Company History

Landscape Structures Inc. was founded in 1971 by Barb and Steve King, and is headquartered in Delano, Minn. Landscape Structures is one of the leading commercial playground equipment manufacturers in the world, and the company has designed, manufactured, installed and delighted children with more than 75,000 playgrounds worldwide.

 

The company, now 100% employee-owned takes great pride in manufacturing and producing all of our play structures under one roof, right in Delano, Minn. We're so proud of this fact, we include country-of-origin information for our products on our sales quotes. Not only does this create and keep jobs in the United States, it allows us to maintain control over the quality of the playground equipment you purchase. While other manufacturers are increasingly sourcing components from overseas to drive down costs, we just don't believe it's worth it. You deserve better. And so does our country.
