For the play space itself sew a hardy type of grass that can stand up to a little abuse and consider having cedar chips laid underneath climbing frames and swings to cushion any falls.
Setting Boundaries – If your backyard currently lacks a good boundary system – a fence or hedges – make sure that they are added during the construction of the playground. These boundaries keep the kids in and strangers out as well as defining the area of play.
Check out those big trampolines they have available these days for another thrill-center in your yard. Children love trampolines, and models like we couldn’t have imagined in our childhood are available these days at prices that will really blow your mind. Make sure that you follow all the safety requirements and keep children from jumping more than one at a time because there are some serious risks involved with using a trampoline improperly.
Easy maintenance – Playground rubber flooring can be used both indoors as well as outside. Rubber flooring resists dust, allergens and even water. This means that liquid spills will not damage the floor surface. Because of its high resistance, mold and fungi will not be able to anchor to your floors either. You can sweep your playground floor, or wash it with a mild soapy solution. Never use harsh cleaning agents or chemicals.
Now by this I mean if your children are under the age of three you will not want to get a playground set that will sit for three years until they reach the age that they will enjoy the outdoor play set that you spent large amounts of money on. However, if they are older then you will want to take into consideration all the available features that it has that will keep them playing on it for years to come.
Durability – There is very little point in investing time, money and effort into creating a backyard playground if you are then going to stock it with fragile plants and shrubs that will inevitably serve as kid magnets and get destroyed.
