I'm guessing you have a wooden swing. Depends if you want to bring it
in. Some do, but a lot of people who have better things to do with their
time leave it hanging but wrap it in plastic sheeting from the hardware
store to keep the moisture from the winter rain and snow off it. It's
moisture -- not temperature -- that leads wood to a premature death,
If there are seat cushions on the swing, bring those in, tho. Nobody's
*that* lazy ;)
Funny, my wife just commented on this today. She says she'd had a swing
when growing up that the never did anything with in the winter. Her comment
was spurred by seeing where several people in the neighborhood had pulled
their swings up to the porch ceiling to help keep them out of the elements.
We on the other hand have a rope swing from Hatteras Hammocks that is out on
a swing frame in the back yard. We keep it covered when not in use and put
away in the winter.
