When choosing turf for a playground, you want something that will keep kids safer, withstand heavy play, and look good doing it. Older playground turf can sometimes bring back memories of a hard, green rubber surface that smells funky on hot days.
Luckily, this isn’t the case with Purchase Green’s playground turf. You won’t find any of that stinky–and unsafe–crumb rubber in our grasses, and we have some of the softest, safest turf available. When helping customers pick artificial grass for a playground, we suggest ones that will be durable and safe for years of fun.
Playground turf comes in a variety of options, so you can be sure you’re picking the one best suited for your project. We have over seven kinds of turf that we recommend for playgrounds, and we even offer systems that include the artificial grass, infill, and shock pads needed for a project. The three grasses in those systems are Vista Sport, Southwestern Sod, and Nature’s Sod.

Grasses like Playscape Pro and Perennial Green are also great choices of playground turf because they are anti-bacterial/microbial, have unmatched fiber strength, and are fully permeable with total surface drainage; Playscape Pro is even anti-static to prevent shocks!
In order to get the best out of your playground turf, pair the grass with protective shock pads and infill that will help you achieve your desired Critical Fall Height (CFH)–the height at which a critical fall injury could occur. If you’re curious to see how our turf holds up, you can read our CFH testing data.
At the end of the day, your playground turf should be safe, durable, and easy on the eyes. When it comes to choosing the best turf for your playground area, our PG experts are always happy to help with whatever your specific project requires!
