Developments need playgrounds.
Fun for one. Fun for all.
How We Work With Developments
We frequently enjoy collaborating with landscape architects on subdivisions and developments. The playground can be built as large as you can imagine, or designed in stages to meet your yearly budget. Whether you already have a concept or just know that you need a playground, we will meet your need, style, goal and budget. We work to incorporate all applicable safety guidelines set forth by the ASTM and CPSC. In addition to custom wood playgrounds, we occasionally install pre-designed metal post and platform playgrounds from 2 different manufacturers.
Case Study: Bexley Community in Land O’ Lakes, Florida
Our first playground for Newland Communities was built in 2015 in North Carolina. A few months later, Booth Design Group contacted us about a playground for a new community in Land O’ Lakes, Florida. This would be the furthest to date we had traveled outside of Asheville. After we quoted one playground, they decided to hire us for all four playgrounds in the initial build-out for the Bexley Community. These four playgrounds were built in stages over two years.
Working solely from the architect’s plans and site unseen we developed four distinct and complementary playgrounds. All of these sites were to be pretty large and include all the bells and whistles. This would include natural elements and of course, high quality materials.
One playground was a natural design with embankment slides, hills, and an area specifically designed for infants under 23 months. Another incorporated ADA accessible ramps all the way to a 6’ high platform. That playground also had a spiral slide, a rope net crawl tube, a 10’ high slide, music panels, and a tire swing. The playground we were originally called about was created entirely from locust log posts and mountain laurel handrails, and was located between the community center and luxury swimming pools. The final playground was built in a sea of sand with no roads or sidewalks yet installed.
How We Work With Existing Apartment Complexes
In addition to working with developments in the early stages, we also build playgrounds for existing apartment complexes. Generally you give us a space requirements and we work with those trying to maximize the amount of play space within the parameters. As you know, having a playground with your apartment complex increases the value and appeal of the residences creating a win-win for both of us. Call or message us today with an idea of the project you want. We will send you an estimate, design, and site visit if within an hour from Asheville. See our gallery below, and then contact us to see how our playground can complement your site.
