Why We Make The Best Playgrounds

We Remember...

At Whirlix Design, we remember what it felt like to be a kid, to play with our friends on the playground and feel the sunshine on our face and the fresh air in our lungs. We remember that sense of awe, wonderment, and freedom. We remember seeing the world through curious eyes and finding inspiration in everything.
After years of work in the corporate world, we realized that we wanted that inspiration back. We wanted our work to make a difference, to make the world a better place—not only for ourselves, but for our families.
As parents in this overscheduled, hectic world, we knew the importance of unstructured play for our kids. We have seen for ourselves what kids gain through play—emotionally, physically and mentally. So when the opportunity arose in 2017, we twirled our way into the Landscape Structures family.
And we couldn’t be happier!

People, Philosophy, Leadership, Reputation, and Quality All Matter.

We joined Landscape Structures because we believe in their mission and core values. They are the very best in the industry and we are thrilled to be a part of changing the world through play!

  • Landscape Structures is 100% employee owned (ESOP), so employees are directly invested in their success by living their values and committing to the highest level of service, innovation and design.
  • Founded by a landscape architect, Steve King, the creator of the continuous play concept, Landscape Structures outpaces the industry in creating custom playgrounds by focusing on design thinking and lever-aging the largest in-house design team.
  • World-class manufacturing at Landscape Structures is driven by Kaizen methodology and culture since 1999. Vertically integrated for maximum quality control by employee owners, superior materials, fit and finishes ensure their playgrounds are built to last decades instead of years.
  • Landscape Structures’ customer-centric philosophy means they go above and beyond their industry-leading warranty to do what’s right every time. They have the industry’s best lead and delivery times.
Whirlix Design, along with Landscape Structures, is committed to bringing you the best playgrounds in the world.

  • All parts coated in TenderTuff ®Coating have a 15 year warranty and will not rust.

From Landscape Structures’ exclusive compression clamps that keep fingers and clothing safe to the tunnel slide design that eliminates pinched fingers; their focus is on safety and durability. They use only the best materials they can find, because they build their products to last.

  • Landscape Structures uses 3/4" Permalene®, because they know it's rugged, won't chip or peel, and the finish holds up in all kinds of weather.
  • Plain old S-hooks are not good enough. They use top-of-the-line Clevis bolts or Swivel Point Connectors instead. They are more durable and reliable.
  • Steel reinforced cable wrapped in polyester is used instead of traditional ropes that can rub skin the wrong way. This space-age material is easy on little hands, UV-stable and won't fray.
  • Their aluminum die-cast half-clamp design features 360 degrees of compression for a more secure fit to posts. Aluminum rivet adds shear strength for deck-supporting clamps.
  • Tender hands are protected from the temperature extremes of bare metal with their proprietary TenderTuff®Surface Coating. You'll find it on most every thing children may touch. It also provides a softer-grippier surface.
  • They use only high-quality, architectural-grade, Super-Durable TGIC polyester powdercoat paints. These specially formulated, corrosion-resistant coating, plus their five-step wash-and-paint process and epoxy primer layer, ensure optimum UV stability and gloss retention and a rugged, long-lasting finish.
  • Their innovative and versatile ball-and-socket clamping system is used for Evos® play systems and other products. Over 6,500 pounds of clamping strength.
  • They use 5” Aluminum posts and stainless steel fasteners that will never rust and will not need to be replaced like steel. They also use aluminum post caps not plastic.
  • Their decks are flange-formed from 12-gauge steel, with safe, rounded corners. Flush-mounted to the outside of posts for more play space; less chance for toes or hands to get caught and they are TenderTuff® coated.
