LockWood Landscapes specialise in the design and build of Natural Play Areas and Playgrounds. If you’ve ever climbed a tree, made a den, climbed on a rock, made mud cakes, dammed up water, dug in sand, jumped in leaves, or had fun outside in other, similar ways, you’ve experienced natural play!
Our Natural play areas and play grounds aim to emphasize that the total environment can have play value, not just a corner of a park or playground. We use grassy mounds, sand pits, innovative planting, timber decking, trees, water, bridges and boulders complemented by modern well designed play equipment. An exciting and challenging space to play with unlimited creativity and imagination.
Installing natural materials and other landscape elements to children’s outdoor playgrounds and play areas lead to changes in children’s spatial cognitive awareness. Changes in the layout of the playground challenges and increases children’s physical competence and skills. Natural play also improves children’s socialisation and fantasy play.
Each design is bespoke so there isn’t a brochure of products but we would be more than happy to survey the potential area discuss previous case studies and offer our free design service.
