How To Choose The Right Playground Surfaces

Playground surfaces play a vital role in the enjoyment and safety of children’s play areas. As a result, you’ll want to ensure that you choose the right material. There are a variety of factors to consider that range from decorative appeal to functionality. With this in mind, we’ve put together a guide on how to make the right decision.

Playground Surface Safety

First and foremost, it’s important to consider the safety of your playground surfaces above all else. You can assess which material is right for this by considering the age range of the children using the area, and the features. If the playground has swings, slides and climbing frames, then it’s safe to say you’ll want a soft and forgiving playground such as mulch.


It’s not just about safety. If you need to maintain this playground surface regularly then you’ll want to consider the functionality of that. If the area is surrounded by a lot of trees, and has features such as sand pits, then it’s important to choose a playground surface that is easy to brush, hose and clean when leaves and other debris build-up.


Environmental Impact

If you’re conscious of the environment and your carbon footprint, then sustainability may be your priority. Fortunately, there is a wide range of playground surfaces that provide safe and easily maintainable functionality for your area. Materials such as recycled rubber can easily be applied as a playground surface. This means you can help the environment whilst utilising a quality material.

Quality Suppliers

Lastly, once you’ve assessed all these elements and decided on the right playground surface for you, then you’ll want to order from a reputable supplier. In order to do this, we recommend assessing the reviews and reputation of potential suppliers, and reading the returns and guarantees they offer. A business that stands by their product is confident it will be appropriate for customers. As a result, you can be confident in their products too.
