Planning a Sustainable Play Space

There are many aspects to consider when planning and designing an eco-friendly, natural playground. Design teams and planners will want to know how to prioritize based on certain issues: what the materials are made out of, how the materials affect the local landscape, whether or not they embody a natural theme, whether or not the items are sustainable and fiscally responsible, or whether the site itself can be positively impacted. This can lead to a series of questions and then several lists of pros and cons. For instance, rubber mulch surfacing is recycled, but engineered wood may be more biodegradable should the pellets escape the bordered-in area. Wooden playgrounds may have that “green” feel, but their logs, planks, and beams will need to be replaced every few years. It’s these types of concerns that our team can discuss with you to find the best solution that meets your community’s goals by prioritizing what’s most important to the project as a whole.

Finding the Best Natural Playground Equipment

Administrators trying to create green playgrounds typically organize their focus on three major areas: the play structure itself, the free-standing components, and the surfacing. The surfacing often gets the most attention, as it can affect the nearby groundwater. Play structures can be made of many different kinds of materials, and free-standing components can often be made of recycled materials as well. Natural playgrounds are created after taking the time to research and learn about each component, type of material, and area of your space and then organizing them in a way that’s aesthetically pleasing.
