Dear Visitor,

Every week we get requests for help from all over the world. The number of inquiries grows by the month and makes us realize that we are in a very wonderful business, indeed.

How much sweeter can life be than to be working at playing, and playing at working, all the while helping children play the way they were meant to, and helping parents and caregivers re-learn the joys of being outside in nature with their children.

The requests, some of which are heartbreaking, some of which are just plain fun, come from child care centers, towns, cities, Montessori schools, public schools, Head Start programs, Tribal schools, nature centers, and individuals wanting to do something different at home and in their neighborhoods, which means that you are not alone in thinking something important is going on and you can make it happen.

Our job as natural playground architects and builders of Natural Playgrounds, is to help you turn your dreams into reality. We speak with your board, your staff, your parents, and your older children, study your curriculum, conduct interviews and administer detailed questionnaires, find your land's innate characteristics and observe play and other outdoor behavior, look at drainage patterns and study the wind, the sun, the rain, and the snow (if you have any!), and record numerous digital images of your property.

We turn all that information into stunningly realistic designs that beautifully capture the essence of natural play, and then we help you actually build your dream. Our designs make optimal use of your land, and allow you to see it in ways you never before imagined! Playing and learning on one of our natural playgrounds will make your children (of all ages!) healthier, safer, smarter, and more challenged. They'll be playing in surroundings that also teach them about nature's beauty.

But the first step is up to you. Give us a little information about yourself (so we can get back to you) and why you were searching the web looking for help. The more detail you give us, the faster we can help you get where you want to go. (We keep all your information confidential.)

We are really looking forward to the possibility of working with you.

And remember, we're always only a phone call or email away!

Warm regards,

Ron King, President
