Re: Play Paradise

Good afternoon @tattoomaggie 

Thats a fair amount of work you have put in! Looks good :smile: My biggest question is "How did you lay your hands on a McDonalds play center" :smile: lol 

Second question is how well does the fake grass drain?

Hello @tattoomaggie 


Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. It's marvellous to have you join us, and thank you for sharing your amazing play paradise project.


What an awesome playground project! I'm in agreement with @Dave-1, how did you manage to get hold of the play center? I can only imagine if the other parents in the neighbourhood find out, they will probably be requesting if their children can play in your garden. Using artificial grass for the area I think is a good choice, it can withstand rough play and you don't have to worry about maintenance.


You've even placed a shaded area with a sofa which makes it a perfect spot to watch the children while they play. 


Again, thank you so much for sharing such a wonderful project.

Let me also extend a very warm welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @tattoomaggie, and echo the question: Where can I get my own McDonald's playground? 😃
