Natural Playgrounds

Natural Playgrounds

“Nature deficit disorder” – Richard Louv.  We believe in connecting kids with nature.  Afterall, we are in the business of being outdoors.  Natural playgrounds are not a luxury, they are a necessity.  Fundamental development of our youth depends on engaging the senses and having the opportunity to assess risk.  A natural outdoor environment can provide this.  From pop up outdoor classrooms to full natural component playgrounds, we are proud to help our future generations have access to natures’ benefits.  All our installations follow and comply with CSA, ASTM, and ANSI standards.

Why Work With Us

  • Our highest recommendation

    Over the past 5 years, we have used the services of Focal Point Landscape Design and Installation for three multi-week landscaping projects involving installation of major retaining walls, stone steps, patios, fire pits, sodded areas, flower beds, dry river beds, curved walkways and more. They do excellent work for a fair price; they work efficiently and diligently; they clean up the site at the end of each day; they are easy to work with; and they accommodate changes to the design throughout the process. They have our highest recommendation. We will definitely use them for our next landscaping project.

  • Very positive experience

    We had very positive experience with Dave and FocalPoint. He met with me and sent photos to look at for design ideas. He knew my budget and made it work. He and his workmate were professional and hard-working. Plus he loved my dog and the feeling was mutual. A year later, our daughter was married on our new patio.

  • Decorator magazine worthy

    Thanks to the exceptional quality of work by Dave Milburn and his professional crew, our backyard has been transformed into a welcoming oasis for relaxing, dining and entertaining friends and family. Dave was very helpful and patient in working with us to achieve our dream backyard. He was able to make our vision a reality. The crew was courteous and took great pride in their workmanship. The job was completed on schedule and on budget. I would not hesitate to use Focal Point again in the future.
    Praise from our visitors: “Decorator magazine worthy”, “Could be in Better Homes and Garden magazine”, “Stunning”, “Amazing space”, etc.
