DIY Playsets, Play Houses, Swing Sets and Playgrounds

Everything you need to know about installing one in your backyard

Any parent would love for their own backyard to be their kids’ favorite place to play. For this reason, backyard playsets, play houses, swing sets and playgrounds are becoming more and more popular. They are available online and at most major retailers (Walmart, Home Depot, Lowes and Costco to name a few). And many units are available for a few hundred bucks – not the thousand or so bucks you might expect.

So families are taking advantage!

But, unfortunately, too many families are not adequately prepared to erect a playset, play house, swing set or playground that is safe and attractive.
