Everyone likes swinging on the swings. Perhaps, with the exception of those unfortunate people, who get sick from just the thought of to-and-fro movements. A garden swing for kids means fun, thrill and fresh wind blowing in their faces. Tired of big city life, adults associate a swing with the sense of lightness and floating, bringing memories of sweet childhood and giving a chance to forget about gadgets for at least a few minutes. The summer is in full swing and we decided to share a bunch of ideas of garden swings with you – from most trivial (with car tire seats) to most sophisticated (a full-fledged suspended bed for your terrace). So, let’s begin!
Simple garden swings for kids
Making a kid happy with a makeshift garden swing is a piece of cake – just get a good rope, reliable fasteners and a seat of any origin – a wooden plank, a car tire or an old skateboard. Your kid will be happy! And not just the kid
Comfortable garden swings for adults
Making an adult happier is more difficult. They want a seat with a cushion, a pillow, a place in the shade and so that feet didn’t touch the ground. Such a wish list gives you two options: either look for a full-fledged swing in a specialized store or re-make an old arm-chair. However, when it comes to adults you shouldn’t be worried about the amplitude of fluctuations – most grown-up people prefer mild swinging to rotating 360 degrees.
Beautiful garden swings
Let’s not forget that a garden swing can be a piece of art, and besides serving for its intended purpose, it’s an important part of your landscape or terrace. So, when a muse visits you next time (and if you have certain skills, of course), you may try to create a garden swing of your own. But if you need to start swinging right now, hire a professional and have a wrought or wood-carved piece custom-made.
Comfortable garden swings
A garden swing may bring you something more than just the joy of floating – it can be a full-fledged suspended bed, on which you may have a good nap. This is not a dream or a beautiful story of a keen traveler. Should you have a strong desire and insistence, you may hang a full-fledged couch or even a bed. So, we hope that you’ll find an ideal idea for your dream garden swing!
