SITE PLANNING

When planning to create a new play area there are many factors to be considered. We know that every playground is different. Every playground has different landscape features such as: size, shape, terrain, drainage, shade, and even climate that can affect the usability of a playground. At Playgrounds Etc, we have the knowledge and experience to help you design and utilize your space in the most efficient manner possible.

SAFETY PLANNING

Since safety is at the forefront of our industry, we strive to go above and beyond to ensure that our playgrounds meet, or exceed, all consumer safety guidelines. We would be happy to visit your site and give suggestions on ways to create a safer play environment. Playgrounds Etc. is proudly in compliance with Consumer Product Safety Guidelines, Americans with Disabilities Act, and Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.

BUDGETING

The challenge of building a new playground can be a difficult task. Don’t let a limited budget bring you down. We have seen many playgrounds created even when funds seemed nonexistent. Through these experiences we have gained the knowledge of how to raise funds in many different ways. For those of you on defined fixed budgets let one of our consultants create a plan to phase in your new playground. Phasing in involves starting with the core of the playground and each year, or as funding becomes available, adding more. Phasing in gives you the chance to replenish your budget while still giving your kids a great place to play.

FINANCING

There are many costs to consider when creating a new play space. Most people only consider the cost of equipment and create their budget around equipment cost alone. Several things to keep in mind when budgeting for a new playground are installation, surfacing, and freight which are all things that can potentially drive up the cost of the project. These costs can seem like a bank breaker, but don’t worry! Our finance program can finance 100% of your dream project with little to no money down. Getting started is as simple as filling out a short credit application, and you will be on your way to designing the play scape of your children’s dreams.

SITE MAPS

PLAN VIEWS

A plan view is a site map which gives an exact footprint of each play structure with detailed measurements and descriptions of each component. A plan view is invaluable when installing a playground.
