Have you created a park along with everyone in your community and you are now thinking of ways that you can maintain this park in hopes of having it look great for longer? Or have you just recently started thinking about creating a park in your community because you feel that it would be a great place for everyone to meet at and interact and make new friends because everyone in your neighborhood seem closed off?
Whatever your story may be, it is a great idea but it just as important to maintain your park as it is to build one in your community in hopes of creating a space for everyone to relax and have fun in. But how can you do so? Does your safety surface even need any sort of maintenance? Read below to find out.
Your turf suppliers can help you
You may not have known this but many artificial turf suppliers can help you maintain your park or your playground depending on the kind of surfaces and materials you have used in your park. For example, if you have used real grass, you might have to trim or mow the grass weekly or monthly at the very least and water it every other day to make sure the grass does not dry out and grows evenly but if you have artificial grass, you will have to brush the grass regularly in order to maintain it. Artificial grass is much easier to maintain compared to natural grass as you do not have to worry about mowing it and it is also long lasting as extreme weather conditions such as snow or harsh sunlight does not affect them.

The leaves and trash
Even if you have artificial grass installed, and do not have to bother with trimming it, you will still need to take care of all the fallen leaves from trees located close to your park or the trees that are in your park itself. It is also advisable that you hire a gardener or guard to not only keep watch at the entrance of your park, but they can also help make sure that people do not litter and throw trash or left-over food items that they brought to eat at the park, into the designated trash bins, so that it can be disposed of correctly and even recycled.
Get everyone involved
You may have not thought of this but you can actually get all of the kids and adults in your community to join hands and clean the park on a day when everyone is free and it can even be a fun activity while saving all of you a lot of money!
