One of the hottest trends in playgrounds today is using the slope of an embankment, or a standalone mound, to supercharge the play potential.
Mounds and embankments offer the same elevation gain and drop that metal and plastic playgrounds do, but are in many ways an improvement. By using a more natural topography, within the ground itself, the designer isn’t limited to 4′ squares.
Utilizing natural topography does add some challenges.
