I had been looking for months for a 3-person garden swing after my previous one started falling apart and I couldn't find replacement cushions or a cover. All the new ones I saw looked too flimsy, had horrible reviews, or were too expensive. (There were plenty of nice 2-person swings but hardly any 3-person ones.) This one looked good in the pictures, reviews were good, and I could see I could buy replacement cushions and top (which I'll do right now and then save them in the basement). I hired the neighbor kid to put it together, took him about an hour. It's lovely. Works just as expected. The swing is low to the ground which is just what I want since I'm short. We tried opening it to a bed and that'd work pretty cool, too! The top can be easily tilted to block out morning or late afternoon sun, there are two black dials on either side that lock into diff. positions by turning them. The seat cushions attach to the top of the back frame with a sturdy velcro loop in back, one per cushion in the center top, but unlike my previous swing, there is no velcro fastener at the bottom back of the seat (where it folds), so the cushions have a tendency to slide out a bit. I think putting a few pieces of rubber backing (like you'd put under a slippery area ru)g will work. The pictures also don't show what it looks like without the cushion; there's a single piece of very sturdy canvas wrapped around the bottom and back, dark brown color, very taut so there's some bounce in it when you sit. All in all I'm extremely pleased with the affordable cost of this swing. I also liked Walmart's "pick up" service (I'm not a Walmarts shopper otherwise), so I didn't have to pay for shipping --- which would've almost doubled the cost -- but just drive up and have one of their associated load it into my car in a long cardboard box. (The box was very heavy.) That worked out great.
