We all know how important play is for children, but have you ever been put off purchasing play equipment for your garden because those garish primary colours make your garden look less than welcoming for anyone who isn’t a child? Playground equipment that is great for children does not have to be bright and garish. Choosing natural playground equipment could be the perfect alternative when you want to retain the natural look for your garden but still want to provide great play equipment for your children to play on.
Easy on the Eye
Not only is wood a natural material, but it is also beautiful to look at. Here at PlayEquip, we offer highly durable natural wooden playground equipment perfect for any home garden, park or public space. With our equipment, even inner-city homes, where there is little green space can have the delight of natural wooden equipment in their backyard.
With natural playground equipment, parents no longer need to give over vast expanses of space to equipment and furniture that spoils the natural lines of their garden. Choosing natural wood allows synergy with the rest of the garden that is difficult to achieve with plastic.
Wood also offers a durable, high-end feel that, combined with other natural wooden features such as planters, seating and dining equipment and even fencing, means your children’s play equipment need not become an unintended focal point. And natural playground equipment is something that all the family can enjoy too. If you are young at heart or enjoy exercising outside, we have some great natural outdoor fitness equipment that can be used by young and old alike.
Playground equipment shouldn’t be all about how good it looks, but given the choice, many of us would rather eschew the blocky, bright equipment for something rather more natural. In reality, natural wood is often the more practical choice too. It offers years of faithful service and is easy to keep clean and sustainable, making it possible to achieve a ‘green garden’ without disappointing the children.
Kind to the Environment
People are recognising the detrimental effects that man-made materials like plastic are having on our planet and taking steps to reduce their plastic use.
Whether it’s biodegradable products, reusable shopping bags or even play equipment, people are looking for sustainable sources. By choosing a natural outdoor playground equipment made from sustainable sources, you’re taking small steps towards protecting our planet for future generations to come!
Encourages Physical Development
It may seem obvious, but it’s one of the most important benefits of natural outdoor playground equipment for your garden.. By encouraging children to spend time outside playing, climbing, jumping and running; playground equipment will benefit the physical health of children. Wooden outdoor playground equipment encourages social and psychological development promoting creativity and improves communication skills.
Our wood and steel equipment is ideal for gardens where green space and trees are unfamiliar sights to many young children, particularly in urban environments. Wooden equipment brings a vitality that children do not get from modern plastic alternatives, allowing them to interact with the natural materials of the world. Feeling different textures and the warmth of stunning wild oaks is something that could be unfamiliar to some, yet natural play equipment can redress the balance.
Playground equipment made from natural materials will encourage children to connect with the environment, explore and become more aware of nature. This is particularly important in today’s society, where many children would rather be inside playing on a technological device rather than exploring the outdoors.
