A natural playground is the one that promotes playing through natural settings. The benefits available in a natural setting can’t be found in a conventional setup. Allow your kids to be more creative by exposing them to natural setups. Don’t dictate them what and what not to play, but do take safety measures for them.
You also need to make sure the surface fill is laid down right. While this differs depending on what type of fill you are using, you can safely assume that any loose surface fill will need to be about a foot deep. And loose means loose-never pack it down when laying it in.
Keep a very close eye on plastic to see if it has gotten weak, and run your hand over wooden surfaces to check for spots that may need to be sanded. Metal materials, on the other hand, typically show visible wear when they deteriorate.
Second, always make allowance for more space. Therefore, the floor should extend to over six feet beyond the play area. If the fort is above 4ft, it would be a good idea to not leave the guard rails open. Keep them close together to disallow the kids from getting their head stuck in between them. For kids that are of school age, make sure that the railings are above thirty eight inches (38in) and finally make sure that you have enough space that can grow as your child grows.
The equipment has to be both proposed and planted very vigilantly. There has to be a proper division of the play area for all age groups like toddlers, pre school students, small children and adolescents. When the plan is to make a large commercial playground one should know that for example the toddler equipment cannot be placed near to the skate board parks.
Nowadays over 80% of public playgrounds have some sort of protective surface around the equipment. Backyard playground are much different – only about 9% of home backyard playgrounds have any sort of protective surfaces, and most have only grass or dirt.
