We removed two regular swings and hung the new porch swing from a twelve foot standard already in place using some of the pre-existing chain. It is a delight.
The curved back of the porch swing is more comfortable than straight backs. The box was damaged, but not the products inside. Instructions were clear and all hardware had been included. The lime green color is beautiful in the yard. Looks well made but might need some stiffening for heavy weights. Overall very pleased - exactly what we wanted.
This swing is very well made. It is sturdy and very comfortable even without cushions.
