PLAY Book

Design Matters. PLAY Matters More.

For us, "design" refers to what a playstructure looks like as much as it does to the play value built into it. We simply cannot design one without the other.

And for one good reason: Play value is what creates return visitors.

That's why Landscape Structures designs play environments to be newly fresh and exciting upon every visit. Children enjoy a hive of activity that sparks the imagination, facilitates discovery and lends itself to new adventure.
