Playground Safety in Your Own Backyard

DataVault.jpgWith the start of a new school year, parents tend to have a lot on their mind. One topic that seems to come up a lot is playground safety. Although Lifetime doesn’t influence school ground safety, Lifetime does make a variety of home playground equipment built specifically with your child’s safety in mind. We have rubberized chain grips on our swing sets and playsets to prevent little fingers from being caught or pinched, and all hard edges have been rounded or covered. Our UV-protected, powder-coated steel and high-density polyethylene are heat resistant and will not burn kids on a sunny day like many metal or plastic outdoor toys. Our playground equipment passes all playground safety standards to ensure your child’s safety.

Our playground equipment is built durable and safe; however, it is also important to create a safe environment that has plenty of room and is free from safety hazards. We have a few suggestions and safety zone dimensions for our products to help you get started in making your home playground as safe and fun for your kids as possible. For a full list of specifications, dimensions, and safety zone tips for each product visit the Lifetime Online Store.

My favorite products from Lifetime- Our current family favorite is the Big Stuff Hard Roof Play set.  The boys and their cousins LOVE it!  Since our home has the tendency to become a gathering place, we get the most use out of our large array of Lifetime Folding Tables.  We have our eye on the Ace Flyer for Christmas.  I have grand plans for The 60” Lifetime Mammoth Basketball System, I just need to first do a little backyard excavation for the play area.

I Mulch, You Mulch, We All Mulch
This past Saturday was yard day at our house. Nine solid hours of pruning trees, trimming bushes, pulling weeds, planting flowers, and spreading mulch. (Why didnt someone remind me that my hamstrings will be extremely sore from bending over all day. Its been two days and I still cant sit down without using my arms to lower myself!) Its the project we tackle every spring. I actually look forward to it. I love being outdoors and feeling productive. (Of course, that enthusiasm quickly fades after the first few hours which is why we plow through it all in one day.) Our backyard has several forests as my kids call them, which are really just large clusters of trees with mulch around them. Very pretty, but itrequires a lot of mulch - over three yards (or pick-up trucks full) to be exact. This year, we turned the mulching into a f...
Happy (Early) Father's Day to Our Shed Giveaway Winner!
Thanks to everyone who entered this month's giveaway to try and win the Lifetime 7'x7'Shed for their Dad for Father's Day. We received some very touching stories about how much your Dads mean to you and why you wanted to win this shed for Dad. But, in the end, the winner picked by random.org was Sonya R. of Knoxville, TX. Congrats, Sonya. We hope your husband enjoys this year's Father's Day present for years to come! We also heard some great feedback about which features you liked best about this relatively-new Lifetime 7'x7' Shed. By far (and not surprisingly), the feature most of you liked the best was the full-length roof skylight. That's a pretty awesome addition to a shed! Other popular answers were the shatterproof windows that open and the customizable shelving. If you fell in love with this shed but weren't the luck...
