Anyone installed in their backyard those foam surfaces we can find at playgrounds?
My wife and I would like to make use of what little area we call our backyard now that our little one can walk and was wondering what those foam surfaces we find at community playgrounds? It's just that it's probably safer to put that at least for the next few years instead of those interlocking stones/cement blocks.
Also, what kind of preparation is required if we'd like to get rid of the grass? I understand the grasses / weeds naturally prevent soil erosion and flooding but how much work does a small yard require just to make sure we are within Oakville or city by-laws and that flooding during heavy rain are prevented?
We are not to keen on artificial turf at it's more for decoration and doesn't serve much purposed and I heard it can quite costly.
Many thanks in advance.
