Our Playground Design Process


We support you from start to finish with every aspect of your project

Free initial consultation

The first and most important step of our playground design process is the free initial consultation. During the consultation we will discuss your project, your ideas, your goals, budget and requirements so that we can plan & design a bespoke playground that you will be delighted with.

Project planning

Once we have a full understanding of the scope and goals of your project, we begin thoroughly planning your new playground. During this stage we can advise on planning permission, funding options and safety & environmental considerations, as well as giving approximate timescales for each major milestone of the project.

Bespoke design

Our design process is completely bespoke. After we have fully planned out your project our designers will get to work on on the design of the layout, equipment placement and overall look and feel of the playground and produce high quality CAD drawings.


Custom made equipment

Once the design is complete and you have approved it, we will begin the process of manufacturing the play equipment that we have specified using only the best quality, sustainably sourced materials in our own in house facility.
