It’s called a playground for a reason: sooner or later your kids are going to end up on the ground when they’re playing. Thanks to XGrass playground turf with PolyGreen foam padding underlayment, they’ll land safe and sound. XGrass is far softer and safer than mulch, sand or natural grass and is practically maintenance-free.

All-Purpose Backing

Silverback™ urethane coating with EcoCell™ offers unmatched strength, improved dimensional stability and superior flexibility.

This antimicrobial, non-toxic, non-flammable infill stays cooler and lasts longer than other infill materials.

Installation Cross Section

Over Aggregate Base with Mulch Border

Another common installation for home playgrounds utilizes a natural-looking mulch border. These systems typically feature an XGrass playground turf product along with ¾” of infill and PolyGreen foam pad placed on top of a compacted stone base and geotextile barrier. The padded base provides the impact attenuation properties ideal for making a play area safer.

To add stability, we recommend using 24” stakes around the perimeter and then attaching pressure treated support boards that will accommodate the nail or staples used to secure the turf.
