Watersavers Supplies Playground Turf to Local School

June 20, 2019

We all want safe places for our kids to learn and play. This was just one reason why La Tercera Elementary School in Petaluma, California now uses our playground turf in their school’s outdoor learning area. A teacher at La Tercera realized playground turf would be beneficial for her school after installing our artificial turf at her home. She was so pleased with the results that she returned to Watersavers Turf to find a product for La Tercera. We were more than happy to help her find the right playground turf – Cashmere-40 – to best meet the school’s needs. Here are some of the reasons this product works so well for this project.

Commercial Grade Turf Boosts Playground Safety

Playground safety is crucial for all schools. That’s why La Tercera Elementary and other schools often make the switch from traditional sod to our commercial grade turf. Commercial grade turf simply improves playground safety in many ways. First, it drains water fast. This means students are less likely to slip on it after the rain. Once installed, it provides a smooth playing surface. Adding padding beneath the turf further cushions any falls.

Easy Upkeep

The new synthetic grass play space at La Tercera Elementary will serve as a reading, writing, and educational area. This gives students the chance to learn outside. Research shows that children often focus more on lessons held in outdoor settings, because it helps stimulate their minds.

Outdoor learning is enhanced with a comfortable outdoor area but staying on top of traditional sod upkeep can be challenging. Live grass requires time and money to maintain, with regular mowing, weeding, and fertilizing. Artificial grass, in contrast, stays in the same great shape all year long with minimal upkeep. All it requires is a little cleaning from time to time.

Other Uses

This surface option isn’t just ideal for learning and play spaces. Fake grass is also durable enough for sports fields, walkways, and other outdoor school areas. That makes it perfect for districts that need budget-friendly surfaces they can use in many different ways.

Kids Clearly Love Playground Turf

La Tercera let us know that they were thrilled with the outcome after installing our playground turf. The elementary school kids are having a great time on their new playground landscaping.

The school’s grass was patchy and muddy before switching to our playground turf. Due to the uneven surface, they could also get hurt. That’s not a problem with our playground landscaping. Now the students can run all over the space as they please. We are delighted to see them having so much fun!
