Synthetic lawn is the ideal choice for playground areas where real grass won't grow. With real grass, there are many limiting factors such as shaded areas under trees, water restrictions, climatic conditions, and high traffic areas from too many little feet. Then you have on going maintenance costs such as mowing, fertilizing, watering, replacing worn out sections of grass and irrigation repairs. These costs can add up to a signifigant amount at the end of each year and could be money spent in other areas.
Synthetic lawn is low maintenance and can easily be cleaned off with a leaf blower. The lawn can also be raked and this also helps the pile to stay upright as well as removing leaves. These days, most synthetic lawns are UV stabilized and have very good colour retention but there are some imported brands which are not designed for the harsh Australian climate and will fade and lose their true colour within a few years. Playscape Constructions only uses high quality products specifically designed to suit the Australian climate with a high UV stabilization. The lawn is designed to drain water through it into the sub soil making it a more practical play surface after rain.
Synthetic Lawn has many uses in the play ground and can be used around play equipment with certified shock pads placed under the grass creating a soft fall area. The lawn can be installed over new or existing concrete and makes a comfortable area for children to sit or play. Existing grassed areas can also be replaced by synthetic lawn and requires similar preparation to brick paving. The lawn can also be installed in a room with coloured shapes and designs which are added to make a bright and interesting play area. Mini putting greens can be designed to suit most playgrounds and adds another dimension to the learning and playing experience. They can be custom designed to fit in with your existing play structures and can range from one hole to several holes depending on the available space. We include removable flags and hole caps as well as all accessories. Any shape can be created ranging from contours to straight sided and even sandpits can be added which give the impression of a bunker.
