PROBLEM:
How can we attract more patrons to our campground?

SOLUTION:
Diminished use of campground areas results in lost revenue. Increase profitability by converting existing campground spaces to more profitable and popular yurt sites. Pacific Yurts combine the best experiences of tent camping and cabin life, providing lifelong memories with happy campers who keep coming back for more. Engineered to be the strongest and most durable in the industry, the finely crafted Pacific Yurt is cost-effective, and easy to set up and maintain.

PROBLEM:
How can you shade a walkway, children's drop-off area or poolside?

SOLUTION:
When support columns can be placed on only one side of a shade canopy, the Shade Walk is the perfect solution. The Shade Walk features a clever cantilever design that provides a generous 10-foot width of shade with no support columns along the outside of the canopy. It features the innovative Turn-N-SlideTM easy canopy removal system, and is available with shade fabric or waterproof fabric.

PROBLEM:
We are considering a synthetic turf athletic field, but need to better understand the maintenance involved.

SOLUTION:
While all A-Turf synthetic grass systems are virtually maintenance-free—eliminating the need and expense of the cutting, watering, fertilizing and reseeding—most contracts include a Greens Groomer. The Greens Groomer is used to periodically groom the fibers and infill. Most fields are groomed once or twice a month. A Parker Sweeper is sometimes purchased as well.

PROBLEM:
How can we improve the stability of our batter's box?

SOLUTION:
For those who can't afford the high costs of maintaining clay batter's boxes but need stability for hitters, Beacon Athletics Porous Rubber Batter's Box Mats can answer the call. Bury these mats an inch below grade to greatly reduce the digout in batter's boxes and catcher's boxes. No more messy clay to work with and keep moist. Just drag over the top to re-groom and prepare for another day's games. This economical solution will last for years.

PROBLEM:
Waterworks Park in Reading, Mich., desperately needed to replace worn-out playground equipment that had become unsafe.

SOLUTION:
The Hillsdale County Community Foundation provided a grant to purchase a new playground. Recreation Creations Inc.® worked with the city to design a park that would accommodate kids of all ages. More than 40 volunteers helped. The students from Reynolds Elementary School were so grateful for the renovated play space, they wrote thank-you letters.
