Landscape Structures


Landscape Structures Inc. was founded in 1971 by Barb and Steve King, and is headquartered in Delano, Minn. The leading commercial playground equipment manufacturer in the world, Landscape Structures currently has more than 300 employees and a global network of 200 independent sales representatives who are all singularly committed to creating healthy, sustainable communities. The employee-owned company has a long, rich history of creating innovative products with incredible safety features and exciting play experiences for children of all abilities.

Through the years, Landscape Structures has introduced many pioneering innovations including the first post and clamp-based playsystem known as PlayBooster®, the first playsystem with an arched design called Evos®, and HealthBeat®, the first gym-quality outdoor fitness system for ages 13+. Landscape Structures has also been at the forefront of creating inclusive playground equipment for children of all abilities. Long before the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) set minimum guidelines for equal access play areas, Landscape Structures had been designing a wide array of inclusive features like our interactive, ground level play panels, OmniSpin® spinner and PebbleFlex® playground safety surfacing, which provides smooth, protective surface for children using mobility devices.

As a true industry leader, Landscape Structures believes it's not just what we make but how we make our products that is important. More than a decade ago, we took a major step in fulfilling our mission of honoring the environment by becoming the first playground equipment manufacturer to be certified to ISO 14001 standards for environmental stewardship. This certification guarantees that Landscape Structures meets the highest standards for environmentally responsible manufacturing processes. Our sustainable practices allow us to produce the industry's highest-quality playground equipment with the least amount of waste. The result is innovative products that are built to last for years and generations to come. Landscape Structures is committed to working side by side with customers to foster healthier kids and families, a cleaner planet and vibrant, sustainable communities for the future.
