Kid Friendly Backyard Ideas
Playing outside and spending quality time enjoying nature is an essential part of childhood so designing a kid friendly backyard is important. It is an experience that many of us from a previous generation enjoyed far more easily than those born today.
When designing an outdoor space safety is a clear priority, but so are look, feel, and function. A kid scape only works when it is attractive, functional, and enjoyable to be in, otherwise, neither kids nor adults will use it.
Take a look at this makeover in Syosset where Gappsi designed a Kid Friendly Backyard. This makeover included:
- basketball sports game court
- in-ground trampoline
- outdoor playset
- synthetic grass
- updated pool liner
G038 Marble Pavers Backyard Patio Design
Gappsi installed G038 marble pavers for the entire backyard patio design. Gappsi designers chose a walnut travertine veneer for the walls and the sitting walls. This system is great for retaining walls, sitting walls, and columns that will show a more natural stone character. The sitting wall is also a retaining wall to hold the flower bed between the pool and the basketball court.
Synthetic Turf Floor
Gappsi installed next synthetic turf floor. Synthetic turf is UV stabilized to protect against color fading; unlike natural turf that will have to deal with diseases, drought, and dormancy, artificial grass has the benefits of looking great 24/7 all year long. It can also be used to spruce up spaces where it isn’t feasible to grow a lawn.
Often synthetic turf is promoted as environmentally friendly because homeowners do not have water, to fertilize or mow their lawns anymore, reducing emissions by no longer being dependent on gas-powered machines.
Maintenance is often said to be nonexistent for synthetic turf, but if homeowners do want their artificial turf to last as long as possible, there is some maintenance needed.
High-Quality Trampolines Everyone Will Love!
We provide high-quality in-ground, above-ground trampolines, and playground equipment. Let us help you find the perfect trampoline for your family. We’ve been creating safe and fun backyard memories for decades.
When getting ready to put a trampoline inground there are many things to consider. First, do you have space? Make sure you leave yourself adequate space around the trampoline with an enclosure should the kids land outside of the jumping area. You should give yourself at least 18ft overhead clearance and 6ft clearance on each side of the trampoline.
What makes our Trampolines Great?
- Heavy-Duty Frames – provide stability, support, and safety; they also last longer.
- The Bounce in the Springs – the more springs and the longer the spring length, the better the bounce experience. Stainless steel, tapered springs provide the longest lasting and best bouncing springs for trampolines.
- The Jump Bed – Also referred to as the jump mat, this part of the trampoline is one area you don’t want to skimp. Made of a high-grade polypropylene material that is smooth to the touch, this is what handles all the tension and safely catches you after each bounce. The stitching surrounding the bed is critical for strength and durability and that is why all our jump beds have a minimum of 8 rows of stitching.
- Safety Frame Pad – This important safety piece should be at least 1” thick and be in a UV-treated vinyl covering that will have low wear and long life. The pad should secure tightly and cover the frame and springs.
