Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival

ForeverLawn Encourages Play and Exercise at The 2012 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival

ForeverLawn at the Epcot International Flower and Garden FestivalMarch 22, 2012 (Albuquerque, NM) – ForeverLawn, the leading artificial grass company, is once again helping Disney World celebrate the arrival of Spring at its annual Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. This year’s event is being held March 7, 2012 through May 20, 2012, and invites guests to be “inspired by nature at its finest.” According to the Disney World official website, visitors can “watch Disney spring to life with colorful flowers and gardens, dazzling Disney character topiaries, live music, and fascinating programs.” In addition to the entertainment and vibrant displays available at the Festival, children of all ages also have a unique opportunity to exercise and play at the Vibe Rose Garden Playground, an expansive play area measuring over 4,000 square feet that features Playground Grass by ForeverLawn.

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.

Just last year, ForeverLawn made headlines in the synthetic grass industry with its introduction of Playground Grass Ultra, the most technologically-advanced synthetic grass available for playground applications. Playground Grass Ultra features XStatic™ antistatic technology, available only from ForeverLawn, which helps reduce the build-up of static electricity on the playground. For children with hearing devices such as cochlear implants, this can be the difference between playing silently, or being able to hear and respond to playmates and other stimuli in their environment.

ForeverLawn has been the official synthetic grass supplier of the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival for the past consecutive six years. “Partnering with Disney to create this festival is something we look forward to all year,” said Ty Allen of ForeverLawn. “Everything Disney World does is top notch, and it’s inspiring to see Epcot come alive with the incredible flowers, gardens, and topiaries. We are honored to be a part of it.”

The Vibe Rose Garden Playground is just one of the festival highlights. ForeverLawn also helped bring the Pixie Hollow Fairy Garden to life for the second year in a row with its best-selling landscaping turf line DuPont™ ForeverLawn® Select Synthetic Grass. DuPont™ ForeverLawn® Select HD was installed in the Pixie Hollow Fairy Garden due to its natural grass appearance and its ability to handle heavy foot traffic. In addition to the beauty and durability of ForeverLawn that make 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.
