, it is important to think about their safety while they are there. Certainly, schools will be taking every precaution to protect the children during this pandemic we’re fighting, but it’s also good to know that schools can have the tools that can help protect the kids during their day-today activities. Especially now, outdoor time is important and playgrounds designed with synthetic turf can offer some distinct benefits over natural grass.
Kids run fast. Kids try to make their swings go as high as they can. Kids chase each other. And kids fall. It’s just a fact that wherever children are playing, there is bound to be a mishap or two. Artificial turf works great in a playground; the infill used beneath the turf provides a padding level you’re not going to find with real grass. This infill is also typically better than the rubber surfaced areas you might see at some schools or public parks. As a result, you could have less injuries when there is any level of roughhousing going on.
Artificial turf means less mess. We all know how dirty the kids can get when the go out to play. Even a short recess at school could send the cleanest of children back in looking messy. Dirt, mud, grass stains … all preventable when the playground area is covered in a nice artificial turf.
We can’t be too careful these days. Every step we can take to keep ourselves and our children healthier is important. A play area with artificial grass will not bring about any allergies. No sneezing, no coughing, no watery eyes.
Artificial grass can be cleaned and disinfected. Yup! That’s a great benefit to have these days. Turf Prep has maintenance programs for their clients to keep the play space nice and clean. Another bonus is that regular maintenance is easier and safer. You have no worries about whether your child has been exposed to fertilizers and pesticides like you might with normal grass play areas.
Use it at home
As good as synthetic turf can be for schools and playgrounds, it works just as well at home. Do you have a play area with a swing set and slide in your backyard? Another perfect spot to use it. Of course, you can do a lot more at home planning a landscaped yard or putting green or perfect lawn. Many options are available.
