Reasons for the Growing Popularity of Natural Wood Playground Equipment

Why get natural wood playground equipment instead of plastic or metal ones? The reasons are many, among which are:


Wooden equipment is much better for the environment. Materials such as plastic can take millions of years to decompose. On the other hand, wood is a natural part of the environment. Plus, we get the wood from PEFC-certified forests via our partners at Lappset. This helps us ensure that the carbon footprint is kept at a minimum. Additionally, we source Finnish wood. In Finland, whenever trees are cut, new ones are planted to replace them.

Creates a Natural Environment

Your playground is a centerpiece of the outdoors. Wooden play stations merge seamlessly with natural surroundings, such as wood chip trails. This helps children connect deeply with nature and develop a love for the environment. Plus, such structures do not fade with time and retain their appeal longer. In fact, with time, they look even more adapted to their natural surroundings.

Encourages Physical Development

It goes without saying that playing outdoors is a great physical activity. The benefits are magnified when the playground equipment is made from natural wood. These are more varied and fun for children, with structures like log bars and trim trails, helping kids develop motor skills, hand-eye coordination and stability.
