There is a common misconception out there that playsets in backyards are eyesores, distracting from the overall appeal of the home. Which can be true. Perhaps you have seen dilapidated, rusty, neglected playsets amongst yellowing grass and weeds galore in the backyards of friends and neighbors. However, there’s potential for backyard playsets to add value to your home and deliver safety, pleasure, and timeless adventures for years to come. How can that be made possible? Read on and allow us to bust the myth of the eyesore in the backyard.
When done correctly, backyard playsets can be a beautiful addition to your home. As with any investment, take your time and do your research in order to make the best selection possible. The most important thing to consider is how your selection will enhance the beauty of your home, not take away from it.
Playsets are available in a variety of materials, but choose the one that requires little to no maintenance and won’t be affected by weather damage. Rusting, chipping playsets can be distracting. Swing set construction using vinyl requires the least amount of upkeep and this material is built to last, providing your structure with a great deal of durability.
Another thing to consider is that the design of the structure and colors complement the overall aesthetic of your home. Experiment with different colors and determine which will match your exterior facade.
Furthermore, the landscaping around your playset will make your child’s play area appealing to the eye and more welcoming. A landscape timber will give your backyard a nice, polished look, creating a border around your playset. Planting trees within a safe distance can provide a nice source of natural shade for children while adding to the beauty of your backyard.
Let’s face it, families invest in playsets as a source of enjoyment for their children. Having a playset is a great way to encourage outdoor play. It can also serve as an alternative to spending time away from the home in search of outdoor activities. Why leave the house, when your family can have a great time in your own backyard?
When homebuyers are in search of a house, a great looking, quality playset can be appealing for many reasons. Whether it be a family with children, a family planning to have children in the future, or grandparents who have frequent visits from their grandchildren, a large number of homebuyers have relationships with young children who could benefit from a backyard playset. A well-thought-out playset design and a dedicated landscaping plan can really give your home the extra edge when it comes time to selling your home.
