We are truly the PLAYGROUND PROFESSIONALS

If you dont see an answer here to your question, please just ASK US!

What type of wood are your playsets made of ?
Bergfeld playsets are made of both Redwood or Cedar. They both carry a LIFETIME or 10 Year warranty on all wood components to the original purchaser. California Redwood and Cedar have proven to be superior in durability, beauty, strength and resistance to the elements. Redwood and Cedar does not contain harmful chemicals that may affect your children's health. Its tight, thin cell structure is very unique; and therefore, moisture absorbs at a much much slower rate than other woods. This in turn, reduces the effects of decay and the attraction to bugs that may be looking for a home. Naturally Beautiful No other softwood has the rich beauty and deep grain texture of redwood and cedar. Bergfeld Recreation uses only wood from suppliers that participate in the Sustainable Forestry Initiative Programs (SFI)

What type of site preperation is needed before installation?
Choose a location with a 6' perimeter around all sides of your playset. Site should be level although we will level your playset into your yard. Digging in your set level is included up to 6" deep. Our sets have some adjustability for unlevel yards. If your play area is more than a gradual slope then call us for a free yard check.

Can I install the playset myself?
Yes, all of our sets are precut and predrilled. Easy to read instructions allow you to install most of our sets in 3 to 12 hours.

Can I add on to my playset later on?
That is what sets us apart from many other companies is our modular designs. You can start with a basic playset and add on as your children grow.

How often do your playsets have to be sealed?
All of our sets are sealed/stained before you get them so they are automatically protected from outdoor elements. We recommend sealing your playset every 2 years. We also have a maintenance service where we tighten all the bolts, powerwash and seal your set , so you dont have to.

What if I move?
