Playground surfaces

Are there any options other than sand, wood chips or recycled tires?

I found jelly bean mulch, which isn't made out of tires, but it looks a bit sharp.

Playground surfaces

We didn't do anything under our swings. We just left the grass and found that to be our best solution.

I was also shocked at how expensive a lot of that stuff is.

DS also rarely even uses his playset anymore....once in awhile or if we have a bunch of kids over.

Playground surfaces

We used pea gravel and its inexpensive and works well. It keeps the water drained, and we've only had to add a little more gravel about 6 years later. Only downsides are that its not easy to walk on barefoot (though my kids do) and some rambunctious little ones throw the rocks.

We got free mulch delivered from a local tree company
