Ideas on re-cycling an un-used wood frame playset in my garden?

Texas, United States Us

I have a wooden frame that used to be a swinging playset for my daughters. The swinging playset is no longer being used and I would like to know if anyone has any ideas, on what to use the wooden frame for, I would like to re-cycle and use it in my yard. I thought about hanging a hammock. Please help me with ideas. I also thought about using it as a trellis.



Sounds like it could be used for a cold frame to over winter plants in? If its attractive wood how about building and Arch for a climbing rose?

Hi there,

I think a frame for climbing roses would be great, or a canopy to fit over a bench or seat, it depends on the type of wood. If it is round steaks, I've seen some cut at different lengths and planted vertically, and stained or painted to make a great sculptural feature to plant around.

Happy gardening.
