The best playgrounds for lasting childhood memories

Do you remember that feeling of swinging from the monkey bars or whooshing down the slide on your favorite childhood playground? Most of us have at least one nostalgic memory of feeling free and having a blast at a particularly well-equipped playground. Childhood and playscapes go hand in hand. They’re pivotal to any school, public park, or recreation center. Designed to encourage imagination and connection in kids, a well-designed playground gives children a place to release pent up energy during the school day and build social skills.

These days, playgrounds are commonly designed with artificial grass turf foundations. The benefits are clear: turf offers a consistently soft, safety compliant surface and a fun, attractive aesthetic that withstands weather in all four seasons. Plus, it’s easy to maintain.

Non-toxic synthetic turf for playgrounds that lets kids be kids

If you’re designing a new playground or remodeling an existing playscape with artificial grass, choose your turf infill wisely. Infill makes near-constant contact with the kids who run, jump, roll, and play on it. It makes sense to select only the safest, cleanest, and greenest turf infill on the market.

Turf infill for safe, clean, and environmentally-friendly playgrounds

At USGreentech, we offer two innovative turf infill products, Safeshell and Envirofill. Both shatter the industry status quo in terms of safety and transparency. They’re made from traceable, certified non-toxic, allergen-free materials. When installed with a high-quality shock pad, they reduce the risk of playground injury due to falls.

Selecting the right turf infill for your playground

Parents, teachers, and public facility managers have growing concerns about the cleanliness and safety of the most commonly used turf infills on the market. At USGreentech, we believe that a better, safer synthetic turf experience is possible. We’re committed to pioneering safer, more environmentally-friendly solutions. We offer two innovative turf infill products that focus on safety, sanitation, and sustainability without compromising on quality.

Introducing Envirofill

Commonly installed at schools, parks, and in sports fields, Envirofill offers unparalleled advantages for children and families.

Benefits of Envirofill:
It’s clean.

Bumps and scrapes are an unavoidable part of playtime. Envirofill minimizes the risk of yucky germ exposure because it’s infused with an innovative antimicrobial agent called Microban®, which helps prevent the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew. Aside from being unhygenic, bacteria can result in stains, odors, and deterioration in artificial grass.

It’s safe.

Envirofill® measures up to rigorous safety standards and consistently tests negative for the presence of toxic and hazardous substances. It’s even exempt from California’s Prop 65 labeling requirements, which protects consumers in California by requiring companies to display warning labels on products with chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.

It’s protective.

Fall protection must be considered in playground design. When used with a playground shock pad, Envirofill assists in providing adequate fall-height protection. It's round properties prevent product compaction, ensuring that your HIC and GMax scores remain similar to the day of install. Learn more about GMAX and HIC here.

It’s attractive, low-maintenance, and drainage friendly.

Envirofill makes any turf surface look like a full, well-maintained grass lawn; the infill is vibrantly green and soft to the touch, even in drought-prone areas. It makes turf carpets in a variety of applications look fabulous. Monthly maintenance is a breeze while the product’s uniquely rounded grain shape promotes hassle-free, efficient drainage.

Introducing Safeshell

The search for the most kid-friendly and environmentally sound turf infill for playgrounds is over. Safeshell® passes every test with flying colors. Made from US-grown walnut shells, it’s even safe enough to eat! Natural, food-grade infill that’s also durable? That’s Safeshell. Now, you’ll never sacrifice quality or performance by going natural.

Benefits of Safeshell:
It’s safe and natural.

Non-toxic and free from allergens, dust, and heavy metals, rest assured that Safeshell is the most wholesome artificial grass turf infill on the market. Made from food-grade crushed walnut shells with a patent-pending process that completely removes allergens, Safeshell is extraordinarily safe for children.

It stays cool.

Another reason Safeshell is a safe bet? It keeps the surface of artificial grass turf cool, which is especially useful on playgrounds exposed to full sun. Overheated surfaces are painful to touch on hot summer days and can be hazardous to children. Learn more about why Safeshell is an amazing turf infill option for playgrounds and homes with kids.

It’s easy to maintain and stays in place.

Safeshell is a low-maintenance natural turf infill product that’s tough, long-lasting, and stays in place better than other natural infills. With a higher grain density, it's perfect in sites exposed to frequent wind and rain. The rounded grain shape resists compaction so you can expect Safeshell to stay in place without affecting drainage.

It looks great.

Safeshell is lush with natural, muted earth tones, so it looks great in any playground landscape.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Envirofill cost?
Envirofill is currently sold into two markets: landscape and sports. We sell to distributors who resell the 50lb bags into their respective markets. Each distributor sets their own pricing. We can put you in touch with the distributor that is closest to you or your project.
How does Microban work?
Microban protection suppresses the growth of microorganisms within the product it covers. When the product surface interacts with microbes, the Microban protection will permeate the microorganism’s cell wall, thus diminishing the cell functions, and making the microorganism unable to grow and reproduce. The Microban protection doesn’t end there. It continues to deter the growth of microbes that cause odor, bacteria, mold, and mildew. Microban has an added benefit of making products easier to clean.
How do I become a distributor?
To become a distributor within the landscape segment, it requires a 150,000lb minimum commitment and followed by a minimum of 150,000lbs annual purchases. We sell direct to sports contractors (fields and tennis courts) who install the Envirofill as part of their sports systems. For these applications, it is shipped in 3,000lb supersacks, palletized, and typically on a flat-bed truck.
How long has Envirofill been around?
Envirofill has been in production since 2005. Envirofill was created with the idea that there must be a better infill product. While crumb rubber is commonly used for sports applications because of its low cost, it has several shortcomings especially in landscape applications: color, shape, lightness and odor to name a few.
How durable is the coating?
The coating on Envirofill is extremely durable. It was designed to withstand the harshest elements. We are so confident in the coating that we have provided a 16-year warranty on the product’s color and coating – the longest warranty of an artificial turf infill. Envirofill has been in production since 2005 and has proven to have a very stable coating. The simplest test to prove its stability is to place the product in a jar of water and shake it. The water will stay clear. We put Envirofill through a number of accelerated wear tests which expose the product to UV rays through warm, cold, and wet cycles over 3,000 hours. The coating has proven to withstand these extreme temperature changes.
