Backyard tree swinging – oh I’m so nostalgic for this. From a simple reclaimed bench swing to the Rolls Royce of tree swings – here we go.
Up & Away Swing by the Oak and Rope Company : A nice chunk of oak with a sturdy manila rope and you’re ready to fly. Many swing ropes used to be made of hemp (soft for hands) or manila but not often these days.
Handmade leaf swing by Veronica Martinez : A hand-carved artisan swing!
Spinning Swing by Swing and Spin : This is getting really fun. Add a spin to your swing.
Cacoon from Loopee Design : They’re like tree hanging tents. Offering shade and a cosy inside, I’d love to spend a whole day in it.
If you have a huge budget and a huge garden – here’s what’s called Swingrest Hanging Lounge. It may justify the cost because we’re likely to abandon the house and spend the whole summer on it. Though may need to rent out the house to pay for it.
Babies love swinging too!
