Have a big strong tree in your backyard around your garden? The perfect thing to do is to put that giant tree to use! An elegant swing would be a wonderful add on to that tree.

These tree swings can be as simple or as elaborate as you would like! A simple tree swing would look like the one you use to swing on when you were a child. Or you can purchase extremely large and comfortable swings to hang on the tree! Either way, find what works best for your lifestyle.

Tree swings can be something you can easily do yourself. You will need some basic items such as wood, rope, glue, screws, “s” hooks, and chains. HGTV gives step by step instructions on how to make a tree swing yourself!
