Our background in construction and safety drives us to building the absolute safest playground possible. Often time’s budgets will dictate what we can and can’t use for the surface of a playground, but instances where we are asked to use a surface we are not confident in, we decline the project. Jon and I said from the very first conversation of starting Creative Playscapes, if it’s not safe, we won’t do it. We stand by that and will never view child safety any other way.
The playground surface or play area is typically where most injuries occur, the incorrect surfacing for the play structures involved will escalate the opportunity for injury. Jon is the master at determining what playground surface materials we use; he cringes at the thought of concrete unless it’s a walkway. Sand & gravel is another playground surface he is very particular in placing. Some things just naturally work well together (like me and Jon) while others just invite issues. Jon has researched the variety of playground surfacing products available and understands what is safe and which surface should be installed with every play structure we install. I depend a lot on Jon and his expertise; he has never let me or a customer down!

200 thousand children visit an emergency room each year from playground related injuries that number increases to 500 thousand if doctor visits are included. We strive to reduce that number by installing the safest playgrounds and surfaces possible.
Safety Starts w/ Stability!
