Flexible Flyer Lawn Swing Frame Review
When I bought my house, I was so excited that it came with a front porch and a backyard. I had always lived in apartments my whole life, so having both of these things was a totally new experience for me. After we had settled in, however, I felt like something was missing.
My wife and I liked to sit on the front porch, but what we decided that we needed was a porch swing. My grandmother had a porch swing at her old house, and I have fond memories of sitting on it.
Unfortunately, trying to install a porch swing wasn’t really feasible, until I found the Flexible Flyer Lawns Swing Frame. Although it is designed to work on the grass, this sturdy frame will work on almost any flat surface, and it was the perfect size for our porch. Plus, once we have kids, we can move it to the back or keep it where it is, because the frame itself is lightweight and easy movable.
If you’re interested in getting a swing for your backyard, patio, or front porch, I would highly suggest getting this frame.
When trying to figure out how we could get a swing on our porch, I was looking at all kinds of swing sets and other options. What I liked about the Flexible Flyer, though, was that the frame was made of sturdy powder coated steel and could hold up to 600 pounds. I’m rather hefty, and my wife is robustly healthy (please don’t tell her I said that), so we needed something that could support the both of us. This frame does the job without any issues.
When I first saw the frame, I was a little upset that it didn’t come with a swing. However, I soon realized that this was actually a good thing since it meant that I could buy whatever swing I wanted and put it on the frame. To that end, I wound up buying a rustic looking porch swing made out of metal and wood, and it works like a dream. With this frame, you can get whatever model swing fits your lifestyle.

When I showed my wife the Flexible Flyer Swing Frame, she was skeptical that it would fit on our porch, and she worried that it would leave gouges in the wood. Thankfully, I made a quick adjustment and added feet to the frame so it wouldn’t scratch or cut into the porch, and it fit perfectly.
What I like about this frame is that it will fit in a wide variety of spaces since it has a relatively slim profile. Whether you want it on your grass or your porch, this swing can go almost anywhere.
