The plastic border timbers overlap and connect with a 30-inch steel spike. And presto, you’re done!

Our sturdy plastic playground borders are the best way to retain playground surfacing in place. Just line them up where you want them to go, secure them with a vertical spike (included), and voila, your new border system is in place. The border timbers provide a retaining barrier for loose-fill resilient surfacing and add a finished edge to the play area. They’re easy to install, even in your backyard. To make the border systems ADA-compliant, just add an ADA entrance ramp and engineered wood fiber surfacing. They also make great sandboxes, dirt boxes, landscape borders and flower boxes.

Plastic timbers are splinter free, unlike wood, and they require no expertise or special tools to do a professional looking job. They’re also easy to move and re-install. Also, plastic timbers contain playground surfacing (like woodchips) in a defined area. Finally, they create a visually pleasing border to any area.
