MILLERSBURG — Hershberger Lawn Structures has provided family fun for children through the production of quality swing sets and outdoor play sets for over two decades.
David Hershberger, sales manager at Hershberger Lawn Structures, has grown up in the family business. He realizes how fortunate he is to make a living at providing fun and lasting memories for families.
"When you purchase one of our play sets, you are investing not only in your children, but also in your grandchildren," Hershberger said. "Our mission is to promote play, family relationships and lifetime memories. That’s what we’re about."
Research shows that outdoor play gives children many valuable benefits, including physical, intellectual and social development. Often when a child is struggling with obesity, low energy, depression or other health issues, lack of outdoor play is a likely culprit.
Hershberger Lawn Structures manufactures the Play Mor swing sets at their shop located west of Millersburg on State Route 39. "Everything is made right here," Hershberger said. "We purchase our plastic parts, but the scoop wave slide is our mold and our design, which we sell to other manufacturers, so you might see it on other people’s swing sets."
"We consider ourselves residential, but we do sell play sets to day care facilities and churches where you don’t have to meet state codes," he added. "But for the most part, it’s residential product.
"The details are important to us," Hershberger said. "All of our lumber is milled and all the edges are rounded to keep our product free from sharp corners. Memories made with your children are priceless. Interacting with your children on one of our swing sets is bound to create precious, fun-filled memories."
The company developed a newer product over the last few years. "From 1992 to 2016, we built wood play sets, and in 2016, we introduced our poly play sets," Hershberger said. The poly, which is wood coated in a poly finish, makes for a low-maintenance play set.
Play Mor swing sets range in price from around $1,500 to over $20,000 and offer setup and delivery as an add-on.
"We have a small set that consists of a tower, a couple of swings, a slide and a ladder, all the way up to four or five towers with seven, eight slides, 20 swings and bridges and gangplanks, and all the kinds of fun items you can imagine," Hershberger said. "There are a lot of other play shapes, such as boats, trains and castles as well.
"The sets come pre-designed or you can customize them to fit any yard," he continued. "We inventory everything here, so everything is in stock. We specialize in fast turnaround times. We ship our product nationwide but we enjoy serving our local community."
Choose a Play Mor swing set as a wonderful playmate for your children and plant smiles in your backyard for years to come.
