Water, Sand and Mud by MIG

MIG are a large corporate firm, but they seem to have an admirable commitment to water/sand/mud play in their park designs.

From top to bottom: Market Street Park in Scottsdale, Arizona, Mace Rach Community Park in Davis, California, Ibach Park in Tualatin, Oregon, and Jurgens Park also in Tualatin. Looove that pig.
Any ideas on how to deal with erosion as a maintenance issue in installations like these? Is new dirt and sand added and smoothed regularly?

    Arcady—someone told me recently that the M in MIG stands for Moore, as in Robin Moore from NC State’s Natural Learning Initiative. If that is the case, it would definitely explain why these projects are part of their portfolio.
