Playground Equipment in London & throughout the UK

Welcome to the website of Theories Landscapes. We work alongside children to create exciting natural playgrounds, developing their ideas and turning them into a reality. We’re passionate about play, and do so much more than merely supply school playground equipment, like climbing frames. We see soon-to-be play areas as a blank canvas with limitless potential, and look to create imaginative areas for sitting, talking, studying, playing, running, jumping and laughing – all the different aspects of children’s play, which is such an important part of growing up. While we chiefly cover East London, North London, South London and West London, we work nationwide upon request.


Founded back in 1983, we are one of the UK’s oldest bespoke playground design companies. Fully insured and boasting an extensive list of references, we have a fantastic reputation not just around East London, North London, South London and West London, but all throughout the UK. When it comes to natural playgrounds, no one does it better than Theories Landscapes. Sustainability and environmental conservation are at the forefront of our minds at all times. We hope that these values are instilled within the children who enjoy our playscapes and school playground equipment.


Our team takes in a real range of professions, including playground design specialists, artists, sculptors and builders who handle the hands-on aspect of supplying and installing safe school playground equipment, from climbing frames to adventure trails. We’re versatile, and design playgrounds for nurseries, receptions, primary schools and secondary schools. Part of the reason we are such a popular choice for playground design and school playground equipment, is the way we approach our work.

What Makes us Special

We are passionate about realising the potential that outside play spaces offer. The team believes that a play area should be a stage on which a child’s imagination can run wild, whether they’re actively playing or taking time to talk and socialise with their friends. That’s why we place such an emphasis on the creative side of our work, incorporating decorative art to really make a statement. While it’s important that our natural playgrounds are fun and safe, they also need to be affordable. That’s why we always make sure to work within the budgets that our East London, North London, South London and West London clients set aside for a play area.


Another thing that sets us apart from the crowd is we are always listening to parents, stakeholders and the children themselves. We believe that children are the best ones to consult when it comes to playground design, after all – they’re the ones who’ll be using it! Involving them in the design process can do wonders for their confidence and influence how successful our natural playgrounds are (how often school playground equipment is used, for example). But we’ll work closely alongside everyone involved in the process, offering advice from a project’s conception through to completion.


Ultimately, we provide:

• Design expertise

• Fixed price contract and long-term guarantees

• A friendly, transparent playground design and build process

• After-care and a long-lasting professional relationship

• Problem solving capabilities at every stage

• In depth consultations with all involved

• Construction of all elements

• Supply of all required school playground equipment
