Nice post! Haha, lucky for me, I have a swing-set that is similar to yours, so I'm going to have to steal your design =P One question, whenever I see astro-turf it always comes in like the pre-grass form. That just looks like a green-carpet type of astro-turf. Please clarify the type, because I don't want to be the idiot buying the wrong type of turf

The stuff we got was like 40 cents a yard. It is very sparse and you will see the matting in between the grass/carpet blades.
The blades are more of a plastic rather than a fabric if that makes sense.

Here are some pics of the different types I found: we choose the one in the middle

Does it have a specific name though? Because when I went to home Depot, their is like 6,000 different types of it, and I don't know which kind will work, and which kind wont.

I got it at Menards and it is just called indoor/outdoor carpet.
Some of the forum members said just get the cheapest stuff and the one that was the least dense.
As you can see in the pics the blue is most dense, then the dark green, and least dense was the lighter color green. I hope that helps you out.

I'm thinking more like this:

Beaulieu Mainstream Ivy Green Outdoor 12 ft. Carpet Store SKU # 273076

As it is 12 foot wide and I just cut mine into 3 4 foot wide strips IE 3 pieces of 12X4 strips
