We are constantly looking for ways in which we can make the process of selecting your playground design simpler and more fun. It is sometimes a real challenge to envision the end result, so we have found a perfect solution.

Why Is This a Good Idea?


It allows you to create ideas to scale. Very often we imagine how certain play frames will look and what other playground equipment could fit round it. While we create an image in our mind, it is not often to scale. This allows you to place items within the space that you have available and provides the opportunity of scale.


It also allows the opportunity of interaction and involvement. This forms a pivotal part of the process as we have discussed before. The greater the involvement in the process, the more children will get out of the finished result. They will be invested in the process so will place greater value on it and even the care of the equipment once installed.
