What is natural playground equipment?
Answer - When people refer to natural playground equipment, they are sometimes looking for natural wooden products. This type of product is often not CSA certified and can rot or wear down more easily in British Columbia's climate. Other times they are looking for products that have a natural look to coordinate with the area surrounding the playground/park. Green Roots Play Equipment chooses to offer natural coloured and themed playground equipment that is durable, CSA certified and comes with a leading-edge warranty.
