Our advice Buying Guide

A playground can be within a few feet of your home when equipment is set up in your backyard. There are many more options than a single swing set and slide to select from in today's market. Different equipment in various styles, colors, and materials will ensure fun for the kids.

Material

  • Wood - Cedar wood delivers sturdy decks, steps, and frames for wooden swing sets. Up to 1000 pounds can be held with no fear of too many kids playing. Decay resistant, repelled by insects and possessing a natural beauty, cedar is a favorite for adding backyard playground equipment.             
  • Metal - Teeter totters are secure and functional when built with heavy duty steel and protected with a rust-proof finish. Monkey bars and seesaws also use metal to create safe playing. Swing sets are available in metal that is powder-coated for extensive use. These are timeless pieces that can be kept for both children and grandchildren.
  • Plastic - Hexagon monkey bars and smaller swing sets and slides that are made from Polyethylene are good for tots that do not exceed 240 pounds in total weight. Bright colors are built into the material so there is never any chipping. Waterproof and dependable, this material can last for years.
  • Rope - Nylon rope with a 250-pound capacity sets the scene for Ninja Warrior Training or exploring on a Jungle Jim. 

Styles

Covered platforms, details of house roofs and windows, and modern molded shapes make a backyard come alive with anticipation of fun. For limited space, a see-saw that measures 55" in length can be set almost anywhere and easily moved. If considering a large cedar swing set, consider the proportion to surrounding buildings and the land that is available. Some units are as tall as 12'6" and as wide as 23'. This is more of a permanent structure on your property.

Types 

  • Swing Sets - Swing sets come in metal, wood or plastic. If a slide is attached, it will be made of sturdy Polyethylene. Rope or metal chains secure the swings.
  • Climbing Sets - A variety of shapes and sizes for climbing and swinging are sturdy with metal, wood or plastic bases. Choose the design appropriate for your age group.
  • Seesaws - Teeter-totters and seesaws come in large and small models of plastic or metal. Metal has adjustable lengths.
  • Forts - Large wood or smaller plastic forts provide a platform for sliding, climbing and more.

Maintenance and Care

There is little that is required in keeping backyard playground equipment ready for use. Wiping off swing set seats and slides to avoid slippery surfaces should be done after a rain. For dust and dirt build-up, wash with mild detergent and water. Watch for stainless steel bolts that may work loose and tighten where needed. Check the equipment for any damage that could be caused accidentally by children. You may choose to cover the unit during the winter months for better longevity.
