Surfacing Plans for Safe and Compliant Playgrounds
Your playground surfacing endures a lot of strain from high traffic use to changing weather conditions and everything in between. Without regular surfacing assessment and maintenance, it will cause more expensive maintenance or replacements down the road and possible liability issues. Falls are the leading cause of injuries on playgrounds, but well-maintained playground safety surfaces can mitigate the risk or severity of injuries.
Our playground surfacing maintenance prioritizes the safety of children along with your needs and budgets. We offer parks and schools one-time evaluations, deliveries, and installs or ongoing surfacing plans for stress-free maintenance. As trusted consultants for architects and engineers, we provide comprehensive recommendations on playground drainage systems, surfacing, mats, and borders.

Playground Surfaces for Schools and Parks
As your playground partner, we handle as much or as little of your surfacing needs as you want. We work with your grounds manager or park director to create a personalized surfacing maintenance plan from one-off deliveries or annual maintenance visits.
With years of experience as a playground repair company, we follow a strategic process that improves efficiencies and ensures long-term, reliable results. We promptly evaluate, recommend, and install playground surfacing repairs without unnecessary interruptions and time commitment.
Our Playground Surfacing Process
1. Evaluate surfacing compliance
Our team will visit your playground sites to assess the surfacing, pathways, mats, borders, and drainage system to determine what surfacing needs. Does it only need to be raked and leveled? Should it be topped off with additional surfacing? Is playground resurfacing needed?
2. Provide surfacing maintenance needs
We will present a recommendation for up-front surfacing maintenance to get you back into compliance. Once approved, we’ll work around your park or school schedule to make the repairs.
3. Begin your surfacing maintenance plan
If your school or park would benefit from ongoing playground surface maintenance, we offer flexible plans to meet your needs, including quarterly, biannual, and annual plans.
