...and let our playground designers and playscape specialists help you assess your situation and work with you to develop a plan that gets you where you want to go - in a natural way, toward a Natural Playground.

How to get started

Because natural play concepts can be integrated into almost any outdoor situation, there are many scenarios that might prompt you to investigate them further:

  1. You are thinking about repairing, refurbishing, expanding, or replacing your old or unsafe playground, especially ones that used CCA (arsenic-treated) lumber.
  2. You want to create a more intriguing, natural-looking, green learning environment around your childcare center or school, or in your community that will also serve as an outdoor classroom.
  3. You have or are contemplating building a new school, museum, nature center, or childcare center and want to make sure the outdoor environment is as exciting and inspiring as the rest of your concept.
  4. You are a school district and need to upgrade your entire playground package but want to do it in a way that will inspire the students to learn about and take care of their natural environment.
  5. You would like to have an artist/architect/designer in-residence to work with your students and/or community members on a hands-on project that will enhance their learning experience while creating beauty.
