Rockaway Garden Swing
better than i thought it would be
Heavy, comfortable and great design. If I could change anything it would have been to have more time to clear coat it before it rained, it doesn't take much moisture to get the rust started. Otherwise it was perfect for our church yard.

On my second swing. First swing delivered, assembled and placed in the yard became terribly rusted within a few months . Toscano was very generous sending a replacement swing since the first was not to deteriorate so quickly. The second swing rusted faster, deeper and is in worse condition than the first. If Toscano offered to replace the second swing--it'd be refused. Not worth disassembling for the trash to only assemble a new swing that, certainly will rust in a matter of a few months. Want a swing that will last at least a few years.

Rust, rust rust
I saw in a previous review someone mentioning rust. I wish I had paid more attention to that. This swing starts to show rust signs from the start. Bolds and nuts as well as welded areas show rust within a week. I would hope someone from Design Toscano would give me a call.

Still lovin' it after all these years
I've had this swing for 3 years now. It is still beautiful, with very minimal signs of rust around bolts. I keep it near the house, under the soffit so it gets a bit of shelter from our occasional rain showers. I keep it inside through our snowy Idaho winters.
My only irritant is I wish it had a couple extra links in the chain so short people like me (5'4) could sit in it without our feet dangling mid-air. Otherwise, it's comfortable.
Overall, I highly recommend this swing.

This item is something you don't see in every yard or garden in this area.

My wife has wanted a garden swing for years - but, I never saw one that looked nice -always a cloth swing that would ultimately be at risk for mildew, etc. When I found this one, I bought it immediately. I put it together (no issues) and my wife loves it. It looks great and really complements my landscape. Great Product!!!

Love this swing! There are some unfinished sharp metal spots that need to be sand down, so be careful sitting on it. Because of the paint you really can't sand it down without taking the paint off too. Only draw back right now.

I am so pleased with the quality and appearance of this swing! It's sturdy, comfortable, easily seats two adults and looks even better than the picture. Assembly was quick and simple. Thanks for a great product.
