Custom-Built Wooden Residential Playsets

Carolina Backyards specializes in residential and commercial wooden playsets with professional installation services, competitive pricing, and quality customer service. Every model is built entirely from pre-treated, top grade lumber with safety in mind. Simply start with one of the base models listed below and customize it to achieve the final product that suits the needs of your family, church, or community the best. 

Custom-built from scratch right here in our Gilbert, SC shop, Carolina Backyards playsets are built for children of every age, from 3-103.  Unlike the competition, we do not completely rebuild our outdoor display every year. As a matter of fact, come see the “Weathering Model” which is a large Skyscraper built in February 2012 - front and center on the display yard so you can see how graceful your Carolina Backyards playset will weather in the worst of conditions – full sun.  LOCAL INSTALLATION IS STANDARD WITH ALL OF OUR PLAYSETS!  Call us for a free local on-site evaluation and custom quote today!
