Playset - Can you give me some information about this playset? Does it have the required clearance for safety? Which company designed it? Thanks!

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.
