Need to cover a patch of concrete
There is a patch of concrete by the ground-floor entrance to our house. The area is nicely shaded by the deck above, and there is a swing hanging from the same deck. In other words, the kid likes to play there.
Unfortunately, not only is the concrete abrasive to the little knees, when it rains, puddles to tend accumulate there. Short of redoing the patch to slope to one side, what else can be done?
We thought of laying some sort of raised floor there -- to be above the puddles and to be a little softer on the skin. Any suggestions for the material, etc? Thank you!
