Grass can be suitable for use as a safety surface, subject to inspection and testing. This is a low cost way of allowing you to get more out of your budget and gives your playground a more natural feel.

  • Grass can be used for products with a critical fall height (deck height) of up to 1.5m.
  • A depth test of 150mm will indicate suitability.
  • The soil should contain few stones or hard objects
  • Areas of wear are strengthened
  • The use of the grass surface is monitored
  • A good sward is maintained.
