Swings for the garden can be purchased at a specialty store, and you can do it yourself. Be inspired by interesting examples from our selection in the photo, which contains garden swings for children and adults.
Country swing do it yourself
One of the most simple options for designing a swing with your own hands is presented in the photo. The seat here is a carefully oshkurennaya board (optimal length of 45-55 cm). To fix the rope, it is necessary to drill 4 holes in its corners at a distance of about 20-25 mm from the edges.
The following photo shows the next budget method of constructing a country swing. Here the ropes are threaded through holes located diagonally, then along the long edge and back to the opposite end. Ropes are knotted so that symmetrical triangles are formed.
We see the real strong grip of fastening in the next photo. In this case, for swing used reliable climbing rope.
Spectacular and reliable option for attaching to the chain, but for the child is not the most optimal. To hold on to such ropes is not very comfortable, since you can rub delicate children’s hands.
To make a double swing, you will need a thicker board, a strong rope and a reliable branch. This option assumes not only the side mounts, but also in the center so that the load is distributed evenly.
Rubber will be convenient and practical material for a swing. It is quite soft and repeats the curves of the body, which is very comfortable. An interesting form in the form of a leaf looks great against the background of the surrounding landscape.
Planning to put a swing, do not forget about the environment around. After all, much more pleasant to swing with a view of the beautiful flowers and flower beds.
Organize a swing under a shed, in a spacious gazebo or covered terrace. So, you can safely swing even in bad weather, dream, watching the magic of torrential rain.
The support for a swing can be used as an arbor: it is enough to cover it with a net and start up a climbing plant.
Rack for a suspended chair can be made of metal pipes. Not less reliable, but simpler option – a stable support in the form of a wooden “tripod”, as in the next photo of the summer swing.
A great idea in the open air will be to organize a spacious lounge: for adults, deck chairs, for children, swings.
For sure to prevent the danger of landing from the swing, arrange it above the sandbox.
Another option for a soft landing with a swing – put them near the water. But this design is more likely for grown-up children and is appropriate only in the case when the child swims well, the reservoir is shallow, and the parents will be near during the ride.
Fascinating part of the sports children’s corner can be a disc swing. The child can not only ride them, but also descend along the ropeway (zip-line).
This version of the wooden swing is used not only for its intended purpose. In addition, the swing is attached to a suspended ladder leading directly to the tree.
And this design will suit even the smallest, who have recently learned to walk. The frame is simple – ropes, slats and removable textile seat.
The original idea is to use a toy car as a seat for a swing. It is only necessary to make holes for the legs and control the height – the feet of the baby should not touch the ground when swinging.
Swing with a ball can be purchased at the store or make your own from a pear for boxing, a fitness ball and a buoy.
A real find for those who want to design a swing with their own hands is a car tire. From it you can come up with many options: multi-seat horizontal, vertical, single swing. And the old tire cut on rags is useful for a fine swing trapeze.
How do you like the idea of a hoop design? The foam rubber and ropes reeled up on a bicycle tire are an excellent basis for sitting.
To make such a hammock, prepare a rope about 200 meters, a stick for stiffness and a hook for weaving.
An alternative to a country swing can be a hanging chair. This design is very convenient and mobile. Having rocked on the street, it is possible to hide the construction in the house from rain.
And in this swing, you will feel as if in a cocoon. This chair is made of artificial rattan, which looks very nice and solid, is lightweight, durable, resistant to temperature changes and fading in the sun.
Do you want to make such a luxury in your country house? Try it, it’s not so difficult. To make the construction of the bars roundness (as in the photo), you must first soak them, boil for several hours, and then give them the desired shape. The last step is to attach the chains to the base of the swing, for which it is better to use strong tree trunks.
Ready garden bench is easy to transform into a beautiful swing. Saw off legs or leave as is. But in the latter case, the design will be heavier and with a more moderate swinging amplitude.
Swing can be constructed from the bed frame. Hide it with varnish and complete it with a mattress with small decorative pillows.
More interesting options for projects of the swing are presented in the next selection in the photo.
Swings in the country can be not only children’s entertainment, but also a luxurious, romantic holiday destination for adults.
