Safety Zones. As a rule of thumb, it's great to plan for about a 6' safety zone around the perimeter of your swing set as pictured in the diagram to the right. This gives kids plenty of room to zoom down the slide, climb up the rock wall, or swing sky high on the swings. This also gives children enough “tumble room” if they happen to loose their balance or trip while playing on the play set.
You can find safety zone information under the “specs” tab for each swing set we carry.
Leveling. It's important to set up your swing set in a relatively level area of your yard to ensure that your swing set is stable. In most cases you can simply dig one side of the set down up to 3” to correct minor leveling issues.
