The Results Are In: Kids Love Artificial Grass!

Kids love being outdoors. They especially love rolling around or kicking a ball on a lush, green lawn in their own back yard.

And of course the same could be said for their parents. There’s nothing better than seeing your kids enjoy playing cheerfully in your backyard, rather than being glued to a TV set or tablet screen playing video games. It’s fun. It’s healthy. It’s good exercise. And it makes everyone happy.

Artificial grass makes the entire backyard play experience safer and easier for all involved. With an artificial grass lawn, you don’t get the tripping and falling hazards associated with real grass. No more slippery pockets of mud, no rocks, nothing to impede the steps of little feet. Especially if you have toddlers or little ones who aren’t fully steady on their feet, the relatively even surface of artificial grass will help them gain their confidence and avoid falling.

If you’ve got kids (or grown-ups) who like to tumble around the yard, synthetic 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? Yep. An artificial grass lawn is your new best friend.


Besides artificial grass, what are other alternatives to real grass lawns?

Many outdoor play areas often use wood chips, rubber chips, gravel, cement or sand as the base for playgrounds. Those materials all have their uses, of course. But they are all more messy or hazardous than artificial grass. What’s more, if kids are going to trip and fall, and we all know they will, it’s much safer for them to fall on a padded artificial grass surface than gravel, dirt, sand or cement.


Much less of a mess than real grass.

Real grass comes with real dirt, real rocks, and real mud. That can present a real muddy mess. Not to mention countless grass stains, mud stains, and ruined clothing. Artificial turf is cleaner with no stains to clothing, no muddy footprints, no carrying grass and debris inside the house, resulting in no mess, inside or outside.


Synthetic turf is environmentally friendly and allergen-free.

Many kids and pets have allergies to natural grass. Even those who don’t may be allergic to, or have reactions to pesticides, fertilizers, or other nasty chemicals commonly used to maintain real grass lawns. Artificial grass introduces none of these concerns to your backyard. It’s safe for your kids and pets, and you don’t need to use chemicals or smelly fertilizers to keep it looking beautiful year-round. Plus, it’s extremely easy to keep clean. Just hose it off occasionally to spray away any dust and debris.
