The Benefits of Playground Borders
Playground Plastic borders are a great way to create visually distinctive borders for landscaping, playground materials, and other types of surfacing. Our border timbers have no splinters (unlike wood) or preservative chemicals. They’re easy to install — you don’t need any expertise or special tools to put them in. Our black borders are manufactured from 100% recycled plastic.
Plastic borders with a length of 4 feet and a height of 12 inches are readily available in black and green. You can special-order border timbers of other colors. Please note that other colors are considered special production runs and may require more time to manufacture.
How to fit playground plastic borders
Fitting plastic borders together is easy. The ends of the border sections overlap, and they are fastened in place with a galvanized spike. Just line the borders up where you want them to go, drive the spike into the ground using a mallet or sledgehammer, and your job is done.
These borders are manufactured from polyethylene, and they have ribs molded-in for strength. This design makes them very sturdy. The plastic borders are hollow, not solid, weighing only 9 lbs. Our company uses these borders in its own commercial jobs.
Dimensions of each playground border
Length: 52 inches (4 feet, 4 inches). But for measuring purposes, the timber is an exact 4′ long, since each one overlaps with the next. Width: 4 inches. Height: 12 inches.

Our plastic borders are made from roto-molded plastic. They’re sturdy, but they’re not flexible. If you’re working on a project with very specific dimensions, you can order our Adjustable End Piece. This is a “skeleton” mini-border section that can be slid into a regular plastic border. It lets you trim a border to a specific length. To install an End Piece, you cut an existing border section vertically to the length you need. Then, you slide in the End Piece. And presto change-o, you have a border section that will fit snugly into the remaining space you have in your project.
Our plastic border timbers overlap and attach together using vertical steel spikes. But if you’re using the borders to create a straight line that does not meet up with another border section, you can fill in the small gap at the end of each border using a separate piece known as a “filler end.” These are small, hollow blocks of plastic that are molded to the dimensions of the opening at the end of the border. They’re available for borders in heights of 8″, 9″, and 12″.
