Great advantage of free-standing swings is that you can put them wherever you like. But, not all of us are fortunate to have large trees that offer pleasant shade from the hot afternoon sun. Not to worry, what you need is a canopy swing. You might like the look of powder coated steel, sturdy and elegant, with a canvas canopy in any color you like or which goes with your house. You can also choose a solid canopy made of durable plastic. There are three-seaters if you like to snuggle, or two-seaters, with individual seats and canopies. If you prefer the look of wood, you can pick cedar, treated pine or oak, stained for natural beauty or painted in any color you desire. You can have a colorful canvas canopy, or if you are a big gardener, a canopy that looks like a trellis, so that you’re climbing vines can make a canopy of their own. So many choices, all wonderful, there is surely one for you.
