We have put a swing up in our verge tree. I know there are liability issues, but also know it’s a great play space and a great way to meet other local families. What are your views?

  • My brother and I used to climb our verge tree all the time as kids and fortunately never had an accident. Hanging a swing from the tree might mean that any accidents caused by the swing would be your fault – I wouldn’t risk it.



  • I think as long as you have a big verge and it doesn’t impact on pedestrians etc, then it’s a nice idea. I’d just be keeping my eyes on them like a hawk!



  • It’s a great outside activity, but in today’s world I wouldn’t leave the kids out there unattended, it’s just not safe unfortunately



  • yeah great idea until the neighbours complain. i hope that you live in a good neighbourhood. i am not trying to be mean but some people are negative like that and complain about everything.

    It is a cool idea though, don’t get me wrong!



  • I’m not sure about the liability issues, but I think it’s a wonderful idea!
