The excellent reputation we’ve built through Eastern Jungle Gym is what put us on the map, and we carry that over to the entire Best In Backyard product line.

Mahopac, NY (PRWEB) May 02, 2014

Best in Backyards and its parent company Eastern Jungle Gym--a leading producer of cedar swing sets--were featured this week in three newspapers circulated in the Putnam-Northern Westchester, New York area.

The piece, titled "Brothers Build Business on 'Best' Reputation," appears in the Mahopac News, the Somers Record and the Yorktown News. It traces the history of Mark and Scott Honigsberg, both Mahopac High School graduates, and their two companies: Eastern Jungle Gym, which they started in their parents' shed in 1992, and Best in Backyards, the retail division they launched about three years ago.

"Over the last 22 years our high quality Eastern Jungle Gym brand swing sets have proven the test of time," Scott told the paper. "They are engineered and handcrafted to be the safest and strongest swing sets on the market today. The excellent reputation we’ve built through Eastern Jungle Gym is what put us on the map, and we carry that over to the entire Best In Backyard product line."

Today there are six Best in Backyards superstores in the area: Cheshire, CT; Danbury, CT; Elmsford, NY; Mahopac, NY; Monroe, CT; and New Windsor, NY. Each carries the Eastern Jungle Gym cedar swing sets that Mark and Scott first started designing decades ago, along with storage sheds, Springfree trampolines, pergolas, pavilions, retractable awnings, pool houses, in-ground basketball hoops and outdoor kitchens.

Eastern Jungle Gym is based out of a 20,000-square-foot warehouse in Carmel, NY, a short distance from each of the Best in Backyards stores. The company's location may have changed over the years, but the motto has remained the same: Creating childhood memories.
