Where to find yard equipment

I love this and have no idea what it is called or where to buy one. Can anyone help?

Based on the other items in the background I would look for places that sell kids playground equipment and toy store sites for outdoor play items.

Oh! $690 plus tax and shipping. Maybe I donít like it that much. I wonder if there is a way to make one.

Haha. My tool belt is full of old treats. I used to use it as a treat bag and to hold dog equipment, bags, things like that. My goal is to end up with something to get my dogs off the ground and also provide a place to hide under. One of mine loves hiding under things and hoarding toys.

Lol!A small picnic table might work for you too.As long as it couldn't be used as a launch pad to get over the fence.

Ok there's irony here in that the site says "environmental" and it's made out of plastic.... oh, yeah.


Yes you could make one yourself. Here, the lumber yard gives you one free cut. Buy a 4 x 8 piece of plywood. Have them cut it to 4x4 pieces, then pay to have one of them cut into two triangles. Then you go to pipe - PVC, copper, or aluminum and the flange type fittings (I think that's what they're called) to bolt the pipes to the board (you may want to get a large pipe cutter to cut the pipe to size.) I think you can figure out how to put it together -- and customize it to the height you want.



And paint it the color you want.



and curse me for suggesting it because it will be heavier than what you would like.


...
But hey, you can manage.



You could also build it from rescued pallets. But you would have to do the cutting yourself...

Looks like a very nifty design. Perhaps you could get a couple strategically sized dog cots, do a little resizing if needed & modify the leg lengths with PVC pipe. I'm thinking there could multiple choices for materials.


Perhaps you could hire a handyman to make you something.
