We do provide detailed installation instructions with all our Garden Play products and advise that, due to the size and weight of the timbers involved, a minimum of two strong adults are required to install the equipment safely.
The time taken can all depend upon our stock levels at the time. For standard products, delivery only, we will endeavour to deliver within 14 days, if you require our installation service please contact the office for approximate timing.
Splits and cracks will occur in timber as it expands and contracts with humidity and temperature changes. They will occur particularly in the round pole timbers, but also in square cut timber and they are in new sets as well as old.
The key fact is that we use round timbers for our play equipment equipment. Most people are used to working with square timbers. Round timbers – due to the nature of their structure are more prone to splits and cracks so that when people see the cracks they become concerned as they are not used to seeing this happen.
Whilst these can appear quite large and alarming, these cracks DO NOT affect the strength, integrity and durability of the playsets. The splits and cracks happen because timber is a natural product and is a living material, and through the year the wood expands and contracts, often meaning quite large cracks appear in hot, dry weather, and then close up in the wetter, winter months.
Most of our deliveries are sent by a nationwide courier company.
They operate a 3 day service, Monday to Friday.
Because we use a third party for most of our deliveries, we cannot guarantee delivery on a specific date.
However, for an additional charge, we may be able to organise an overnight/next day delivery or a specific day delivery.
Please call the office to see if this will be possible.
All of our garden range comes with a full set of instructions for you to assemble yourself. However, it is always suggested that 2 practical adults are available. We offer an installation service if required.
We’re based near Kinross in Central Scotland, and cover the majority of the UK – we have delivered and installed our equipment as far north as Thurso and as far south as Devon.
Our standard swing frames are not able to accommodate a basket swing due to its weight. Similarly any swing extensions on the Garden Play Fort, Garden Play Castle and Multi Play Centre are also unable to take the weight of the large basket. Our Family Basket Swing frame has 10cm machine rounded timber legs supporting a 14cm diameter top swing pole and is therefore strong enough to take the full weight of the basket without any problem.
If you live locally to Caledonia Play (KY13 0UN), you can collect equipment from us.
Please call beforehand to ensure we have everything you need in stock.

Artificial grass needs an impact absorbing surface to minimise the risk of injury should the person using the play equipment fall.
We always recommend a shock absorbent under layer which is designed for use under play equipment to be used under artificial grass.
Timber posts have a tendency to rot at the point where they enter the ground – the ground line section. This is now preventable by fitting a postsaver sleeve to the vulnerable part. This will keep the causes of ground rot out and the preservative in, ensuring that the new piece of equipment will last for many years. Metal feet can also be attached to ensure the timber is preserved and to prevent against vandalism to some degree.
We use postsaver sleeves or metal feet as standard on all the products that are sunk into the ground.
More detailed information on the benefits and uses of Postsaver sleeves is available here.
Concrete is not required for our garden range however where ground is uneven or sloping ground anchors can be used to secure the structure. These corkscrew into the grass and are bolted onto the frame allowing them to be easily removed if required. On sloping ground it can also be beneficial to sink legs of a structure into the earth to find a good level. The can be done using a garden spade.
We supply two ground anchors as standard with a standard single swing frame – one for each opposite leg diagonally.
The swing frames will gently sink into the ground and be secure. The ground anchors are supplied in case there is to be a large amount of swinging by adults or larger young people.
On occasion, the weight of the timber can create a sunken area in the grass but the ground anchor prevents the timber sinking into this hole. This can result in the ground anchor holding up the leg rather than the timber sinking further into the ground. This can be avoided by not using ground anchors and allowing the timber to sink into the ground or by using extended legs which are actually dug into the ground and sit securely in the ground. Post saver sleeved are fitted to the section of the legs that is under the ground to help prevent timber rot that may otherwise occur.
The design of our swing frames is such that the product is extremely secure and we have never had a swing frame fall over due to excessive swinging.
The ground anchors offer peace of mind to uncertain individuals who may be concerned when the product lifts off the ground slightly due to excessive swinging.
Our swings are designed for use by all ages of children however they can be used by adults the most popular choices being:
Although this product has been designed for children to use it is also suitable and regularly bought for adult use.
Often thought to be more comfortable than a wooden seat and the soft surface also adds more grip.
The courier will deliver the product to the front of your property but will not unpack it.
Due to the nature of Robinia wood if the MagPost is kept indoors it will dry out and cracks will increase in number and size – keep your MagPost permanently outside or in an unheated shed.
