Durable Artificial Grass

Real grass degrades quickly in high-traffic areas such as playgrounds and play areas, and in winter can render them unusable, so artificial grass for play areas is a great option. Not only is it easier to maintain, but it’s also weather-proof allowing you to use that space all year round.


Customisable Artificial Grass

Our Pro Play 32mm artificial grass is a brighter green than our other products, providing a vibrancy to your play area that encourages adventure. But if you want to inject even more colour, you might consider our Rainbow Range which is a 24mm multi-coloured artificial grass. You can choose how you use the Rainbow Range: select from a gallery of options, create your own design or add your logo. Whatever you choose, there are plenty of ways to make your playground an inviting and exciting place to be, inspiring games and fun.


Nomow Artificial Grass Safety Properties

Pro Play 32mm artificial grass and our Rainbow Range are made specifically for play areas and are widely used in schools, local authority parks and playgrounds where safety is key.

Climbing frames, swings and slides increase the potential for accidents, so it’s important to ensure the flooring you install provides a soft landing. That’s why we offer a shock absorbent underlayer – Eco ShockSafe – a protective underlayer with fall height protection, certified to BS EN1177:2008.

Accidents can also occur when children are running around, so all Nomow products have non-slip properties, even when wet.

Why Choose Artificial Grass For Play Areas?

When it comes to play areas, safety is the paramount concern. Artificial grass excels in this regard, offering a cushioned surface that safeguards children from the impact of falls and tumbles. Unlike traditional grass or hard ground, synthetic turf is engineered with specialized padding and shock-absorbing underlayments that meet or exceed stringent safety standards. This innovative design ensures that even the most rambunctious play sessions are met with a forgiving, impact-absorbing surface, significantly reducing the risk of serious injuries.

Softer Landings for Carefree Play

The carefully crafted composition of artificial grass, with its dense, resilient fibres and meticulously engineered shock-absorbing layers, creates a surface that is remarkably soft and compliant. When children inevitably take a tumble, the turf’s cushioning properties come into play, cushioning the impact and minimizing the severity of scrapes, bruises, and other common playground mishaps. This enhanced safety net allows young adventurers to explore and play with greater freedom, knowing that the ground beneath their feet is designed to protect them.

Certified Safety for Complete Peace of Mind

Synthetic turf for playgrounds is not just any ordinary surface; it is a meticulously crafted and rigorously tested solution that prioritizes safety above all else. Artificial grass products used in play areas are required to meet or exceed the stringent safety standards set by the IPEMA, ensuring they are fit for purpose and capable of safeguarding children of all ages. This certification process involves comprehensive evaluations of impact attenuation, surface permeability, and other crucial safety metrics, giving parents and caregivers the confidence that their playground is a safe haven for active play.

Durable and Resilient: Withstanding the Test of Time

Playgrounds are hubs of constant activity, with children’s boundless energy putting surfaces through their paces day in and day out. Traditional grass and other natural ground coverings often struggle to keep up with the demands of such high-traffic areas, quickly succumbing to wear, tear, and unsightly blemishes. Artificial turf, on the other hand, is engineered to be a long-lasting and resilient solution, capable of maintaining its pristine appearance and functionality for years to come.

Engineered for Durability

The synthetic fibres that make up artificial grass are designed to be exceptionally durable, withstanding the rigours of heavy foot traffic, rough play, and exposure to the elements without losing their vibrant colour or structural integrity. Unlike natural grass, which can become compacted, worn, or patchy over time, artificial turf retains its lush, uniform appearance, even in the face of the most demanding playground conditions. This durability translates to a lower maintenance burden and a longer-lasting, more cost-effective solution for play area surfaces.

Weathering the Elements with Ease

Playgrounds face a constant barrage of weather conditions, from scorching summer heat to heavy downpours and even snow. Traditional grass and other natural surfaces often struggle to withstand these environmental stresses, leading to discolouration, muddy conditions, and even complete deterioration. Artificial turf, on the other hand, is engineered to be remarkably resilient, maintaining its vibrant hue and optimal functionality regardless of the weather. Rain, shine, or snow, the synthetic grass surface remains consistently lush and inviting, ensuring your playground remains a year-round oasis of fun and adventure.

Reduced Maintenance for Carefree Upkeep

Maintaining a natural grass playground can be a time-consuming and labour-intensive endeavor, requiring regular mowing, watering, and the application of fertilizers and pesticides. Artificial turf, however, offers a refreshingly low-maintenance solution, eliminating the need for such arduous upkeep. Once installed, synthetic grass requires only occasional cleaning and rinsing to keep it looking its best, freeing up valuable time and resources that can be better allocated to other aspects of playground management. This reduced maintenance burden allows caretakers to focus on providing a safe, enjoyable, and well-maintained play environment for children without the added stress of constant lawn care.

Enhancing the Playground Experience

Playgrounds are not just about providing a safe space for children to burn off energy; they are also opportunities to create visually captivating and immersive environments that spark imagination and wonder. Artificial grass offers a versatile canvas upon which to craft truly remarkable play areas, elevating the overall experience for young adventurers.

A Lush, Verdant Aesthetic

Natural grass can be a beautiful addition to a playground, but it often struggles to maintain its vibrant, lush appearance, especially in high-traffic areas or under challenging environmental conditions. Artificial turf, on the other hand, consistently delivers a rich, verdant aesthetic that remains vibrant and inviting year-round, regardless of the weather or level of use. This seamless green expanse creates a visually striking foundation upon which to build engaging play structures, colourful equipment, and other imaginative elements, transforming the playground into a verdant oasis that captivates the senses.

Adaptable to Any Terrain

Playgrounds come in all shapes and sizes, with varying levels of available space, terrain, and environmental conditions. Traditional grass and other natural ground coverings can struggle to adapt to these diverse settings, often requiring extensive preparation or even failing to thrive in certain conditions. Artificial turf, however, is a highly versatile solution that can be seamlessly integrated into a wide range of playground environments, from flat expanses to sloped or uneven surfaces. This adaptability allows for greater creativity and flexibility in playground design, enabling caretakers to make the most of their available space and create truly unique and engaging play areas.

Year-Round Enjoyment

Natural grass playgrounds are often subject to seasonal fluctuations, with lush, green expanses giving way to dormant, brown patches during the colder months. This can limit the year-round usability and appeal of the play area, as children may be deterred from venturing out on less-than-ideal surfaces. Artificial turf, on the other hand, maintains its vibrant, inviting appearance regardless of the season, ensuring that your playground remains a hub of activity and enjoyment throughout the entire year. This consistent, all-weather functionality allows children to immerse themselves in imaginative play without interruption, fostering a sense of excitement and exploration that transcends the changing of the seasons.
