It appears as if the grass was cut on a diagonal, why is that?

Do you have anymore up close pics of this playground? - Ive checked your website trying to find more close ups but couldn't find it. Did you drive big railroad nails through the wood into the ground? Thanks!

We actually use rebar to install the 4x4 surround. Drill through the wood then nail rebar down though it until it is below the wood.

What is the ground cover beneath the playscape? - What is the ground cover beneath the playscape? Is it mulch? If so, what kind? How many inches? How often does it need to be added to? We have an area of backyard at our new home that is completely shaded and there is no grass. Perfect place to do this for our little ones!

Major Mulch Installations
If you're looking to do playground ground cover please consider using a Premium Plus Certified Playground Mulch. I've attached a picture for reference and I'll give you a link to our site so you can see the specifications: http://www.majormulchorlando.com/mulch-types (down at the bottom). Find someone near you with certified playground mulch to keep kids safe!

How did you treat the wood surrounding the play area? - We're in the process of doing this in our yard and are trying to figure out what type of wood to use as a barrier that will hold up to sprinklers, weather, etc. We were thinking impregnated 6"x6" railroad tie type wood, but it looks like yours is narrower.

Age Range? - We would love to have something like this for our grand children, but wonder how long they would actually play on it. Can anyone advise as to what age range these play scapes would be suitable for and if kids tend to lose interest at a certain age?

That is a tough question. I have a play structure very similar to this one and my family uses it a lot. All the kids friends use it too. The ages range between 3 years old and up to teens. The teens use it for an area to sit around and just talk.... all the other kidos play a lot on it. I hope that helps.

Do you have a building plan for this play centre? Is it a package that you purchased? - Looking for a good play centre very similar to this one and need to know if you have a building plan or purchased as a package. Where did you get it and the slides, rocks, ropes, etc.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Traditional
If you have kids, sometimes less is more. A spot for a swing set and a playhouse, plus plenty of lawn space for games, may not win you prizes for your daring design, but this classic approach to a backyard can serve your family well for years.More:Natural Garden StyleFind Your Perfect Patio Design4 Steps to the Perfect GardenGarden Edging: Clean Lines for Your Landscape
