Landscape Structures Inc., a Delano, Minn.-based commercial playground equipment manufacturer, has expanded its nature-inspired playground offerings with Facet™ Forms. This collection of modular forms is inspired by the natural geometries of geodes, minerals and other elements found in nature.
Recommended for kids ages 2 to 12, Facet Forms delivers a geometric aesthetic to any playground design and invite endless chances to climb and explore. Made from concrete, these contemporary looking playground components will withstand years of rugged activity. Best of all, Landscape Structures is the only concrete playground manufacturer to perform all design, engineering and manufacturing in‑house.
The modular design of Facet Forms means lots of play possibilities. Use the following components in a variety of ways to create a unique nature-inspired playground design:
- Facet Crawl Tunnel With climbing challenges on the outside and hangout spaces within the tunnel, the Facet Crawl Tunnel offers tactile and other sensory input
- Facet Crawl Tunnel with Stepper(s): Give users a boost to more climbing fun on the outside of the Facet Crawl Tunnel with one or two Facet Steppers (recommended for ages 5 to 12)
- Facet Steppers Deliver a pathway to fun with the Facet Steppers; use as a step-up to the PlayBooster® playstructure or as a freestanding play component
- Facet Balance Beam Challenge kids’ balance with the various heights and widths of this balance beam; available in single, double and triple configurations

Research shows that children who play in natural settings are typically healthier, happier and more likely to appreciate the world around them. Green space, sunlight and fresh air can reduce the symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, improve academic performance, increase motor skills, strength and coordination—even help build social skills.
“With childhood obesity and behavioral disorders on the rise, the benefits of nature-inspired play have taken center stage,” said Scott Roschi, creative director at Landscape Structures. “From local playgrounds to Capitol Hill, park and playground planners are interested in providing the adventure and wonder of nature with durable, safe and low-maintenance playground equipment.”
