The Kidsafe Playground Renovation Completed
Ozbreed donated plants to the Kidsafe Playground in Westmead Sydney to use throughout their playground. Katrina Layt from the Ozbreed office had also put in her time to help out at their working bee.
The plant varieties donated to the Kidsafe Playground by Ozbreed are great plants that are naturally safe for children, soft to touch, and can handle rough kids! Here’s a list of the varieties that were used in this playspace.
Grey Box™ Westringia fruticosa ‘WES04’ PBR
Shara™ Lomandra fluviatilis ‘ABU7’ PBR
Tanika® Lomandra longifolia ‘LM300’ PBR.
Out of these plants, a few Shara were planted next to a balance beam in playground mulch to demonstrate the success of the Playground Mulch Trial. Over the last 3 years Ozbreed has been taking part along with Fiona Robbe’ Landscape Architects, The Bark Blower and Acoustoscan in the Playground Mulch Trial. Results have shown that strappy plants can be used in playground mulch with good plant health, as well as safety.
