Artificial Grass Landscaping Idea no 3: Children’s Play Areas

Children’s games aren’t usually the cleanest, they like to get down and dirty to experience their playtime. However, there’s a difference between making a mess and destroying the garden, not to mention a time window… experts say your lawn will start to be damaged after just 6 hours of play. Then, if it’s not given the time it needs to recover, it will pretty soon start looking like Shrek’s swamp! 

Most children like to play football or catch in their garden, but the lawn damage from ball games is a nightmare. Especially things such as muddy patches from where the grass has worn down and stopped growing completely. We get it, kids love playing games so there needs to be a happy medium – If you are having persistent trouble with your lawn, then it might be time to consider artificial grass.  

They are great to use under climbing frames or use offcuts for a Playhouse. Artificial grass is a softer surface, making it safe for children to play on… it also takes a lot to damage it. It’s the perfect solution to child proof your lawn.
