What Houzz contributors are saying:
Provide soft landings. Ideal ground covers for play areas are soft and cushioned. Avoid pea gravel at all cost — the pieces are the perfect size for choking. Radel recommends grass, fake grass and padded foam because they cushion falls; hard surfaces like concrete and brick are much less forgiving.
Dye and her team designated a kid-friendly playspace with a tetherball area, sandbox and bamboo stepping stone walk. Unique plants encourage curiosity and exploration with fragrance, massive blooms and tall grasses. Artificial grass here cuts down on costs and water use and allows for complete wheelchair access.
