Anchoring a childs swing in ground with depth of only 7"?

Postby unhandygrandad » Tue May 05, 2020 8:22 am

Morning All, I have a child`s swing to anchor (metal tubular frame) for my granddaughter. Unfortunately, the potential site has only around 7” depth of earth with a concrete base / platform below. Could anyone please advise, is anchoring a swing feasible in such shallow ground? and what would be the best method / approach? Thanks in advance

Simply Build It

Having that 7" depth is still feasible as long as there is proper support for the metal tubular frame like the hard cemented foundation. And also, make sure that the swing is for the children only. Don't let the adult ride on it.
