PLAYGROUNDS

Playgrounds. They are the playscapes that lead to the Land of Make-Believe. This is where daydreams ignite that fire which inspire children to become: doctors, lawyers, firemen, inventors, scientists, astronauts, writers, teachers, police officers, engineers and even famous athletes. Our future business leaders of America will grow up on playgrounds.

And nothing beats that Sand-Box Love, Pinky-swears, Hop-Scotch, Miss Mary Mack, Tag-You’re It! It’s what we did as youngsters. Running, jumping, chasing. You probably met some of your very best friends out on the playground, chasing each other ‘round the Merry Go Round.

Playgrounds set the stage for so many things in life. Learning about love and friendship, it’s where stories begin, essentially the writing of memories that will last a lifetime. Kids begin to learn about socializing, making new friends, and become a part of group; sometimes they go off by themselves to play, investigate, and explore their imagination, defining their own independence.

Synthetic Playscapes

Remember when you were in elementary school? What was your favorite time of the day? Recess!!!
Couldn’t wait for recess! It gave you the freedom to go outside and run amuck all over the playground! Swing on the swings, slide on the slides, race to the jungle gym and whoever got there last was a rotten egg.

Playground Surfacing – Residential & Commercial Benefits

● Long-term safety for children
● Fall safety up to 9 feet
● Soft, non-abrasive surface for no skinned knees
● No more mud or dirt tracked inside
● Deters bugs and pests
● Green all year around

National Greens’ synthetic grass for playgrounds offers a graded surface with a thick foam cushion that is hidden beneath its surface. Then its long fibers a filled with small shock absorbing rubber pellets that provide a soft pillow like cushion when falling. Tougher than real grass, safer than real grass.

Our playgrounds are built to very high standards, and safety is priority one in every design. Even long, luscious real grass conceals a hard layer of earth and stone beneath. To fall on this kind of ground is rather painful; in the worst case, it can cause serious injury.

Modern playgrounds require modern equipment, surroundings and accommodations. Our playground turf can be installed with new or pre existing equipment. We can also supply the equipment needed for any playground. Artificial grass provides a far superior protective ground surface for outdoor play areas, particularly areas with climbing frames and raised play equipment.

No room for playground equipment? Let us design a custom play area for your family. Kids can play in a safe environment free from allergens, pesticides, mud and stains. These play areas are built to the same standards as our full size playground safety specifications and can have equipment added at any time.

Playground Artificial Grass

This diagram shows the general construction and layers of our Synthetic Playground surface.

● Once the dirt surface is shaped and planned to desire we compact the surface and pin Geotextile Fabric over the complete synthetic playground work surface.

● Next, we create the static base of the playground by laying layers of Crushed Granite in finer grades until it resembles formed concrete. The granite surface it constantly soaked and compacted to insure the surface is uniform and solid. Once completed the surface acts as a solid slab of granite ensuring a perfectly flat playing surface that lasts the life of the playground.

● A Shock Absorbing Foam Pad is then applied and bonded to the entire playground surface (different fall height options available). This gives a resistance to injuries and concussions.

● The Synthetic Playground Turf is then applied to the foam base.

● Silica Sand is evenly and lightly applied to the surface of the field and brushed in to allow the fibers to stand up straight. After the first layer of sand is finished a thick layer of Granulated Rubber is applied. This creates a “youth and equipment” safe, playing surface that provides excellent drainage as well.

This creates a “pre-k youth and equipment” safe, playing surface that provides excellent drainage as well.

Playground Design Process with Artificial Turf

Whether your playground is for a school, a daycare center, a church, or a community play park, at National Greens, we understand that environments influence our perception of the world around us, just as colors can affect our mood. We understand that different age groups need and require different spaces. Allow our team to design an environment that encourages child development. We can provide the place that inspires the imagination and artistic abilities in those youngsters seeking adventure. A safe space for exploration of their fertile little minds.

Playgrounds and play parks promote exercise, skill-building, improves balance and coordination, stimulates brain function which increases their mental processes and I.Q.’s. Let us lay the groundwork for children’s exploration, incorporating colors and textures. We can even create a layout with multi-colored turf squares for hopscotch and incorporate colored sand for sandboxes!

Our team pays close attention to the regulations and strictly adheres to the safety standards for the Fall Height recommendations. Our playground turf layouts can cover the hard, unforgiving ground, providing softer landing spots in case of trips and falls, which can minimize broken bones, bumps and bruises.

Let our professional designers be a part of the movement that inspires greatness for the next generation of children who will soon become adults, like you and me. Let’s help our kids lead the way to a better future, by doing all we can to excite their hearts and inspire their minds. Let us design those fun playscapes! We can make it real.
