Summer began and happy summer visitors are streaming out of the city to be alone with nature, take care of the garden and simply have some rest.
Somebody comes to a country villa for a vacation or day-offs, somebody comes to live here for the entire season. Of course, they take kids to let them get some fresh air far from the dusty city. Because it’s so nice to do plenty of running about and after that eat a crispy fresh cucumber right from the garden.
It’s great when there is plenty of space for games in the garden. And what is better – when there is a swing in it.
A swing can be placed in any corner of your garden. You and your family members can read favorite books in it or even get to sleep for a while.
Due to the fact that a swing doesn’t take much space, it can be placed even in the smallest garden. You don’t need to make a special covering or bottom for it. You don’t need to be worried about it when the weather is bad – jsut cover a swing with a case.
A swing can be installed at the very beginning of spring and it will be a perfect relax place for you till the first frosts.
Assortment and diversity of types of a garden swing is really huge at the modern market. Often it is produced of metal, sometimes wood is used.
Simple metallic models are made of tubes of average diameter as well as an angle bar.
Wooden swing is the most beautiful and is perfectly blend with any landscape design. It is produced of solid wood, decorated with cut lace or made in the form of a garden pergola. This type of construction has a negative feature – it requires care and subtle treatment. Wood needs to be processed to protect it from the rains and various insects.
Of couse, you can order a custom-made swing to consider all your preferences and wishes. But this will cost you pretty penny.
A standard garden swing can have one, two or three sits, to be folding or in the form of a simple sofa, to have or not to have an adjustable back.
As a rule, the set includes a frame, a special case, an awning, cusions or a mattress.
The frame’s weight varies from 20 to 70 kg, maximum load can reach 300 kg. Remember this when purchasing a swing as this criterion affect safety of use.
The diameter of tubes the frame is produced of is also an important parameter. The more it is, the stronger and safer a swing will be. Usually this parameter varies from 32 to 64 mm.
In the majority of cases the sits are made of a net – welded or wattled. Cushions can be of any material and any color – this depends on a designer’s imagination. You’d better purchase a variant with removable cases that you can wash or replace any time. Packing should be of a foam-rubber granules – they are more durable and softer than a whole piece.
