Clean & Safe Playground Surfacing that Kids Love

As a company that was essentially founded on the concept of keeping kids safe, we have developed a number of innovative solutions to help schools, parks and facilities extend the safety of their playground surfacing beyond the equipment area.

A Complete and Safe System

The Perfect Turf grass icon

Using our knowledge and experience from designing and building both playgrounds and athletic fields, we developed a synthetic grass product line ideal for these applications. Our distinct fibers create fields that are soft to the touch, but utilize a highly durable thatch layer that provides the support and durability for even the toughest applications.

Innovative Designs

Once we have specified the perfect turf for your field, our team at Lanmark Designs can work with you to bring your space to life.

We don’t want to be the “hottest” product on the market. With Heat Block color options, our turf is 17.5° F cooler than the competitors’ artificial grass systems.

Shine Block blade profiles reduce the reflective quality of the fiber allowing our grass to appear more like a healthy, well-trimmed, natural lawn.

Over Aggregate Base with Concrete Border

Since Open Play Fields can serve a variety of purposes - from basic play areas to recreational fields for playing kickball – there is an array of turf products and construction methods available.  This image shows an optional PolyGreen foam pad with uncoated sand infill.

When installed with a concrete border, the turf can be nailed or stapled into the pressure treated support boards and then covered with Envirofill infill to give the turf a more natural appearance and limit any movement or shifting of the turf.

With three young children and plenty of space at their countryside estate, this couple tasked us with bringing the fun home to their little slice of heaven. By working with our sister companies Tour Greens, VersaCourt and Ball Hog, we were able to create a little something for everyone in the family.
