Playgrounds are designed to let kids run, jump, climb, swing, and play, but all that activity is tough on grass. Synthetic playground turf is a safe, low-maintenance alternative families love that gives your area the look and feel of real grass.

Safe Surface

Non-toxic synthetic playground turf is vastly superior to hot rubber surfaces and playground mulch.


Artificial playground turf never needs to be treated with pesticides or herbicides.

Extreme Durability

High-quality turf holds up to whatever kids and pets dish out, year after year.

Artificial Turf For Playgrounds

Best Pick for Safety

Safety is the most important thing about any outdoor play area for children. People who know kids understand that their high energy, fast movement, and developing coordination sometimes lead to slips and falls. Hard or abrasive surfaces just won’t do. 

Synthetic playground turf is soft and springy underfoot. It drains quickly when it rains, so your play area never develops muddy, slippery surfaces. Where loose materials like mulch and gravel become displaced, a continuous layer of playground turf stays put, protecting children from the hard ground beneath.

Top Choice for Health

All sorts of things live in the soil. Grass attracts pests. To keep grass healthy and pest-free, playground owners often have to treat play areas with insecticides and herbicides, all of which are toxic. Synthetic playground turf never needs chemical treatments, so it’s healthier for kids. It’s also antimicrobial, and it doesn’t trigger any of the allergies some children experience when exposed to grass.

Best All-Around Playground Turf

Experts all agree about the health benefits of physical activity for children. Provide little ones with a wide space for uninhibited play where they never get grass stains or fire ant bites. Enjoy year-round green grass without having to mow or fertilize.

What happens to synthetic playground turf in high wear areas?

We’ve all seen playgrounds where the ground under swings and around play gyms gets deeply worn. Our high-quality synthetic playground turf is designed to handle heavy traffic so that never happens, even after years of use.

Is playground turf safe for kids?

Synthetic grass is made of non-toxic chemicals and it doesn’t contain any of the natural elements that trigger allergic reactions. Very young children tend to put things in their mouths and may ingest the harmful organisms that live in soil, but playground turf repels those organisms.


Natural grass gets worn areas or irregularities that could cause trips and falls, but durable artificial turf provides a consistent surface year after year. It also never requires treatment with toxic chemicals, pesticides, and fertilizers often used to maintain healthy grass.

Does playground turf get hot underfoot?

In direct sunlight, synthetic turf gets warmer than grass does, because grass blades contain water. However, playground turf is much cooler than concrete, asphalt, brick or other hard surfaces that absorb heat.

How do you keep playground turf clean?

Playground turf is incredibly easy to keep clean. Use a leaf blower or rake to remove leaves and trash. If children spill drinks or food, rinse it off with water. For spills that stain or messes that smell, use a gentle commercial or household cleaner, then rinse with water.
