Swing stands are perfect swing accessories for people who like to have the freedom to place their swings wherever they like. Porch swing stands even allow you to move your swing to a different location in your garden, depending on the season. In the spring, you like your swing close to the house, in the summer you need a bit of a shade from a large tree, in the fall it is great to place it next to a flowering shrub to be closer to nature. And even in the winter your sturdy swing can give your kids a lot of fun if you place it on the porch, close to the house, so that the kids can run inside when it gets too cold to swing. A quick cup of hot cocoa with some melted marshmallows will have them back outside swinging in no time. Swing stands are often times made of metal or wood, and are guaranteed to sustain the type and size of swing you are buying the stand for. Most swing stand frames have a 500 lb. weight capacity to safely swing 2 or 3 adults. Keep your swing stand well maintained and all swing hanging hardware well oiled and the stand will serve you for many years.
