Creativity has always been at the heart of our products. You could say it is built into the Wishbone DNA. When the opportunity arises to develop a custom site furnishing solution, our entire team pulls together, and the ideas start flowing! We understand that no two sites are the same and often require customization or something totally unique. Wishbone offers a wide range of possibilities, from modifying one of our existing designs or creating a custom solution to get the most out of your space.

Customized Site Furnishing Solutions
Many of our products can be adapted to meet a client’s specific need, or we can design something completely unique. Click on the images below for some examples of the customization work we have done including:
The Perma-Pad - A Better Alternative to Concrete Slabs
Having installed park benches in many communities and parks in Canada and the US, it occurred to us that there had to be a better way on which to fasten our site furnishings instead of simply on the old-fashioned concrete slab.
With so much waste plastic at our fingertips, the idea for the Perma-Pad™ materialized. Our innovative and environmentally friendly alternative to the concrete pad is the safest choice to reduce the impact on the environment, protect sensitive green space and tree protected areas, while keeping our parks looking naturally beautiful.We’ve also designed the Perma-Pad™ for use with a variety of different sized furnishings, from benches to waste receptacles, so that you can maintain a consistent aesthetic. Best of all, you’ll end up saving money by installing the Perma-Pad™.
Low-maintenance, environmentally friendly, endless installation purposes...it's no wonder so many are switching from wood to the Perma-Post™. Thousands of wood posts are scattered across North America, and all need constant maintenance, staining and/or painting. Eventually they all need replacing due to decay when in contact with moisture within the ground, but that isn't so with the Perma-Post™.
Increasingly, there are many great applications for our Perma-Post™ products including way-finder signage, kilometre and directional markers, hiking and biking trail markers, campsite number posts, roadside bollards and even park water stands. Perma-Post™ are easy to install on a concrete footing or directly in the ground, and where extra levelling and stabilizing is required, with re-bar through the base. Over their lifetime they will save hundreds of dollars because they require little to no maintenance and are resistant to all weather conditions.
Spending anytime outdoors, people eventually need to relieve themselves. Wishbone offers an extensive line of buildings to accommodate when ‘nature calls’ and help to enhance and compliment the outdoor experience.
More often than not an outhouse is needed in a location that isn't always easily accessible. Our team designed the Outhouse Buildings for ease of shipping and assembly in mind. They are shipped completely unassembled and each component can be carried in either manually, on horseback, or if the budget allows, by helicopter. Most of the buildings can be fully assembled at the location by two people in under two hours.
36,849 lbs of recycled materials were used in September! Wow! These numbers continue to climb, and we are super proud of it! This has been the foundation of Wishbone Site Furnishings from the beginning - Solutions for the Future from Pieces of the Past. We love seeing these numbers climb every month and will continue to share the numbers each month.
