Playground surfaces may be good, but bespoke playground surfaces can be great! They offer a lot more than just safety for children playing in space, allowing you to considerably transform your playground with a range of benefits by getting your selection of bespoke surfaces.

Having a playground surface customised to your preferences gives you a number of benefits. Take a look at some of the most significant advantages of having a bespoke playground surfacing as you consider it as an option.


You get a playground that really stands out

Bespoke surfacing allows you to create a playground that is customised to include your exact school or institution logo. You could also have images and/or artwork on the surfacing. This will enable you to have a truly unique playground. If you have a specific idea you want to bring to life, our in-house experts will be able to personalise the appearance of your playground with bespoke surfacing. Just let us know what you have in mind!


Perfectly suits your setting

Functionally, one key benefit of bespoke playground surfacing is to make sure the surfacing fits exactly into the size, design and appearance of the playground, considering the owner’s preferences. With bespoke surfaces, you therefore have a good chance to have a perfectly matched playground surface. This means you can create an inclusive playground surface that promotes confidence in children as they get involved in a number of activities.

With bespoke surfaces, you can get many designs added into your playground space. This elevates the appearance of your playground. You can get any design on your playground surfaces by having it customised, which means you don’t have to stick to a bland surface of concrete or gravel.

It can be helpful to have time to plan before having your idea made into your finished playground surfacing. If you need help picking the right design for your playground surface, we offer a free playground consultation with one of our specialists here at Creative Play UK. We will be able to discuss exactly what you want from your playground and custom playground surface, talking you through our design choices in more detail.

Improves the interest of playing in children

Children are very much influenced by visual elements, responding to images, drawings and phrases. Thankfully, with bespoke playground surfaces, you can have an image, phrase or writings of your choice, capturing interest from children. Soon, they will be engaged in a range of playing activities since they find the playing environment attractive. You can improve the time spent by children playing outside with bespoke playground surfacing. If you get good images on these playground surfaces, children will have added enjoyment as they spend time playing.

Creative Play’s experts can help you to get your customised playground surface that will capture the attention of children, improving the play environment in your school. Overall, encouraging children to play outdoors means they gain a range of health benefits and improve their motor skills. It has been studied that children can achieve a great deal when they play or exercise in spaces that are also entertaining. You can make your playground more entertaining by getting customised playground surfaces.

Enables you to hold a range of games in a single space

Bespoke playground surfaces allow you to have specific game-focused markings on the play space itself. You can add different markings to facilitate different sports. This saves you the time, cost and storage space of having to stock some of the equipment related to games, if you can have them directly on the surface itself.

Going a step further, at Creative Play we can also customise playground surfacing within spaces we call MUGAs (Multi Use Games Areas). This allows you to provide a number of different games in a single space. This type of playground surface and play environment can be utilised to create a space that allows community engagement, allowing multiple usages across different groups, also bringing in income from event hire.


Allows creativity in playgrounds

Getting bespoke surfaces for your playground means that you have the opportunity to use the surface to support various types of creativity. This creativity can spur on children, as they play alongside surface features such as mazes, animal drawings, forest landscapes or roadways. Imagine how much the children in your play area could benefit from such features. You will find bespoke playground surfaces very advantageous in supporting fun play.
