Anyone know of any materials that could be used for this.. around a
Ive found kid kushion at 2.5" for $26 for a 2x2 tile which is good for
6 feet.. but this is really expensive, even if I did just around the
clubhouse area that would be minimally 10 tiles if not more.
Any thoughts on alternatives?
I dont really want mulch.. I'd rather have my 1 year old eating grass
than rubber or bark lol
Yes, it does make for a tolerable landing. However, a 1 year old will <eat>
it, and older kids will <throw> it. Sand is rough on knees and attracts
cats, so that is out. I still recommend turf and tall grass. If the divots
bother you, make the swingset movable so you can rotate the wear spots.
Unless this is a multi-kid swingset, the wear should not be too bad.
The pea gravel sounds interesting.. but yeah.. I'd rather not have a
substance that can be picked up or eaten (lol)...
Sure those rubber pads can get hot, but they are pretty durable and
convienent, but expensive IE: Kid kushion
Those are the ones I was hoping to find cheaper somehow.. or a cheap
way to "emulate" them.
Actually cedar chips is what you want... Deep, about 6".
Any solid surface will hold nasty things like bird droppings and will
get hot in the summer and cold in the winter.
Cedar doesn't splinter or rot, so it's a good choice. You want the
fresh stuff, right out of the grinder, not mulch.
