With winter snow melting and the spring rainy season on it’s way, it is time to start thinking about how to keep your playgrounds safe and reduce maintenance time and costs. A quick tune up of some key areas can pay big dividends for the rest of the year. Kids love to drag their feet when swinging and they will inevitably leave a rut at the bottom of the slide. A quick and easy solution for loose fill mulch; wood or rubber mulch-is to install swing mats under the equipment.
Divits and holes hold water and create trip hazards resulting in playground injuries. Parents, grandparents, and managers will find that kids stay cleaner and safer when mats are installed.
