If you are looking for a natural product that can encourage your children to engage in physical activity, why not consider installing a knotted spider’s web climbing frame in your garden? This can be a great low cost solution in a garden where space is at a premium and, with a little planning, should be within the capabilities of a confident DIY-er. However, if you are are nervous about creating the feature yourself, there are a few companies out there that may be able to help you out. Stonk Knots are a Somerset based company that create furniture and household items from rope.
Much children’s garden play equipment is produced in garish, primary coloured plastics that stand out like a sore thumb. The natural appearance and colour of the knotted rope are ideal when looking for construction materials that blend into the garden environment. In my book, anything that blends with the environment is a winner and a spider’s web climbing frame can be installed just about anywhere, provided that the structure that you attach your ropes to is safe, strong and can take the weight of a child.
