Choosing colours is often the hardest decision to make in the planning of your playground. Whether you opt for a combination of bright primary colours, something to blend with the local environment, or even a mix of your own school colours, we can tailor the combination to suit your needs. Our consultants can assist you in selecting the most suitable colours.
