After creating these playgrounds and landscaped areas for the festival eight years in-a-row, I am always proud of how well our synthetic grass products perform in such a high-traffic situation, and of how amazing the grass looks after all of that use.

ForeverLawn, the leader in artificial grass, has once again joined with Walt Disney World to create safe, attractive landscaping and play areas at the 2014 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. In its eighth consecutive year as the official synthetic turf provider of the festival, ForeverLawn supplied and installed over 8,000 square feet of artificial turf for the event. The technologically superior synthetic grass by ForeverLawn was chosen for a number of different exhibits and play areas at the festival, including the popular Monsters University playground, which features multicolored Playground Grass, and Tinker Bell’s Butterfly House, with DuPont™ ForeverLawn® Select HD. The Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival runs from March 5 through May 18, 2014.
ForeverLawn provided its Playground Grass safety surfacing for the Monsters University playground. The interactive children’s play zone features large topiaries of Sulley and Mike Wazowski, characters in the Disney movie “Monsters University,” with paw prints made from yellow and blue synthetic grass embedded into the playground surface.
As in past years, visitors to the playground provided positive feedback to festival employees. Many parents commented on the realistic appearance of the grass, and asked for information about incorporating ForeverLawn synthetic grass into their yards, schools, and communities.
Another highly-anticipated exhibit at this year’s festival is Tinker Bell’s Butterfly House, presented by HGTV Imagination Walkway. ForeverLawn installed its DuPont™ ForeverLawn® Select HD product in this exhibit, which provides an attractive, durable surface for the high-traffic area. With an expected two million visitors over the course of the festival, the ForeverLawn grass withstands the traffic and remains beautiful and consistent with little maintenance required. ForeverLawn synthetic grass is also featured in the Cars-themed playground, the HGTV meet and greet area, and the World Soccer Photo Op, featuring Goofy.
“We love the positive feedback we hear from Disney and their guests about our grass,” said Ty Allen, ForeverLawn. “After creating these playgrounds and landscaped areas for the festival eight years in-a-row, I am always proud of how well our synthetic grass products perform in such a high-traffic situation, and of how amazing the grass looks after all of that continuous use.”
Playground Grass is a remarkably realistic artificial grass product that features a multi-layered safety system beneath the grass to maximize safety. Certified safe for fall heights up to 12 feet according to ASTM 1292 test standards, Playground Grass is also ADA-accessible, which provides equal play opportunities for children of all abilities, as well as a stable, even surface for wheelchairs, braces, and strollers. The durable synthetic grass has been an ideal surfacing solution for the festival over the past eight years, due to its ability to withstand incredibly heavy traffic and still look lush and beautiful.
DuPont™ ForeverLawn® Select Synthetic Grass is an innovative line of artificial turf that goes beyond the current offerings in the turf industry to provide an incredibly realistic look and feel. Providing a lush, well-manicured appearance, the synthetic turf features a low-sheen, multi-colored blade structure with a unique tan thatch to enhance the natural grass presentation. Developed on the ForeverLawn proprietary product platform, the turf utilizes a durable monofilament fiber that can withstand the wear and tear of heavy traffic. DuPont™ ForeverLawn® Select Synthetic Grass also offers the ForeverLawn premium backing system and requires minimal infill, for a long-lasting, low-maintenance, high-quality option to almost any landscape application.
In addition to the beauty and durability of ForeverLawn that makes it an ideal surface for a busy festival, the grass products do not harbor insects and are allergen free. ForeverLawn does not require water, fertilizers, weed control chemicals, lawn care equipment, or pesticides to maintain its appearance, which makes it an attractive alternative for commercial and residential properties as well.
ForeverLawn provides innovative synthetic grass products to create better landscapes worldwide. In areas where real grass is difficult to grow or maintain—due to high traffic or poor conditions—ForeverLawn offers a realistic alternative that is beautiful, functional, and durable. In addition to its landscape lines, ForeverLawn also offers specialty products including K9Grass, SportsGrass, Playground Grass, GolfGreens, and SplashGrass.
