Artificial grass for sport and play

The second in our series of playground and play area surface options is artificial grass.


Artificial grass for sport and play

Artificial grass surfacing is ideal for a variety of sport and play activities. It can also be used on landscaping projects and as a lawn replacement.

Artificial grass is specially designed to provide an impact absorbing natural looking finish, complementing its surroundings and maintaining a consistent appearance all year round.

Ideal for use as a play surface, artificial grass provides a strong and durable surface allowing for all kinds of play and is recommended for its soft and comfortable touch. Unlike natural grass that can become hardened during summer months our system retains its characteristics all year round with very little attention.

Artificial grass complements other forms of play surfaces such as wet pour and rubber mulch allowing for greater area coverage when incorporating apparatus into a play area. Artificial grass can also be used on play surfaces were apparatus is installed.

Ideal for sports pitches and multi use areas (MUGAs)

Synthetic grass is also widely used as a sport surface. When compared to natural grass the surface requires little attention and can be relying upon all season.

The artificial grass surface is porous allowing water to drain - removing the chance of water-logging and holding surface water.

The surface does not cause grazing to skin on common impact and will not bake during warmer periods meaning impact absorption is not effected.

DCM Surfaces recommends installing artificial grass on a shock pad layer. This layer provides added impact protection for both sports and play.

Artificial grass is an ideal surfacing option for large areas in schools, parks and private developments. The grass requires very little attention and reduces time and costs required for on going maintenance. The surfaces keeps its natural appearance all year round again reducing the need for fertilising and mowing.
