Creating an Imaginative Playground with Artificial Turf

One of the most popular recreational design trends is creating a themed playground designed to keep kids creatively engaged and promote imaginative play. The Ladue School District in St. Louis County wanted to create an outdoor camping themed playground to benefit students at Reed Elementary. Angela Grego, the owner of SYNLawn Kansas City, and her innovative team are widely recognized in Missouri for their expertise in playground installations. They were the top choice to bring Ladue School District’s vision to life by installing two large turf mounds, a blue poured-in-place (PIP) river, and several other unique pieces of playground equipment.

The team used 1,865 square feet of SYNLawn’s SYNPro 60 for the unique project. It’s one of the most popular turf styles due to its realistic look and feel, as well as its excellent resiliency and support. It’s also made with UV-stabilized yarns to resist fading from the sun for long-lasting color.

Benefits of Synthetic Playground Surfacing

There are many benefits associated with using synthetic surfacing in playgrounds. Not only do the surfacing materials enhance the aesthetics of the playground, but SYNLawn’s playground options are safe, environmentally friendly, and cost-effective.

Each year more than 200,000 kids end up in the emergency room due to playground injuries. Artificial turf is a safer option than natural surfacing since it has been proven to reduce injury. Faux grass absorbs the shock better than natural grass, which helps lessen the impact of falls.

Reed Elementary will also save money and time with the installation since the artificial turf requires no watering and little to no lawn care maintenance to keep it looking green and beautiful all year long. Plus, no pesticides are required, and it minimizes outdoor allergies, which makes it a safer option for children.

The SYNLawn Kansas City team enjoyed building a creative, and safe playground that students at Reed Elementary will enjoy for a very long time.
