plasticborders_pl_6ftOur playground borders in a 6-foot length are the industry standard for landscaping, playgrounds, and home areas. These borders are very easy to install, using only a mallet or small sledgehammer. They also make great dirt boxes, sandboxes, and flower boxes. Each of our 6-foot playground borders measures 12″ tall and comes with two spikes that measure 30″ long. The plastic borders are made from molded plastic, so they’re extremely sturdy. But they have a hollow design, meaning that they’re also lightweight.

Playground borders are a great way to create visually distinctive borders for landscaping, playground materials, and other types of surfacing. Our playground borders have no splinters or preservative chemicals, unlike wooden borders. They’re easy to install — you don’t need any expertise or special tools to put them in. Our black playground borders are manufactured from 100% recycled plastic

Plastic borders overlap and secure in place using two 30-inch steel spikes.

These playground borders are manufactured from polyethylene, and they have ribs molded-in for strength. This design makes them very sturdy. The items are hollow, not solid, weighing only 9 lbs. Our company has installed these plastic borders on dozens of jobs, and we stand behind them completely.

Fitting plastic timbers together is easy. The ends of the playground borders overlap, and they are fastened in place with a galvanized spike. Just line the plastic borders up where you want them to go, drive the spike into the ground using a mallet or sledgehammer, and your job is done. Each of our 6-foot plastic borders comes with 2 spikes.

The length of the borders is 76 inches end to end (6 feet, 4 inches). This includes the overlapping ends of the borders. When you install them, the pieces overlap, so for measuring purposes when calculating linear feet needs, each border is a true 6 feet (72 inches).

Width: 4 inches. Height: 12 inches.
