Best In Backyards

Best in Backyards, a division of Eastern Jungle Gyms, is the premier one-stop shop for top-of-the-line outdoor products, including cedar swing sets, storage sheds, Springfree trampolines, outdoor kitchens, pergolas, pavilions, fire pits, awnings, rubber mulch, Goalsetter basketball systems, two-story buildings and two-car garages. These high-quality backyard products are delivered and installed by our team of trained professionals.

We have six of the largest indoor and outdoor showrooms in the tri-state area, with unbelievable displays showing all of our products so you can try before you buy. Our knowledgeable staff is ready to help build a dream backyard for you and the kids. We are located at the following addresses: 119 Route 6 in Mahopac, NY; 50 Executive Boulevard in Elmsford, NY; 432 Temple Hill Road in New Windsor, NY; 66 Sugar Hollow Road in Danbury, CT; 1317 South Main Street in Cheshire, CT; and 391 Main Street in Monroe, CT.

Our wooden swing sets are manufactured by our parent company, Eastern Jungle Gym, in Carmel, NY. They range from the Classic model, which offers two sling swings and a gym-ring/trapeze combo, to the Imagination, with three clubhouses, a tree house with a front porch, three slides, monkey bars, a rock-climbing wall and much more. All of the swing sets are modular, so customers may add accessories at any time, and take them when they move. 

If you are thinking about purchasing a swing set, one thing to keep in mind is the importance of surfacing. We sell rubber mulch that cushions the impact during falls. It is made from 100-percent recycled scrap tires, and it is available in terracotta red, forest green, royal brown, cocoa brown and basic black.

Best in Backyards sells, delivers and installs Springfree trampolines, the world's safest trampolines. Unlike traditional trampolines, this equipment uses engineered glass rods instead of springs to give a softer bounce; the frame is hidden, not exposed, so jumpers will not make contact; and there is a SoftEdge instead of pads, which are 30-times less shock absorbent. Our selection includes four shapes and sizes, along with accessories.

There are two options when it comes to the Goalsetter basketball systems we offer: in-ground or wall-mounted. Both are equipped with exclusive 3/8-inch competition, fully-tempered glass backboards, which can be adjusted for a range of heights. The ground anchor hinge system relies on a square, 42-inch long structural steel anchor that allows for superior performance and durability. And these products are also easy to transport -- just remove the equipment from the existing anchor and install a new anchor at a new home. 

Our storage shed selection is impressive. We have A-frame sheds, Dutch barn sheds, Quaker style sheds, Cape style sheds, garden style sheds and barn style sheds. Unlike the competitors' products, these structures come complete with a floor, and the customers have plenty of options in terms of size, door style, siding and trim color, windows, shutters, shingles, and cupolas. Flower boxes and ramps are also available to add aesthetics and extra convenience to your storage shed.

Other buildings available at Best in Backyards include pool houses, two-car garages, two-story garages, two-story Dutch barns or A-frame buildings, as well as Victorian, Colonial and log-sided playhouses for the children.

If you are looking to add a bit of elegance to your property, Best in Backyards is the place to go. Our outdoor room options include gazebos, pavilions and pergolas, as well as awnings. Have your pick of a wooden or vinyl gazebo--both come with sturdy, heavy-duty floors--open or screened-in. You could go with a 12-foot octagon gazebo that features a cupola, crown molding and electrical connections; a 14x20 foot oval gazebo with a pagoda roof, mahogany stain and a custom weather vane; a 20-by-40 foot country style gazebo with a ramp; or any number of other options. 

Love the look of a pavilion? Ours are constructed with pine, cedar, hemlock or vinyl, and they look gorgeous next to a deck, pool or patio. Whether you are considering the Alpine, Hampton or Traditional style, the customization possibilities are endless. Think posts, columns, post skirts, two dozen roofing options and much more.

Pergolas come in a variety of shapes and sizes, too. There's the Arcadian, the Artisan, the Hearthside, the Heartland and the Traditional. They, too, are available in pine, cedar, hemlock or vinyl, and may be anchored to concrete pad and wood decks. Vinyl pergolas offer everything from post trim to decorative end caps to braces to post skirts. Wooden pergolas boast just as much beauty, with notched intersections, elegant arches, double-ply headers and decorative train. Privacy walls and lattice roofs are also available for some styles.

Awnings are the fourth outdoor room product we sell at Best in Backyards. Manufactured by Solair, these retractable awnings expand the living space while using Sunbrella fabric, the top-of-the-line, most trusted outdoor material on the market. The fabric is extremely durable and fade resistant, plus it blocks up to 98-percent of UV rays (the Skin Cancer Foundation has given Sunbrella awning fabrics its "Seal of Recommendation."). Awnings are the perfect addition to a pleasant--but hot--deck or patio, and ours come in three versions: the PS1000 for small outdoor spaces, the PS2000 for medium and the PS5000 for large. Each comes with a remote, and wind sensors are available in case you leave home on a breezy day and accidentally forget to retract the awning.

For those who love cooking but feel the outdoor barbecue just doesn't cut it, Best in Backyards has the perfect solution--an outdoor kitchen. With porcelain tile counters, Bull stainless steel grills, stainless steel refrigerators, bars with built-in fire pits and more, these outdoor kitchen islands create the perfect place for gatherings. They are decorated in beautiful stone and stucco finishes, and some come with under-bar lighting.

Outdoor fire pits and fire rings are the perfect compliment to many of the other products we sell. Either wood-burning or natural gas, these items are customized to the customer's wishes, from in-ground stone to stucco to granite. Not only are fire pits and fire rings beautiful, they make it convenient and easy to build a fire you can enjoy with family and friends.

With more than 20 years' experience, we have worked with thousands of satisfied customers. We offer financing options and our experts work with you to make sure you are achieving the backyard look you have envisioned.
