How to Place and Install Swing Set from Component Playgrounds

playground Installation Process

There are actually several regulations in place that govern how you can set up playground equipment on your property. Knowing how to properly install your playground will allow kids safe play for years to come.

Consult with a Certified Playground Safety Inspector before building, as they can quickly identify any hazardous or non-compliant placements. When you are ready to personalize your playground set up, we will provide you a handy diagram to determine the space you need to have in your backyard to properly set things up. For example, a standard 12' swing will need a 17' long and a 24' wide space to sit in.

How Will My Swing Set Be Delivered?

When ordering playground equipment from us, we ship using a common carrier truck to ensure the safest delivery possible. This is a little different than standard UPS or USPS delivery, as packages arrive on a large pallet. The driver delivers them straight to your curbside and unloads them there. Our galvanized steel playgrounds are much lighter than other wooden sets, meaning it is quite easy to begin the installation yourself. For smaller packages such as parts, we typically ship Fed-Ex for your convenience.

How Do I Install My Swing Set Myself?

You don't need to be a hardcore Do-It-Yourselfer to set up your new playground set. In fact, it's really quite simple! The tools you need are things that most homes already have such as a wheelbarrow, shovel, hammer, tape measurer, permanent marker, and ladder. Typically, it only takes a few hours to build with two people working.
