2. Why do I need a sandbox cover?

There are many good reasons to get a sandbox cover:

  • Sandbox covers prevent sand and sand toys from blowing away.
  • Covers keep the sand dry — our full vinyl models are waterproof.
  • Covers keep out leaves and branches.
  • They also keep the sand clean and sanitary by preventing animals from entering the sandbox. Cats love sand … and not for the right reasons. Squirrels, raccoons, and other wildlife may also enjoy frolicking in sandboxes.
  • In hot weather, the sun can make sand very hot (ever been to the beach in July?). Sandbox covers keep the sand shaded, making it cool for use by kids.

It depends on what type of sandbox you have, and how large it is.

sandbox covers protect play area sandFor smaller sandboxes, up to 10′ x 10′, our weighted-edge models are a great choice. You simply place the covers over the sandbox, then lift the cover flaps over the side of the sandbox. The weighted chain sewn into the flaps holds the cover in place. The weighted-edge covers are available in full vinyl (to keep the water out) or in vinyl with a mesh center (to let the water run through into the sandbox). These covers are available in any size.
