When purchasing a playset for your yard:

  • Choose a set your children use for years to come.
  • Consider the activities your children enjoy.
  • Choose a playset that can be expanded as your children grow.
  • Select a playset made from durable wood material such as cedar or redwood when possible. While pressure-treated pine can be used, make sure the preservative doesn’t contain chromium or arsenic.
