Building Memories with the Perfect Playground
When you look back on your childhood, the playground is one of those memories that stick out. It was a place where a swing became a spaceship, a see-saw became a catapult, and slides were well, slides.
If you have children of your own, you’d like for them to have the same fun you had on the playground, minus a few of the scrapes and bruises you picked up along the way. For parents looking to build a safe and fun playground, consider these tips:
- Use turf Artificial residential grass provides a natural-looking and feeling alternative to grass. Premium artificial turf is more resilient than grass, providing a durable, attractive and safe surface where children can play. Unlike natural grass, artificial turf requires no watering or mowing, making it a great choice for a playground.
- Safety first Be on the lookout for protruding bolt ends or hooks. Also make sure that there is plenty of room between guardrails, ladder rungs, and other openings to prevent children from getting stuck.
- Consider your audience Younger children will need easier playground equipment, while older children will quickly bore of kiddie gear. If you’re building a playground for older children, add more challenging components, like balance beams or a tire swing.
- Use the right wood Make sure your wood hasn’t been treated with hazardous chemicals. Aim for using fresh, pressure-treated lumber that’s kid-friendly and splinter free.
