Our new playset!
We finally got our new playset. First we set aside the area by laying down weed paper.
Then Stanley got to work putting the set together.
Mada is helping with the directions.
Here it is all set up! The kids LOVE it and have already spent a lot of time out there. We also water sealed it which will be need to be done once per year. We bought a sprayer which makes the aplication go a lot faster.
The surfacing underneath is a good quality outdoor carpat in a pebble type color. We are going to line the edges of it with landscape ties to finish it off. We will see how we like it. If we don't, then we can cover it with another loose surfacing such as pea gravel or wood chips and have in underneath as a great weed barrier. This so clean and tidy though. I saw this idea on a forum that I get on. It rained last night and was very windy. We had not even staked it down yet and it stayed securely in place and was dry this morning with no puddles. Interesting huh?
