We had the swing made in house. Its a custom design. We could do one similar if wanted.

Here are some additional photos. Glad that you liked this swing arbor.
If needed we could work something out and draw out a set of construction details. Please let us know any further questions.

Is gravel beneficial instead of putting a slab down or leave with just grass. I think just grass. Note - some stepping stones to this location. Note Menards has blocks that looks very simlar to use
