Why Synthetic Turf is Better for Your Dallas Playground

May 24, 2024

Playgrounds are a vital part of every child’s development, providing them with the opportunity to play, explore, and learn in a safe and fun environment. However, the traditional surfaces used in playgrounds, such as asphalt, woodchips, and natural grass, may pose safety hazards and limitations for children at play.

This is where synthetic grass comes in, offering an ideal landscaping solution that enables safe and enjoyable playtime. If you’re a parent, teacher, or caregiver, here are just a few of the many reasons why playground turf is the superior choice for your Dallas playground.

Enhanced Safety

As much as we would love for our children to play carefree, playgrounds can be prone to accidents such as trips and falls. Traditional playground surfaces such as wood chips and mulch offer some impact protection, but they also pose a risk for cuts, scrapes, and other injuries while at play. That’s why homeowners and municipalities prefer synthetic grass for their playground landscaping.

SGW Dallas playground turf is IPEMA-certified and meets or exceeds all standards set by the American Society for Testing and Materials, so you can be confident that your kids are protected at play. Our synthetic turf play systems are specially designed to be as safe as possible for kids, and your artificial turf installers will install the PlayScapes system with an eco-friendly foam padding underlayer that is proven to protect children from impact falls and injuries from up to 10 feet high. Safety is the first priority for our PlayScapes system, so you can rest assured that our playground turf products are some of the safest and most durable landscaping options available for kids.


Dallas is known for its extreme weather conditions, ranging from scorching heat to heavy rain. However, unlike natural grass, synthetic turf is designed to withstand all weather conditions while remaining vibrant, green, and pristine.

Our wholesale turf is made of durable polyethylene fibers with a flexible polyurethane backing that can withstand high temperatures, freeze-thaw cycles, and heavy rainfall, making it an ideal choice for playgrounds in any climate. Unlike natural grass, synthetic turf doesn’t become muddy during rainy days, ensuring that your playground is dry and usable only an hour or two after a storm. Moreover, it doesn’t lose its color or become patchy from direct sunlight exposure, so your Dallas playground will look lush and inviting all year long.

Easy to Clean

When it comes to anything kid-related, cleanliness is key. Kids are bound to get dirty while playing, so you want a surface that’s easy to clean and maintain. Artificial grass is one of the cleanest options for kids at play, thanks to its ultra-efficient drainage capabilities. Since artificial turf is installed with a drainage underlayer and consists of polyethylene fibers, there’s no soil to contend with, and, as a result, there’s no mud to worry about. 

You also don’t have to worry about grass stains on clothes or splinters and scratches from falls. If your kid does make a mess on the turf, it’s incredibly easy to clean. You can rinse it down with the hose and apply a turf deodorizer to flush away bacteria and eliminate odors. Thanks to the drainage rate, it’ll be dry and ready to enjoy again in no time.

More Sanitary for Kids

Between their developing immune systems and their love for getting messy, kids can expose themselves to all kinds of germs when they’re out to play. Bacteria can be a big problem on playground surfaces, but with the help of sanitary synthetic grass and antimicrobial installation accessories, you can keep your play space clean and germ-free.

Artificial grass is non-toxic, lead-free, and hypoallergenic, making it more comfortable to play on for children with allergies or sensitivities. Its efficient drainage also eliminates the risk of standing water that can encourage mold or mildew growth in natural grass. All SGW Dallas synthetic grass products can also be paired with antimicrobial infill and turf disinfectants to prevent bacteria growth and keep your turf sanitary. Not only does it reduce the number of bacteria spread, but it’s also safe for kids of all ages so that you can have peace of mind.
