The latest addition is a child-friendly ‘bridge/ladder’ over a roofing iron fence from the pigpen to the playground. How appropriate!

Talk about a design challenge: making an overpass that is kid-friendly but pig-proof.

All of the playground equipment is made from New Zealand native hardwood. The swing set is held together with galvanised threaded rod.

The wood is rock hard. I dulled the chainsaw blade in 15 minutes. The swing  will easily last for decades.
