Residential Playground Turf Products

Discover why SYNLawn Houston is at the top of the list for playground safety surfacing

When it comes to your kids, nothing is more important than their safety. When it comes to selecting the perfect play set, safety is your number one concern. After selecting your kids’ play set consider the playground surface underneath. Most injuries on playgrounds occur as the result of a fall on surfaces that are abrasive, hard or just plain unsafe. That’s where the SYNLawn® Playground System comes in. We’ve developed the safest, most consistent playground surface anywhere. Our system is designed for all types of playground equipment and protects children from falls as high as 12-feet in accordance with IPEMA standards and CSA approved fall attenuation.

There are many options available for playground surfaces. Mulch, pea gravel, rubber or even another artificial grass product have all been used for playgrounds. None of those can even compare to the SYNLawn® Playground System.

Traditional options fall short when it comes to consistent safety protection. Surfaces constructed of mulch, gravel or sand tend to be less safe as time goes by. High foot traffic areas such as those circling the merry-go-rounds, under the swings or at the landing of a slide tend to displace the material exposing the hard ground underneath.

Rubber surface playgrounds do offer more consistent protection. However, these surfaces can create a host of new concerns. In the summer they absorb the heat. In the winter they can become hard and brittle which will compromise the integrity of the protection it offers.

The SYNLawn® Playground System is the only playground surface that provides consistent safety standards in high traffic areas, in any weather, at any height, and under all types of play equipment. Your lawn will have all this, plus the look of beautiful green grass.

While safety is our number one concern, there are many other advantages to using the SYNLawn® synthetic grass Playground System.


Wide Variety of Artificial Turf Products

All of our grass products can be used for play areas. Choosing the right product depends on the playground equipment and application.

Safety built in

The soft padding is installed under the grass and will not be displaced even with high activity.

Non abrasive

No more cuts and bruises at the playground. SYNLawn® is soft to the touch and easy on the skin.

No grass stains

Kids stay clean and out of trouble when mom goes to wash their clothes.


Happier healthier kids. Allergies caused by natural grass are a thing of the past.

Superior drainage

SYNLawn® drains at a rate of 30” an hour. It’s always ready for play, even immediately after a rain storm.

Stable in all climates

Winter, spring, summer and fall SYNLawn® provides protection all year round.

ASTM tested

ASTM HIC approved tested.

Easily replaceable TrampleZones™

Replace only the high-traffic zones without replacing the entire playground.

Installation Options

Playground equipment comes in many forms and is used in many types of playgrounds. The SYNLawn® Playground System is comprehensive, versatile system that allows for ANY type of play equipment. We don’t install one product the same for every piece of equipment.

  • The height of the equipment
  • The areas of high use or TrampleZones
  • HIC (Head Injury Criteria) requirements
  • The customer’s preference of grass products

The height of the equipment determines the highest possible fall from a child playing on the equipment. We then can determine what measures to take when installing the foam padding protection.

The areas of high-use are possible candidates for the TrampleZone replaceable products.

The HIC requirements are necessary for building the right surface to protect against possible head injury to a child. The rest is up to you. We have the largest selection of synthetic grass products to choose from. Simply select the grass you like best or one suited to your region and we’ll take care of building your perfect playground.

TrampleZone package

The patter of little feet can cause premature wear in places around the playground equipment. Instead of replacing the entire playground surface, this upgrade allows you to only replace areas where it needs it. Under swings, around the merry-go-round, beneath the see-saw and the base of a slide are common areas for TrampleZones.

Commercial fall rating package.

Commercial use of the SYNLawn® Playground System is available with certified ASTM HIC tested products for heights up to 12-feet.


SYNLawn® is green on top, in the middle and even underneath. Beyond the color, SYNLawn® goes a long way towards better environmental sustainability which makes it truly “green.” We take measurable steps in providing products that have an extended lifespan, reduce your carbon footprint, conserve water, and use renewable and recycled materials in manufacturing.

Thanks to our exclusive EnviroLoc™ Backing System, SYNLawn’s backing is approximately 60-70% green by weight. The EnviroLoc System is an engineered component system which contributes to environmental sustainability. The first component is the primary backing which helps extend the product life cycle by using 10% less material that is stronger and has superior dimensional stability compared to traditional artificial grasses. Product lifespan is further extended on the face by incorporating nylon 6 in the fibers adding up to 50% longer life. The second component is the secondary backing which incorporates BioCel™ technology. BioCel uses an environmentally-sensitive polyurethane that replaces a large portion of the petroleum-based polymers with soybean oil (renewable resources) and adds Celceram™ (recycled product of coal combustion) for further strength and stability.

Green building and LEED® certification

Using SYNLawn® helps environmentally conscience builders and specifiers with LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) project certification. Using SYNLawn® with EnviroLoc can contribute LEED® points in the areas of Water Efficient Landscaping, Recycled Content, Rapidly Renewable Material and Innovation in Design.

SYNBermuda 211 Review

Years ago i contemplated getting an artificial lawn, but they were so cheap looking and felt the same way. Now I own one and am the talk of the neighborhood. It cleans up quick and looks good year round. one of the better choices i made, and the installation went off without a hitch. it looks the same as the day it was installed.
Author: Fishy

We have had our product for about a year. It cleans up with water and we vacuum it often. The color is good, the feel great. We use it in 1/4 of a water conservative landscape and it is under our 'meditation' tent. We so totally love this product.

I purchase this approximately 4 months ago and the appearance of the grass looks so real and made a huge difference on my front yard.

The SYNLawn distributor installed the product in the front and back yard of our home. The crew arrived on time each day and worked diligently throughout the day. The finished result is fantastic! We are impressed by the number of motorists and pedestrians who pause in front of the house---as well as the number of compliments we receive.

we have had this for a week and we love it! the kids love playing and rolling around on it. Now they are going to have a camp out!!
Author: christina1234

My wife and I have been so pleasantly surprised by the beautiful and realistic looking SYNFescue 354. My son, who plays lacrosse, is grinning ear to ear as his daily workouts are better than ever on the consistent quality turf. The product is durable, low maintenance and eco-friendly. I haven't run my irrigation system since installation and my yard service now only comes once a month to trim bushes and use a leaf blower.

Bought this two weeks ago and our kids love it. It looks great and requires very little maintenance.
Author: anelson89

We put #354 in our "Mud Pits"....our so-called 'lawn' areas that surround our waterfall and have beautiful big trees surrounding them. Obviously, the grass never grew....and we put time effort, and a lot of money, hard work and effort into installing sod, seed, black dirt, lime, etc., etc...... No more! We are absolutely thrilled with the #354. We cannot say enough good things about Chris, our salesperson and install foreman who was so meticulous and careful to cut around each and every boulder. The lawn looks and feels real! We are so happy!
Author: Diane

Synlawn installed Fescue 354 in my front yard about 3 weeks ago. They arrived at 7:30 AM as scheduled and worked straight through until about 2:30 PM when the installation was completed. The team was very professional and courteous and answered all of my questions. Several neighbors have stopped by to give us compliments on how nice it looks.
Author: John

I bought this product a couple of moths ago and i have to admit that it totally meets my expectations. I decided to give synthetic grass as my backyard is right behind a water retention zone and impossible to grow natural grass due to moles,voles, mice name it! I wanted my kids to be able to go outside and have a place to play without worrying about the bad weeds or simply the amount of dirt left everywhere by mole tunnels. Well Synlawn delivers it and i am another satisfied customer. Not only that it looks real but it is clean, comfortable and close to no maintenance and most importantly no fertilizer, no pesticides and no herbicides which is a peace of mind for the kids when they play! I live in the Ottawa area and a special thanks to Synlawn Ottawa's Larry Roy and his team for the perfect installation, awesome! If there is anything i can suggest after my two month experience is that i recommend buying a bristle power brush for weekly maintenance especially if you are surrounded by trees as it makes the job much cleaner and faster as long as getting the fibre grain way up in the air which of course makes your grass look so real! Thanks guys!

We bought this a month ago and we have never been happier. I wish we would have done it sooner
Author: our yard

Ok where to begin, we took out overgrown disaster of a back yard in Brooklyn and ripped everything out. We added Synfescue 354 to the year, over 700 sq ft of it. Installation was not as hard as we imagined, the team arrived early on day one and worked late into the evening, then again the next day. The had to carry everything through the house in buckets, so considering that mess was negligible. The installation guys were very nice, hard working and did a great job. They were able to cut around a tree and make it look natural. So, it take s awhile to get used to the produce, for a start you have a perfect lawn, that admittedly, looks to perfect, I mean who's lawn looks THIS good, but when you get over that, it's really cool. It feels very spongy and soft on foot and lush. I would never have imagined writing that rubout a plastic grass, I mean all my friends laughed at me, then they saw the product, it really isn't your moms plastic grass, this actually looks real close up. We have had some pretty big rainfall since installation and so far it is draining as advertised, no pooling, very good.So, as it stands, very happy, so far so good but remember it's only been a week so early days.

My wife and I were debating on having turf installed in our backyard since we knew natural grass would not work due to competing trees and to much shade. I caaled Southeast Turf and spoke to Scott Marks. He came out and showed me samples of turf and measured property for qoute. The area to be covered was to go around a deck, fire pit, and garden. I did have sticker shock once I received qoute but Scott was able to work with me to come up with a cost that both of us could accept. I signed contract and next thing you know 4 men werer at the house the following week and the turf was installed in one day. My wife and I love it! It looks great and feels wonderful on your bear feet. We are so glad we decided to have Turf installed and that we went with Southeast Turf LLC. to install it.

I purchased my Synlawn grass one year ago. I love it, no water, no gardening expenses and it looks great. My neighbors tell me I have the nicest lawn in my neighborhood. One passer-by asked me what type of grass seed I had used to grow it before realizing it was Synlawn! With the current drout in the central valley, I made a good decision about purchasing my Synlawn and I'm very happy I did!

We had the grass put in about 6 months ago and it is doing great. Our dog loves to scratch her back and nose in it. It is great!

We had SYNLawn installed last summer in our shady back yard where nothing would grow. Absolutely love it! Not only does it look great year round, we have two boys, and all the kids in the neighborhood love playing on it. Mud is no longer tracked into my house. It dries quickly. The kids like that it doesn't itch and there are no bugs. No mowing or watering. No brown spots from the dog. Installation only took a few hours. We constantly get compliments from neighbors and friends. One of the best purchase decisions we ever made.

Bought this product almost 2 years ago, looks great, lots of complements, have been asked more than once how we keep our lawn looking so nice

Several years ago we put SYNLawn in a small section in our backyard and loved it!! Every time you look out the back door the yard is green and beautiful so when the opportunity became available to do the larger section of our backyard I did not hesitate. I called the Clovis office and an estimator came out quickly. Our beautiful lawn was installed by professionals, they answered our questions and did a great job. If you are considering this for your home, I highly recommend it. I have animals that use the first section we had installed and it still looks as good as the day it was installed. I expect nothing less from the new section recently installed. I have just signed up to have my front lawn area done too!! I cannot wait, our house will be the envy of the block and we are being good stewards of out precious resource "water" too.

At first I was a bit leary of having a "fake" lawn, but with the drought and a small backyard, it was the only thing that made sense. SYNLawn was professional and polite, and the backyard looks fantastic. The dogs love it, and it makes our yard feel complete. We are absolutely satisfied with the quality and look of the lawn!

Everything from start to finish was exceptionally done by this firm: contact, responsivness, courtesy, professionalism, timing, installation, tidiness, quality. They delivered what they promised. Are there cheaper products out there ?. Perhaps. I don't know, because I'm extremely happy by how my back yard looks, so I feel I got my money back every time I look at how it looks. Truly an awesome experience...

Our lawn was put in just a few days ago, but two of our grandchildren have already played on it and they had no problem going barefoot. This was one of our concerns so we are so happy about that feature. It looks great, and we are delighted we chose Synlawn.

Our grass was installed a number of months ago and has brought nothing but total satisfaction and compliments. Several friends, having seen our grass, have now become Synlawn customers. The dogs have no complaints adapting to it immediately! The installations went right on time and made what had been a very unever yard a level one for a 99 years old on a walker. This in itself was a true blessing. Sorry I can't ad photos so others can seen how beautiful the large backyard has become. Trees and flowers blend right in. Bravo! to Synlawn for a job well done.

We had 20,000 sq feet of lawn put into syn grass last Aug. We live on a ranch and were contending with watering with well water with too many minerals ( clogging sprinklers) and fighting gophers and lots of maintenance. Love the always mowed look and knowledge that we are no longer taxing our well. It wintered very well too
Author: Glennp

From our initial contact with SYNLawn to the installation and cleanup, we found everyone to be friendly, courteous and knowledgeable about their product. We were particularly impressed by their efforts to insure that we were totally happy with the entire process. We have been so proud of our SYNLawn from day one! And now eighteen months later, as we watch our friends and neighbors fret over the issues of maintaining their lawns during the current drought, we are especially happy to have our beautiful, worry-free lawns. We continue to receive many compliments from our friends, neighbors and even strangers driving through our neighborhood. We love our SYNLawn!
