Everything I read was good on this set. I went with the earthtones
need a friend to help put together when assembling monkey bars and connecting top rail with a frame to monkry bars. monkey bar section will fall over if some one is not holding it. once everything is together you do not need anchors or anything in ground. the weight of set which you will know very well is heavy enough and foot print is large enough to hold itself in place. this is delivered by freight truck and crate actual wooden crate is long as a full size truck and about four feet wide and four feet high.
