How do you choose material that will be used for park equipment (benches, picnic tables, waste collectors)
The benches, picnic tables, waste collectors in the park video are a concept. We plan to have the park as natural as possible but, in some cases, other materials may have to be used. Pro and cons evaluation of materials will be based on durability and stability
Example: Wood plastic composite offers wear resistant wood alternative made of recycled plastic and wood.
