Choosing the Right Playground Equipment
The size of your yard will be the major factor in deciding which backyard playground is best for you. You’ll want a safe play zone. So, make sure you have at least 6 feet of space around the play sets. We offer a variety of durable, long-lasting playground sets in wood, plastic and metal. Plus, manufacturers are making them easier than ever for you to assemble with pieces that are pre-cut, pre-drilled and pre-stained. In many cases, the playground equipment comes ready-to-assemble with everything you need in the box, including the lumber, accessories and hardware.
So Many Options, So Much Fun
Your new playground equipment can provide kids with hours of creative outdoor play and high-flying fun. There are a variety of accessories and add-ons to choose. Keep your boys and girls busy with a swing, trapeze, monkey bars, a slide, and a see saw. Consider a playground set that has a fort on top and sandbox underneath. Choose other options, like a rock wall, ladder, or snack stand. There are so many options. And, while your kids are playing and having fun, they’re also getting exercise and developing motor skills.
Playground Equipment that Grows with Your Child
The beauty of outdoor playground equipment is that it can grow with your child. For instance, if you’re purchasing playground equipment for your preschooler, you might decide to start with an infant swing or bucket swing, glider and a toddler slide. As your child gets a little older, you can then switch out the accessories. Upgrade that infant swing to a standard belt swing and graduate from the toddler slide to a larger, faster slide.
Let’s Do This!
Once you’ve chosen the playground equipment that’s right for your child, we will deliver it to your curbside, no problem. You’ll have to move your curbside delivery to the area where you’ll set up your outdoor play equipment. Choose a spot that’s level and free and clear of any trees or rocks. If digging is required, be careful not to disrupt any gas or utility lines.
Make time for the setup. You’ll want to set aside a weekend (maybe two) to build your new playset. Most play sets require at least two adults to assemble them.
