Benefits of Artificial Grass
Better Than Grass is designed for long term safety and durability, while giving you the look and feel of a beautiful park setting. BTG grass installations are designed with 100% polyethylene blades. The backing is specially designed to prevent wear and tear while allowing water to percolate through.
The 100% polyethylene blades allow the product to repel stains from salt, animal waste and other challenges that can come your way. The blades are also very soft, which makes for a very comfortable surface.
The grass is made from recyclable materials, so the artificial grass itself can eventually be recycled and used in other plastic products.
The lush full look of BTG grass is so realistic, you would have to look twice before you realized it was artificial. You can further enhance the look through various color choices for pathways or logos for the ultimate playground experience.
With such strict standards on safety surfaces, BTG grass is a wise choice. Safety surfaces are tested and evaluated on two criteria, the HIC (head injury criteria) and the GMAX (force of impaction). CSA standard requires that a safety surface must be lower than a HIC of 1000 and a GMAX of 200. The most recent 12' fall height tests done on BTG grass exceed those expectations with a HIC 780 and a GMAX of 112. What this means is that a BTG grass play area is extremely safe.
BTG grass meets all ADA requirements for wheelchair accessibility. Artificial grass can be installed flush to almost any other surface to maintain a smooth transition. No need to worry about trip hazards, and no wheelchair ramps needed.
When you invest in a safety surface you want one that will last. BTG grass has 20 years of experience in its design. It has been proven on sport fields that receive 80 to 100 hours of play a week. Even if damage or vandalism occur, the area can be easily repaired with a new replacement piece. BTG grass installations are built to last.
BTG grass needs no mowing, weeding, watering, trimming or fertilizer. It won’t work its way under the concrete or between paver stones. It’s impervious to insects, brown spots and crabgrass, so grassy areas stay green and beautiful for years with virtually no maintenance.
Safe and Clean
Better Than Grass doesn’t attract insects, so no dangerous chemicals or pesticides are needed to keep grass looking lush and green. BTG is easy to clean, so it is ideal for pets. The system can also be enhanced with a foam pad to increase fall height protection when safety is a consideration (playgrounds, senior centers, etc.)
