If you thought that swings are by far the most comfortable pieces of furniture you can put on your porch or patio, think again. Highback swings go one step further: the back goes all the way from 32 to 42 inches, to provide total support for your back, neck and head. So, now, when you swing, your neck is safe, leaning on the high back. No need to worry about your head snapping back when you fall asleep, soothed by the smooth, comfortable swinging motion. These high back swings come in all shapes, forms and models, from Uwharrie luxurious, chunky swings to timeless red cedar swing, treated pine or recycled plastic. If your highback swing is going to stay outdoors year around, your best choices are swing made of hardwoods such as cedar or cypress, or swings made of recycled plastic. Treated pine is also a good choice, if you are looking for a maintenace free wood. There is a reason all those picnic tables in parks across America are made from it. Make sure that all metal moving parts are regularly oiled to avoid rust damage and annoying squeaking sound.
