Outdoor Play Equipment Options

When it comes to outdoor play equipment, homeowners have many options. One of the simpler choices is a wood unit with swings and a slide. Homeowners may choose to install a tire swing in addition to standard swings to add variety. Other equipment such as a miniature climbing wall, fireman's pole or monkey bars could be part of a more complex unit.

Cost Factors for Installation

Many factors affect the cost of installing outdoor play equipment. Larger sets cost more than a simple slide and swing unit. Outdoor play equipment needs to be installed on a level surface, and depending on the backyard, significant landscape grading may be required. Trees and other obstacles may also need to be removed to make room.

Work With a Professional

Outdoor play equipment must be installed carefully. For safety, the structure needs to be securely anchored to concrete. It must also be located a safe distance from overhead branches, wires and other obstacles. The ground covering needs to be deep enough to help cushion falls. During installation, homeowners must also be concerned with the location of underground utility cables. It’s a good idea to work with a professional to ensure the installation goes smoothly.
