One aspect of being a proud homeowner is keeping a beautiful yard that you enjoy using. If you are a parent, sometimes children’s playgrounds can cause damage to the backyard you’ve worked so hard to maintain. So, what are your ground protection options for protecting against running feet all summer long?
Traditional methods of protecting your grass involve entirely changing the yard itself. You can lay mulch over the grass to protect the yard. However, the designated play area is then covered by wood or rubber chips that then take away from the grassy area you have worked to maintain. If grass does come through the mulch in the future, it results in a messy look that requires hours of weeding and maintenance. Pour-in-place rubber is less maintenance, but more expensive and takes away from the natural-feeling retreat you’ve created.
Grass Mats Can Make a Difference
With these issues in mind, our grass mats were created differently. The rubber mats still provide a cushioned landing for kids at play, but the design is revolutionary for your yard. With an open hole design, there is less surface area to become a potential burn waiting to happen like pour-in-place. Also, unlike wood or rubber mulch, our grass mats can’t be tracked all over your yard or even brought into the house. One of the most significant differences though is what they do for your yard itself. Its design allows grass to grow through the holes in the mat, which creates less of a disruptive presence in the landscaping. It keeps kids feet from tearing up the grass and ruining the yard underneath it, and most importantly, keeps them safe with a softer, nonslip surface to be on while enjoying your backyard playground.
Who benefits from Grass Mats?
Anyone who has children playing in the yard or lots of outdoor traffic will benefit from our grass mats. Besides providing a layer of safety, they keep your yard looking magazine worthy.
