How do I protect the grass in high wear areas?

Clients often use our EcoSmart grass mats to protect grass from wearing on a larger site from turf erosion. This could be as simple as putting a mat at entry and exit points that would otherwise become a bald patch in the landscape over time making the area unsightly.

If you are including a specific point of interest that doesn’t necessarily need fall height protection but will become a feature point, you might also want to protect turf there. Grass mats can provide extra accessibility in these areas. They reinforce the ground and improve drainage, effectively reducing mud and puddling for a safer, more aesthetically pleasing accessible playground.

Clients increasingly request grass matting under seating for those accompanying children at play. This reduces erosion where feet swing and in turn maintenance. They also provide high critical fall height protection to a high standard, meaning kids are safe if accidents and falls do occur.
