Our swings come in two hard-case boxes and a zipper bag that contains the cushions. They are freestanding swings hence do not require overhead points to be sturdily connected as it is in the case with porch swings. Professional installation is not required but we recommend it is done by two people, specifically for hanging the bench. Installation hardware and guidelines are provided within the packages for home DIY. Cushions can be kept in the original watertight zipper bag during winter months. We also sell full swing size watertight covers as additional accessory, so please check with us in your next order!
