Gill Playgrounds

Innovative Outdoor Learning Environments

Playground Design

Gill Landscapes will design an innovative outdoor learning environment that will optimise your space. Through consultation with you, we will incorporate your ideas and preschool philosophy into a creative landscape design.

If your looking to upgrade an existing playground we are the professionals you need. Our commercial manager Peter Greer is an accredited operational playground inspector and can ensure your outdoor learning environment meets the NZS:5828 Standard.

At Gill Landscapes we understand that a well designed environment is vital for children’s learning and development. We love creating open-ended play spaces, loose parts, natural materials and moveable obstacle courses. If you would like help with putting your ideas on paper, give us a call.
