Children's play area with wooden swing set and artificial turf.

It goes without saying that play is extremely important for your child's development. It helps them to learn how to interact with each other, explore the surrounding world, and, most importantly, have fun!

Outdoor play is a great way for for children to get that much-needed daily excercise and fresh air, which is why many homes, schools, and nurseries install artificial grass to provide, safe, easy-to-maintain play areas for kids of all ages. 

The benefits of installing artificial grass in your children's play area are endless. There's less maintenance involved, no patchiness, no clothing stains, and, most importantly, it dries quickly for playtime - making it it ideal no matter what the unpredictable UK weather has in store.

The Benefits of Artificial Grass in Children's Play Areas

Interested in fitting out your children's play area space with an artficial grass roll? Here are some of the benefits of using artificial grass as a safe and smart alternative in your outdoor (or indoor) play space. 

Soft and Safe

Children love to run, jump, and roll, so there's bound to be the occasional trip and fall while they're exploring. Artificial grass is soft, anti-slip and won't graze young skin, helping to put your mind at ease while your child plays. 

Thinking about the benefits of indoor grass? You'll also find that artificial grass rolls are often much quieter than hardwood, laminate, or linoleum flooring, helping to keep the peace when children run around!


Hypoallergenic and Easy-Clean 

Artificial grass is easy to clean and hypoallergenic, two more features that make it an ideal choice for fitting your children's play area. It's much less muddy than real grass, and more resistant to spills and accidents that can come as a result of everyday wear and tear. It also removes the worry of grass pollen or dust mites, making it an excellent choice for children with allergies. 


Long-Lasting and Durable 

Artificial grass won't fade or flatten, even with children constantly running around on it. You also won't need to mow, water, or fertilise artificial grass rolls, and their durability means they can last up to 20 years. This makes them a fantastic alternative to natural grass in the garden, or even carpet in the house.


Suitable for Indoor Use

Thinking of using artificial grass for your indoor play area? Bumps and knocks are common with play, so you want to make sure that they're on a soft surface that can aid in preventing injury as much as possible. Again, our specific ranges are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, and can be used as additional protection for your children.
