A Wooden Climbing Frame installed on artificial grass…
We are often asked to install our domestic and commercial climbing frames onto an artificial grass area.
The answer is yes, however, there are some important factors to consider.
Firstly, do you install the play equipment first or second?
In commercial settings, we need to dig the posts into the ground and set them in concrete. So, for the best finish we recommend installing the play equipment first then the shock pad and grass matting.
With domestic projects, some products sit on top of the ground (e.g. Home Front), while others need digging in (e.g. Action Climbing Frames).
If the play equipment sits on top, then it can often be installed second without damaging the grass matting.
The only caveat is where there is a shock pad underneath. This is the impact absorbing base layer which comes in different thicknesses based on the fall height of the play equipment.
If this has been installed first, then the ‘grass’ may need to be cut so the wood contacts the ground evenly to prevent movement.
