Moving on to the Fun


When looking for a climbing frame, the size of your outdoor garden will almost dictate which play system is right for you. However, it is always best to measure up. As you are planning your DIY climbing frame build it is best to make sure that the play structure is at least 2 metres away from any possible dangers. For example, solid structures, dangerous objects or water features. It is also best to leave plenty of space around the climbing frame for swinging and running around area for the children and all their adventures.
