Giving over your lawn to a climbing frame?

Since moving in here 2 years ago I have worked really hard on the garden, now going into my 3rd year and I have already carried out a 3rd redesign on it. My aim this year was for it to be nice to look at buy lower maintenance. To accept that the 2 huge conifers in both neighbours gardens where here to stay along with their water sucking roots and bits falling off them.

The lawn which was more patches than grass when I moved in is nearly complete grass now, and looking rather lovely (thanks to this rain!).

So why am I now searching for climbing frames on eBay? My garden is not big, and anything in it is not hidden from view so deciding if I will give over a large part of it for a climbing frame and slide is a big decision.

Once I had a search on eBay I was really surprised at the bargains to be had, especially of the TP explorer sets there were quite a few locally.

It would be great for Ben to have in the garden to play on, and do we really need lawn with nothing on just to look at? As long I can get a sun lounger And table and chairs out do I need more room?

And I do love a good bargain…

Gah…why did I start looking!
