Don’t you feel your excitement rise up when you sit on a swing? Doesn’t the to-and-fro motion give you an adrenaline rush? It does, right?

Swings bring in a flood of childhood memories of us having a gala time with our friends in a park spring, or of us swinging in the playgrounds of our school.

Swings have given and still continue to give this sense of freedom and independence, where each movement is under the reins of our senses.

The sheer euphoria of surrendering to the swing and being yourself without any inhibitions reminds me of Virginia Woolf’s famous quote from ‘A room of one’s own’-“No need to worry, no need to sparkle, no need to be anybody else but be oneself.

Let us take our love for swings to another level by not restricting it to just a splendid childhood memory.Why not take a step ahead and install swings in our garden?

For a child-friendly garden, swings are ideal as they will engage your children when you want to peacefully accomplish all your gardening endeavors. However, having swings in the garden doesn’t mean that they would simply appeal to your children.

In fact, swings can serve as one of the most interesting garden accessories.

Even for an aged individual, relaxing in the swing provides coziness and a temporary refuge from drudgery. The best attribute about the swings is that they are both functional as well as aesthetic. A lazy winter afternoon blended with warm sun rays can be spent well on a swing along with the company of a good novel or some soothing music.

The type of swing that you want to install should be determined by the space in your garden. Let us discuss the different types of swings and then you can decide the one that can be well accommodated in your garden spaces.
