Finding a site in your yard for a playset should be done before beginning the process of assembly. If your yard is on a slope or hilly in any way, you may want to consider grading your spot for a flat play area. Remember, children will be playing here for years to come.
- Find an area in your yard that is free of rocks, stumps and other natural debris. Kids will be playing and running often in this area.
- It is recommended to have your spot prepared before the delivery of your new playset.
- Since this is a built structure and little ones will be playing their often, select a spot that has drainage and will not collect water from rain. There is nothing worse than a kid that can’t play on their set when the Sun comes out because it is in one big puddle.
- It is recommended to keep a perimeter of at least 6 feet around the entire structure for safety reasons. This means no other items or fixed structures such as a shed or flower boxes. This empty area should be factored into the selection of the spot in your yard where the structure will be built.
