Artificial Grass for Playgrounds, Schools & Nurseries

Artificial grass can be highly beneficial to nurseries who may wish to have a playground surface installed, or schools who might want turf installed for a sports field. Artificial Grass provides a range of benefits; it’s flexible, durable, long lasting and highly cost effective. Not only that, but it also looks great and is very safe!

We use high-quality materials in order to create artificial grass which is soft & durable, making it the perfect safe option for children's areas. We have years of experience in installating artificial grass for playgrounds of all sizes in the UK, making CY Turf a trustworthy option for supply. Artificial grass for playgrounds is also a cost-effective option, being durable and low-maintenance.

Further Benefits of Artificial Grass for Playgrounds Include:

  • Safety - Artificial grass provides a cushioned and soft surface, reducing the risk of injuries from falls. It offers better impact absorption than natural grass, making it ideal for play areas where children often engage in active play.
  • Durability - Our Artificial grass is designed to withstand heavy foot traffic and intense play. It can endure rough and frequent use without becoming worn or patchy, ensuring a long-lasting and consistent playing surface for children.
  • Low-MaintenanceUnlike natural grass, artificial grass requires minimal upkeep. It eliminates the need for mowing, watering, fertilizing, and applying pesticides, saving both time and money. It also stays green and vibrant all year round, regardless of the weather conditions.

When it comes to installing a surface for areas used by children, it’s essential that it’s durable, easy to maintain, soft and safe. CY Turf go above and beyond to ensure that artificial grass for play areas, schools and nursery’s is all of the above, along with being high quality.

Artificial Grass is a great alternative to the most commonly used surfaces for play areas today. More traditional types of surfaces such as woodchips or tarmac can be unsafe to children who might fall and hurt themselves. Not only does artificial grass look great, but it’s a fantastic safe alternative which requires little to no maintenance over time! Artificial grass is also a much more long-lasting surface, which makes it a great cost-effective alternative to other traditional surfaces.

Artificial grass is a very popular choice for schools today for a variety of reasons. It is a perfect surface to use for a playground, as its durability makes it perfect for children to run about and play on for hours a day. It’s also great for sports fields for the likes of football or tennis which also require a very durable surface.

Is artificial grass suitable for a children's play area? 

  • Artificial grass is a suitable and very safe option for a children's play area, as it provides a soft and cushioned surface that can reduce the risk of injury from falls. Additionally, high-quality artificial grass designed for this purpose often incorporates features such as non-toxic materials and anti-bacterial properties to promote hygiene and safety when children are playing. 

Is artificial grass safe when hot? 

  • Artificial grass can become hot to the touch when in direct sunlight for long periods of time. However, most high-quality artificial grass products are designed with technology such as infrared reflective coatings and cooling agents that help reduce the surface temperature and make it more comfortable to use. As well as this, shading the area or watering the surface periodically can also help keep the temperature cool. 

What is the best height for artificial grass for a playground?

  • The best height for artificial grass in a playground setting depends on various factors such as the age range of the children expected to use the playground equipment, the type of playground equipment to be installed, and the cushioning properties of the underlying surface. A shorter pile height of around 25-30mm offers great stability and traction for running and jumping activities while still providing adequate cushioning.
