Playset fit in Small Area - This looks great! I'm looking at getting a playset to fit into a small area in our backyard, I'm curious to know how much room you allowed for on each of the sides? Thanks.

There's 5' on each side and the fort is 4x4'. If you have a slide you would need more space, at least 10' out from the fort for a 7' slide and 3' landing.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Theme Gardens
The play garden. Juggling play space and garden design can be a challenge. You're often left with a swingset in the middle of your lawn and a sand pit where your conversation pit once stood. Instead of putting play structures in a safe spot and hoping for the best, incorporate them into the entire design.Design tip: Matching the wood and the design of the play structure to the wood of the fence and bench helps pull everything together.
