Playground Soft Surface – Planning Your Playground

Playground soft surface flooring is ideal for parks, school playgrounds and outdoor activity centres. However, as with any new build, modification or renovation, planning your new surface is essential. Follow these tips to ensure you get this crucial stage right before you give the go ahead for the rubber surface to be installed.

The first thing you need to think about when planning for new playground surfaces is your budget. Knowing what you have to spend will make planning with your flooring contractors much easier. Once you have a budget, the next thing you need to do is set your priorities. Your contractors are there to support you in this, but only you know exactly what is most important. For example, an area that has been singled out as particularly dangerous must take priority over colourful new paths in an already safe, flat area. If you are starting from an entirely blank slate, you will have to set your priorities for surfacing accordingly. If an adventure playground is high on your list, for example, then wet pour rubber surfacing in this area should be a priority over a refreshed surface in the tennis courts. Your schedule for the completion of the work will also need to figure in your planning. If there are several jobs to be carried out, then your surfacing contractors need to be able to work with other contractors to complete everything in the right order. This is one of the reasons why you need to be sure of your plans before work starts.
