What have you used for flooring underneath the set?

Planning on going for Greentree woodworks, unless anyone here's had a bad experience?
Grass, with their foam mats.

Which foam mats? Greentree as their own foam mats?

How large is each mat? They didn't mention these mats when I spoke to them yesterday...is there a link to see them?

Any issues with the wood ones weathering poorly? Do you need to seal then like a wood deck?

How big is it, in terms of what age kids it's appropriate for? Can older kids enjoy it?

Not sure, it's on their pricing list. Do you have one?

They claim that you need to stain or seal it every 3-4 yrs.

Sounds like a good idea. Don't want splinters

Any ideas how I can place a swing set on a rooftop?

Thinking about @davidmal swing set as itíll be easy to install, but Iíd rather have something bigger if installable.

Any advice?

Anyone use green tree more recently?
Anyone have their pricing sheet?
Any good/bad reviews or Recommendations?
 (Now that itís been a few years since the ones posted here were purchased)

I see like 8 Jewish companies advertised for vinyl - but way out of my price range.

TIA
