Synthetic Turf: Things to Consider

Are you thinking about a synthetic grass product for a playground area? Why not try our No Fault PlaySafe 50 Turf System product!

It can be hard to know where to begin the search. Schools and municipalities need sustainable, safe and versatile solutions. More and more they’re relying on synthetic turf — especially given the huge improvements in appearance, safety and playability in recent years. But is it affordable? Is it a good long-term investment? Most important, is it safe?

Parks and schools are taking another look at synthetic grass to give them water-saving, low maintenance play surfaces suitable for children and adults of all ages and abilities.

No Fault PlaySafe 50 Turf System


Our synthetic turf looks like the artificial turf you’ve seen before, but it's specially constructed to withstand the demands of children at play. It's built with a 50 oz face weight and 1.5" pile height.


What is your budget? What is your play area like? How will it be used? A reliable No Fault surfacing representative will discuss these considerations with you. The staff at No Fault is here to help you plan a successful project—even if our product isn’t the one you ultimately choose.

Cost Considerations

Do you think replacing natural grass with synthetic sport turf is expensive? Think again! Yes, there is an initial investment with synthetic turf. But the cost of ongoing maintenance is virtually eliminated. Consider that No Fault Sport Group’s synthetic turf products generally have an 8-10 year lifespan. How much money do you spend in ten years on mowing, irrigation and fertilizing?

There’s also an environmental benefit: No mowing, weed-eating and edging means no noxious fumes. Plus not having to water means municipalities and schools can save hundreds of thousands of gallons of water each year.


Rainfall is your best friend in keeping synthetic turf clean. If you have more tenacious messes or stains, you can try using a broom, vacuum cleaner, leaf blower, or water hose. A pressure washer may be used in accordance with the manufacturer’s equipment recommendations. Surface stains can be removed with an all-purpose cleaner and a scrub brush.

Don’t worry about snow and ice; it will melt and drain off the turf system and evaporate. Do you have harsh winters where you are? A snow plow with rubber tipped blade may be used if necessary. The plow is typically mounted on a jeep or light tractor.

For information about repairing minor seam openings, cigarette burns, and other issues that can arise, refer to our maintenance guide (PDF).
