Creating A Garden Swing In Your Backyard
Backyard garden swings bring to mind lazy, carefree days in the past. Making a backyard garden swing is a simple process, and in just a few hours. Make a homemade backyard tire swing using regular, not steel-belted, tires, 3/8-inch link diameter hardened steel chains, heavy eye-bolts and chain connectors. Place the tire on its side and attach three heavy eye-bolts around the top, space the bolts equally apart. Attach 3- to 5-foot-long lengths of chain to each bolt, gather the chains together at the free end and slide them on a locking swivel hook. Attach a hanging chain to a sturdy tree branch and to the swivel hook via a connector. Drill several drainage holes around the perimeter of the underside of the tire swing so that water will not accumulate inside it. Spray the inside of the tire semi-annually with insect repellent to prevent nesting.
Create a backyard garden tree swing using a 3/4-inch-thick board, roughly 20 inches wide and 35 inches long, and sturdy rope. Drill a hole through each corner of the board, 2 inches away from the edges. The hole should be large enough to fit the rope through. Cut two equal lengths of rope, one for each side of the swing. Thread one end down through the top of one hole on the right side of the board, across the underside of the board between the two holes and up through the other hole on the right side. Pull the rope through the second hole 2 feet, then tie the rope to itself, 1-1/2 feet from the board to form a triangle. Do the same on the left side of the board with the second rope. Tie the ropes around a thick tree limb, or tie them to metal connector rings hanging from a limb.
