The Q&A Archives: Sand Or Woodchips

Question: I am building a 20' x 24' play area for my children's swingset. Do you recommend sand or wood chips?

Thank you in advance for the assistance!

Answer: I'd go with woodchips. Some of the smaller particles may cling to your children's clothing, but at least they won't have to share their play area with anything the neighborhood cats might leave behind. (Cats love to dig in sand but they generally stay away from woodchips.)

Hope this helps you decide which material is best for you!
