Michael and the staff at the Hitching Post continue to be advocates for safety and quality in the outdoor structures that are built and installed in Florida. We work with engineers and customers every day to ensure that whatever addition to your home or backyard you are considering, it is of the highest quality and will last for years to come.

We have been here since 1979 because we are experts at what we do and because we provide customers from Orlando to Boca Raton with patio and backyard shade structures and other outdoor equipment and products that last for years, are beautiful, and safe.




When Michael first opened the doors on the Hitching Post in 1979, there was a period when the counties didn’t know how to regulate the building and permitting process of such specialized outdoor structures. After a decade of meetings between industry experts like Michael and others, a separate building code and permitting process was put into place.

Those initial regulations and codes have since been modified and have become more specialized depending on the type of outdoor structure that is being built and installed.

Michael has been working with local officials and engineers in Florida for years. Those combined efforts have resulted in stricter building codes and standards for our products. They are standards that we meet or exceed in each of our outdoor specialty items. We are proud to only offer structures that are expertly crafted, safe and meet Miami-Dade wind load ratings (up to 170 MPH).

Dear Mike, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for the excellent job on the installation of my Pergola. Your promise to get the job done before Christmas was right on target. in this day and age its most gratifying to see an organization like the Hitching Post live up to all the expectations of the consumer. I have had numerous compliments on the good looks and quality of construction of this unit. Working with the entire staff at the Hitching post was a pleasant experience. Again thanks. Peter

There is only one place in South Florida to go to for playground equipment, just like you find in your local park: Hitching Post Backyard Specialties on Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach. They are more than just swing sets and slides, Hitching Post has gazebos galore, perfect pergolas, sheds, kennels, hammocks and lawn furniture, and more. Family owned since 1979, and it shows in how they treat customers… like family.

WOW! Pricing, customer service, product and overall experience with Hitching Post is a 10/10. Alyssa and Mike were Great and it was a pleasure to do business with them and they will be highly recommended to anyone I know who is in the market for a Swing or Play Set. My kids love their playground and it was all because of Hitching Post Backyard Specialties. Thank you very much! You made this purchase painless and enjoyable and you have a lifetime customer if ever I need another Swingset.
