VISTA, Calif.- EasyTurf, Inc., headquartered here, has been selected by playground industry leader KOMPAN North America, Inc. to be the exclusive supplier of artificial grass for its nationwide playground construction projects.

In recent years, synthetic turf has become the preferred landscape design solution for playground applications, surpassing sod and other natural landscape products. EasyTurf synthetic grass received the highest IPEMA safety certifications and KOMPAN, recognized these marketplace demand factors.

At KOMPAN North America we are dedicated to creating exceptional play environments that promote healthy opportunities for users of all ages and all abilities,” says Jay Cooke, KOMPAN Vice President Sales, North America. “It is critical that our supplier partners offer a product that is superior in performance, while also delivering a clear and meaningful difference within their category."

Applications for artificial grass surfacing on playgrounds and in recreational areas continue to grow throughout North America. Artificial turf, originally known for its sports field and golf course applications, has experienced a boost in popularity in the commercial and residential landscape sectors as well as in school, daycare and pet facilities. Costly maintenance and water rate increases have also driven the switch to artificial grass for municipal landscapes and pet facilities.

“Becoming the exclusive artificial grass supplier to KOMPAN because of our industry-topping quality is an exciting opportunity,” says David Hartman, EasyTurf President. “EasyTurf has been recognized for many years as the leader of the artificial grass landscaping industry, and we are pleased to embark on this coveted joint venture with KOMPAN.”
