Default Swing Set Help

We have a swing set and there is not mat or padding therefore over the years the dip under the swing keeps getting deeper, we have filled with dirt but just keeps doing it.
What do you put under the swing to prevent this?

I don't have that issue with my swing set, but the horse person in me says: Layer of gravel, layer of lime dust, and put a stall mat over it.

I used a large piece of indoor outdoor carpet.It worked like a charm .I never had to replace it in 5 years great for spring and winter no mud.I chose the green grass look kind.

You know, Iíve been looking at products to put on concrete in my carport to make a covered outdoor play area......you think this would work? Mostly for my kids that arenít yet so sure on their feet.
