The scope of your playground project will be determined by several factors.
These are some of the questions that will need to be answered to select what’s best for your site.
Shade or sun exposure is an important issue, especially in the south, where the sun and heat can be severe for much of the year. You may want to locate a play area in or near trees, in the shadow of a building, or consider purchasing shade covers and simply cover all or part of them. Determine the path of the sun, especially in the summer, and locate where the harshest heat will occur.
Also, existing or future improvements like sidewalks, drives, shade covers, water fountains, bathrooms, easements, vehicle access, benches and picnic tables should be discussed as well.
Of course, budgetary issues are at the heart of any project. It is essential to determine, as closely as possible, the available funds for the project.
We certainly understand cost issues, and we can help figure out ways to find solutions to your budget concerns and make your project really happen. As you research your own criteria and become more knowledgeable about playground equipment in general, remember that Kidstruction can help you define and itemize costs, offer different ways to proceed with your project, as well as suggest ways to maximize the value for your dollar.
Time and time again, we’ve seen successful fund raising from “pinching pennies” efforts, to car washes, to bake sales. Combine those efforts with your Kidstruction team, and we can make your playground become a reality sooner than you think. We’re firm believers in “where there’s a will there’s a way!”
