    By listening to customers’ needs and then finding ways to meet them, Pet and Playground has grown into a full-service outdoor amenity manufacturer, distributer, designer and installation team.


    HISTORY: Pet and Playground is a division of Hercules Poly, Inc., a company founded in Eclectic, Alabama, in 1993 and is today a national manufacturer and provider of poly bags.

    WHAT ARE PET AND PLAYGROUND'S PRIMARY SERVICES? We create and design any outdoor amenity space needed. We work with numerous builders, architects, multi-family providers, schools and more to create the perfect park, playground, dog park or just a place to relax outdoors.

    WHAT IS PET AND PLAYGROUND’S PHILOSOPHY? Pet and Playground’s business has grown over the years with the philosophy and attitude of “yes.” We started out thinking we would sell playground structures for kids and dog park equipment for dogs and that would be the extent of our offerings. However, as we listened to our customers and started to understand their needs, we found out we needed to help solve problems for them. So, when we were asked to install fencing, we said yes. When our clients asked if we could sell outdoor fitness equipment and install it, we said yes. When they asked if we could help design and repurpose tennis courts, we naturally said yes. Our philosophy has been to be a resource to help make our customers’ lives easier and provide the products and services they need.

    WHAT SETS PET AND PLAYGROUND AND ITS SERVICES APART? We work closely with our local contractors and architects to ensure the proper safety requirements are met and exceeded in their outdoor projects. We love being an asset in helping design new playgrounds and dog parks throughout the building community.

    WHAT’S ON THE HORIZON FOR PET AND PLAYGROUND? Jessica Hoagland, our Regional Sales and Marketing Representative for the state, is always working to build lasting relationships with our clients to become a resource for their needs. PNP is striving to continue that growth and build with new clients and partners throughout the River Region. Just recently, Hoagland was awarded the playground bid for the new baseball stadium for the Rocket City Trash Pandas in Madison, Alabama. She also continues to work with numerous early education facilities and multi-family partners to create modern designs for their outdoor amenity offerings.

    HONORS & AWARDS: Jessica Hoagland is a proud Chamber of Commerce member and also a local Montgomery Rotary Club member. She just recently received a Paul Harris Fellow award from the Montgomery Rotary Club and also a letter of gratitude from the City of Montgomery for her work to provide design and pieces for the new Rotary Dog Park downtown.
