Measuring for Success: Things to Think About when Purchasing a New Playset
When it comes to purchasing a new playset, there are a few important factors to consider before making your final decision. In this post, we’ll go over three of the most important considerations that you should keep in mind to ensure that you get the most out of your playset purchase.
Do You Have Enough Space for the Playset?
One of the most important considerations when purchasing a playset is ensuring that you have enough space to accommodate it. Before you start browsing through different playset options, take the time to measure your yard to determine the maximum size of the playset that you can fit. This will help you to narrow down your options and ensure that you only consider playsets that will fit comfortably in your yard.
Another important factor to consider is the amount of space that you want to leave around the playset. Keep in mind that you’ll want to leave enough space for children to play safely around the playset, as well as for adults to easily access the playset for maintenance and repairs.
Is Your Yard Flat Enough for the Playset?
In addition to ensuring that you have enough space for the playset, it’s also important to ensure that your yard is flat enough to accommodate it. If your yard is sloped or uneven, this can make it difficult to install the playset safely and securely.
Before you purchase a playset, take the time to evaluate your yard and identify any potential areas of concern. If your yard is sloped, for example, you may need to level it out before installing the playset to ensure that it is stable and secure.

Is My Yard Easily Accessible From the Street?
Finally, it’s important to consider the logistics of delivering and installing your playset. Make sure that you have access from the street to your backyard, as this will make it much easier for the delivery team to transport the playset to your yard.
If you have a narrow driveway or other obstacles, like trees or fences that could make delivery difficult, make sure to discuss these concerns with your sales representative when you are purchasing the playset. They may be able to provide alternative delivery options or make other arrangements to ensure that your playset is delivered safely and securely.
