Robinia Playhuts and Playhouses
Wooden Playground Huts
Wooden huts and playhouses are important places in a playground - places to retreat to, meet, share secrets, organise and plan. The play hut is a haven and introduction to the concept of home life. Too small for adults, it is where children can be the ‘boss’ and can create their own imaginative stories. Open-sided with benches, timber playhouses offer the opportunity to develop hand-eye coordination and are the perfect place to develop communication and sharing.
Robinia is an ideal material to create wooden playhouses. Its characteristics like a tight grain, light colour and smooth surface offer a warmth that makes it irresistible to toddlers and young children. It is a tactile wood that lasts well against the elements. Its shape and form are also friendly to children with curved edges and no lurking nails, making for plenty of fun and no worries.

Wooden play huts and houses are the perfect way to introduce children to the wonderful world of nature play. With the ability to sit comfortably and naturally in sand or bark, there is no need for special surfacing. They are great add-ons to larger sites like wooden castle playgrounds, with great value and a compact size.
Robinia timber is a triumph of nature. It grows in poor soils, it feeds nitrogen into the earth encouraging other plants, it flowers to be the source of Acadia honey, and its leaves breathe out Co2. It adapts well in urban areas, gracing many boulevards and streets. When cut as timber, the stump regenerates and grows back quickly, making it highly sustainable. The timber is fine-grained, strong and durable - the perfect material for play features like climbing structures or swings.
Another impressive aspect of Robinia is its natural shape, which dictates how each piece of timber can be used. Each one is unique and brings individuality to each commercial wooden playhouse.
