SCHOOL LANDSCAPING

Being a sponsor of the West Australian Primary Principals Association (WAPPA) we love to work with primary schools to make their school landscaping exciting , safe and also as low maintenance as possible.

We really enjoy individually designing Nature Playgrounds that compliment any existing school landscaping features and we use only natural materials where at all possible so that the end result is not a mix with plastic and steel and concrete but a truly natural looking play area.

We will work to your individual requirements such as a recently completed Natural Creek at Roleystone Community College where the school requested that it fitted in with the natural bushland.

This was achieved by sourcing all the local coffee rock from the school grounds that had been disturbed during clearing and building the extended school rods and buildings.

This natural creek has a hidden water source that can be controlled by the supervisors, small cascades and ponds where the children will love to sit and play on those hot summer days.

We also created two log bridges and crossing stepping stones to allow for movement and balance practice during playtime.

  • CREEKS

    Our creeks can be constructed wet or dry. If running water is required we can channel that into a “mud kitchen” area and also to a river style beach for play in wet or dry sand areas.

  • TEE PEES

    We build Tee Pees either open or covered and smaller Cubbies that allow the children to add to them with fabric or smaller branches to create a den.

  • FORESTS

    Our forests are popular where we have a cluster of natural bush logs concreted into the ground at quite close intervals to provide hiding places and to dodge in and out of.

  • FOREST WALKS

    Forests walks are various footholds provided at different heights and distances on smaller poles that allow children to traverse the set of poles without touching the ground. Great confidence booster and can be build to different scales to suit age groups.

  • BOATS

    We also specialise in building boats—or rather likeness of boats to allow for children’s imaginations. Whether you would like an old style boat, pirate ship, dinghy or yacht we can design and build it for you. We use a combination of real rustic Jarrah timber for the main frames and then use our excellent composite timber planks for the hull so that ongoing maintenance is kept to an absolute minimum.

At The landscape Guys we are always thinking up new play ideas and we are also like to listen to any ideas that you may have. Teachers or parents may have an idea that we can incorporate into the play area. If so we will design and cost this for you also.

Just give us a call and we will visit you on site and discuss your School Landscaping requirements.

Note: The Landscape Guys also specialise in Synthetic Turf installations and Basketball Courts so for those playground areas that will not grow any grass or have very High traffic we can help you there too.

Basketball Courts, Netball and Tennis Courts even if they are cracking up bitumen can be covered in synthetic turf to make them clean and safe again.

We have had schools tell us that the courts that were hardly used are now used all the time once they are made into turf courts and they will also last so much longer with only one service call required per year to keep them in top condition.
