Thursday, January 14th, 2010

Do you feel that your garden needs something different? Are your plants and decorations just not enough? Maybe you could use a porch swing or patio swing. Both offer different ways of decorating your garden. They also offer an inviting atmosphere for guests. Of course, these swings come in different styles, shapes, and sizes. It’s important for you to know the differences before selecting either one. This article will talk to you about different patio and porch swings, and what one may be perfect for you.

A porch swing is exactly what the name says. They are mostly used for your porch. These types of swings are only ideal if you have a large porch. You could also have a porch that connects to your in ground swimming pool. You may want to have a porch swing near that. Of course, you and your guests wouldn’t want to get splashed! These swings usually come with their own separate stands. You can also connect them to the roof of your porch, if you have one. Most swings usually fit up to four people, depending on which kind you prefer. You can also purchase them in fabric or wood versions.

A patio swing, on the other hand, is good for a smaller porch area. They will typically sit up to two people. It’s perfect for couples who want to enjoy the sunset together. You can usually set these swings on your patio or in your garden. They add a nice touch to any kind of garden. Some of these swings also come with a gazebo. This will make entertaining in the summer time a lot more fun. This brings an inviting style to any backyard.

Always make sure to do your homework when choosing different swing styles. Of course, you don’t want to end up with a child’s swing set! It may be cute, but wouldn’t be appropriate for an adult party. You can find the different styles of swings at various home stores. It’s always best to observe each one, especially the prices. Do your homework on the pricing as well. A similar style could cost less at a different store.

Lastly, you should make sure that your patio swing or porch swing is sturdy. The last thing you want is for your guests to come crashing down on the ground! This can be very humorous; but dangerous as well. You should always check the information to see how many pounds the swing holds up to.

No matter what type of swing you choose, it will bring your garden together. You’re more than likely to enjoy the outdoors more. Even if you’re not fond of being outside! 😉
