Playground Turf

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 200,000 children are treated in U.S. hospital emergency rooms each year for injuries associated with playground equipment. Most injuries occur when children fall from the equipment onto the ground.

Improve the safety surface of your playground or walking trail with Playground Turf, a certified safety surface that increases fall protection.

What is Playground Turf?

Playground Turf is a superior quality, engineered wood mulch fiber material used on playgrounds, trails, walkways, parking areas, and anywhere that active people, especially children, are apt to fall. Our wood chips provide better fall protection than gravel, sand, or rubber matting, and are more cost-efficient than other playground safety surface products on the market. This turf provides ease of mind knowing your family, school or playground has a certified material that Irvine Wood Recovery stands behind.
