Why An Artificial Grass Outdoor Play Space is an Amazing Idea
So let’s go over a few reasons why an artificial grass outdoor play space is such an amazing idea. If you think long and hard, you can no doubt add several other reasons to the list, (like increased property value). However, following are the king of the pile!
No Harmful Chemicals
This should be the only reason you need if you’re concerned about your child’s health and safety. Artificial grass requires no harmful pesticides or fertilizers to keep its lush green appearance. The pesticides are not needed because artificial grass does not contain a suitable environment for hosting bugs. Hence, they move on to other places. And while they still may be present in trees or your container garden, their population will effectively be reduced to zero in your lawn.
Even better, you can rest comfortably at night knowing your water sources are pure. Remember, all of these harmful chemicals have to end up somewhere. That somewhere is your local water source. By switching to artificial grass you are doing your part to make an impact on the environment in a positive way.
No Brown, Bare or Thatched Spots
While this may not seem like a big concern, consider the fact that brown, dead grass eventually gets tracked inside your house. The same can be said with dirt, until it rains. Then those bare spots turn to mud )which is usually irresistible to small children). With artificial grass, however, none of these are a problem. Instead, you get a nice, lush, evergreen lawn your kids can enjoy year round. Even better? The housekeeper gets a break. This is especially relevant if you are that housekeeper!
Artificial grass lends flexibility to your landscape ideas. Do a quick search of the Internet and you will see many creative outdoor living spaces people have designed with artificial grass as a base element. You can find mountains, with tunnels for children to crawl through, or hills with steps and bridges to create a mini obstacle course. If you can grade it, slope it or pile it high, you can cover it with artificial grass. Yet, these creative outdoor play spaces are just the tip of the iceberg. Why not cover one of your exterior walls with artificial grass or a portion of your fence? Then, install tactile games if you have preschool age children. Things that spin, turn, twist, click and slide mounted on an exterior wall or fence section turn the wall into into a preschool wonderland! You will have one amazing outdoor play area!
