Just a few minutes of swinging in your Amish swings, on the porch overlooking the garden, will take away all your stress and soothe your tired body and mind. Amish know how to make their swings: each piece is made and assembled by hand. The skill and passion that go into making these magnificent swings makes them heritage pieces, something that you would be proud to leave to your kids. You have the choice between red cedar, yellow pine and recycled plastic. The color choices will leave you bewildered – how to choose between natural wood color, vivid tropicals or soothing pastels? It is even more difficult to choose between smooth Mission style lines, swings with little hearts carved in the back, or whimsical fan-shape. Both red cedar and treated yellow pine are easy to maintain, but it is better to keep them indoors during the winter. Plastic porch swings can be easily left outdoors, they can withstand anything Mother Nature can dish out. Amish porch swings are crafted with high quality hardware and extremely strong support chains, but make sure that they are inspected for rust and regularly oiled.
