When embarking on the important yet daunting task of finding the right outdoor playset for your family, perhaps it is important that first of all you … Save a little cash.
If you are handy or just determinedly frugal, then you can assemble it yourself, but you’ll want to find one that is pre-drilled, pre-stained and pre-beveled to save yourself extra work! Gorilla Outdoor Playsets have just the right product line of backyard playground equipment to accomodate this requirement and many more as well.
Know how much space you have to work with. Get measurements on the space and playset to prevent purchasing an oversized playset.
Pay close attention to safety features. Since your outdoor playset will attract neighborhood kids, make sure you select the safest one you can find. Safety latches, railings and non-slip accents will enhance any playset.
Look for playsets with add-on features. For example, some playsets have the ability to turn into a pirate’s ship or castle.
Talk to a salesperson about maintenance. Wood playsets may need to be re-stained every few years and some maintenance is covered under a limited warranty.
Select a playset with some sun coverage. Many outdoor playsets have tents or roofs keeping the playset in partial sunlight.
