Installing a backyard playground for the kids sounds like a good idea at first thought.  Coming from the perspective of a father providing for his family, it seems likes a virtuous and especially masculine undertaking to not only purchase the item, but perform the significant manual labor of the assembly and installation process.  Many a time, this means many hours spent working, complex assembly process prone to errors, omissions and potential safety issues, and eventual frustration.  It may have seemed like a great idea, but eventually it becomes clear that experts and professionals are the better option.

Safety is the primary concern, especially when dealing with equipment that will be used for children.  The amount of parts and pieces in the average swing set is about 400, this means the possibility of mistakes and omissions is very high for the non-expert.  For other, smaller items like backyard sheds, safety is still important but complexity is not as much of a problem. It's especially important to make sure all the pieces, nuts bolts and braces are properly in place and secured.  This is no easy task for a regular person, but it common place for the professional technicians that do this for a living.  Companies that install playsets can do it at least a few times a month, so they are used to it, and have experience in most all common brands, makes and models. 

Durability is another concern, especially for a product that can cost upwards of $5,000.  Playgrounds should last for the entirety of your child's younger years, and in the case of multiple children, even longer.  For this it is important to do two things: Make sure you have a high quality product, and make sure you have a highly skilled and experienced professional for the assembly process.  Checking review sites like Porch.com, Angie's List and Homeadvisor is a good first step when reviewing a potential company. Making sure they have a properly designed website is another sign of legitimacy.  Social profiles, especially with followers and members, are also important.

Whatever you do, make sure that it is done fully, completely, durably and safely, so that all the experiences for years to come are ones of joy, and safety is not ever a concern.  A playground is a beautiful addition to a household, so expert assembly is a perfectly reasonable expense to justify.
