Backyard Playground for the Kids

3R_Mama's picture

I'm about to set up a plastic playground in the backyard for the kids. Can anyone share their experience as to how they did it?

1. How deep should we dig when we remove the grass/topsoil?
2. Do we need gravel to level it? Or do we put limestone screening on top of the soil?
3. If we use limestone screening, do we still need the black plastic sheet to prevent weed growth?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
