ARTIFICIAL GRASS FOR CHILDREN USING OUR WINNING SOLUTIONS FOR SAFE AND FUN OUTDOOR PLAY
School’s out for summer and children of all ages will be dashing outside to gardens and play areas throughout the UK. Children love to play outside.
Outdoor play is proven to contribute to child development, and the summer months present the ideal opportunity to let our little ones run off some of their energy in the garden. Playing outside promotes both physical and mental well being, such as encouraging muscle strength, flexibility, motor skills, coordination, sensory perception, as well as boosting vitamin D levels.
Mud, hard surfaces and patchy or overgrown lawns, however, can hinder both child and parent enjoyment and safety in the garden. That’s why more parents are opting for artificial grass solutions to provide safe year-round outdoor play solutions for their children.
Easigrass has more than three decades of experience supplying and installing artificial turf and a wealth of experience in creating fun, safe, durable, hygienic and well placed and positioned gardens for children to play. Artificial turf is extremely tough, durable and safe, making it a perfect surface for children to play on. Preventing mud and grass stain mess, fake grass also creates a softer, safer landing for your child if they fall over.
INTRODUCING THE EASI-PLAY SYSTEM – ARTIFICIAL GRASS FOR CHILDREN
Drawing on experience installing and supplying gardens throughout the UK and abroad, Easigrass has developed the popular Easi-play system, where the artificial grass lawn is cushioned underneath with soft, shock-absorbent pads. This cleverly designed, professionally installed system makes it ideal for use in and around swings, slides, climbing frames, paddling pools, and trampolines.
The Easigrass British-made range of grasses meets all the required national and international standards and is designed to be challenged by heavy footfall.
The Easigrass sunken trampoline and cushioned artificial grass surround has sparked huge nationwide interest among parents looking to create the perfect play area in the garden. Not only do they look fantastic, sunken trampolines provide much-need extra safety for children.
A conventional aboveground trampoline dominates a garden landscape, as its often immediately visible to anyone stepping outside – trampolines are not easily hidden away and if they can, we still want to easily keep an eye on the children.
In-ground trampolines offer a low profile, streamlined and more subtle alternative. The Easigrass team of professional installers can flush levels to make the trampoline blend in with the surrounding garden lawn, and frame it with specially designed cushioned artificial grass.
The obvious safety advantage of a sunken trampoline for children is that there is little to no distance between where they are bouncing and the ground around them. If a child falls off the trampoline, the distance to the ground is dramatically reduced and so is the chance of serious injury. The shock pad base installed underneath the Easigrass lawn provides a softer landing too, negating the need for an unsightly safety netting.
The Royal Society of Protection of Accidents advises people to place a trampoline on an ‘energy absorbing ground, such as a soft and springy lawn’ as Easigrass provides. The RSPA also advises creating a minimum fall height, and to take measures to ensure children do not go under a trampoline area. An in-ground trampoline meets all these safety requirements plus more.
Sunken trampolines are easier to keep clean and maintained, as they are more accessible and can be better protected with a cover. Framing the trampoline with an Easigrass lawn looks great and also eliminates the maintenance worries of mowing, mud and heavy footfall damage.
Easigrass supplies artificial grass solutions to many schools, colleges and universities. The tough and durable surfaces are perfect around goalmouths and basketball nets and under swings and play equipment.
Artificial grass ticks so many boxes for parents who want their children to play freely and safely outside. The advances in fake grass technology means it looks great and incredibly realistic.
EASIGRASS ADVICE ON WHAT PARENTS SHOULD LOOK OUT FOR WHEN BUYING ARTIFICIAL GRASS
- MAKE SURE THE ARTIFICIAL GRASS YOU CHOOSE IS DESIGNED WITH CHILDREN’S PLAY IN MIND AND MEETS ALL THE REQUIRED STANDARDS OF SAFETY. ASK LOTS OF QUESTIONS TO ENSURE YOU ARE DEALING WITH PROFESSIONAL SUPPLIERS AND FITTERS.
- THE LONGER THE PILE, THE MORE CUSHIONED THE GRASS. MAKE SURE YOUR SUPPLIER CAN PROVIDE YOU FULL INFORMATION AND ADVICE TO MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE OF FAKE GRASS FOR YOUR PARTICULAR NEEDS AND WISHES.
- WHILE IT’S POSSIBLE TO INSTALL ARTIFICIAL GRASS YOURSELF, EASIGRASS DOESN’T GENERALLY RECOMMEND SELF-FITTING. INSTALLATION – PARTICULARLY WHEN FITTING SHOCK PADS UNDERNEATH AND SEAMLESS, DURABLE EDGES- IS A HIGHLY SKILLED PROCESS.
OTHER ARTIFICIAL GRASS BENEFITS INCLUDE:
- LOW MAINTENANCE:
Time is a precious commodity, particularly for parents who are trying to juggle demanding commitments. By installing an Easigrass garden, you no longer have to worry about mowing, watering or maintaining the lawn. You’ll have more time with the children without compromising with a below-par, muddy lawn.
- NO CHEMICALS REQUIRED:
Fake grass eliminates the need to use harmful fertilisers and other chemicals to keep a healthy-looking lawn. You no longer have to worry about the exposure of these chemicals to your children or pets.
- YEAR-ROUND, HEAVY USE:
Synthetic turf is tough and is designed to withstand heavy use whatever the weather. It maintains a lush green appearance year-round. In fact, Easigrass lawns last up to 20 years heavy use – chances are the children will have grown up and probably left home before you have to think about replacing your lawn!
- NO MESS:
There’s no need to worry about muddy feet and clothes in the house, or grass stains. Any rain or water runs through the fully porous Easigrass installations without creating unsightly, slippery mud patches.
- GREAT FOR SMALL AND SHADY PLACES:
Artificial grass maximizes the potential of a small outdoor area. Fake grass is perfect for shady areas, where natural grass struggles to grow and thrive. Once the professionals have fitted your Easigrass garden, your children will instantly be able to make the most of outdoor play space created.
- PERFECT FOR SPORTS:
As well as the obvious safety benefits of having a shock absorbent layer fitted underneath your lawn surface for sports play, artificial grass also offers greater potential in terms of versatility and creativity in an outdoor space. Easigrass has installed artificial grass around garden cricket nets and supplies and fits golf putting greens throughout the UK and abroad. The young of age and the young of heart can have their own dedicated sports area in the garden thanks to the versatility of fake grass solutions.
Children love Easigrass gardens and so do their friends. Whether organising an outdoor children’s party, or just having a few friends around to play, fake grass provides a perfect and safe setting for everyone to enjoy the outdoors year-round.
