If you do not have a porch and love swings, you will need a stand for swing. A stand for your swing can be as simple as two connected posts set in concrete, or can be very elaborate arbor and pergola that would become instant focal point in your garden. Simple post stands for swings have a distinctive disadvantage that they cannot be moved once installed. If you really like a very simple stand for swing, your best choice are A-frame stands. Usually, swings and their stands are made of the same material: cedar, polywood, cypress, metal or pine. If you decide to go for a pergola-style stand for swing, you will get an instant decorative element that will become an important part of your garden. If you plant some fast growing climber around the stand, it will in time cover it with leaves and blooms and provide shade, fragrance and hours of enjoyable swinging. Whatever style stand for swing you choose, prepare the site for it by leveling the ground and making sure that is solid and will not sink.
