We had to buy the ground sleeve separately to concrete it in properly, but it all turned out good. I'm happy with the looks of the basketball goal and it's stability. We use it on a double carport slab and it's big enough for some good playing time. I had read that I should get a larger unit because of the size of the playing field but opted to go with this size anyways because of the good deal. It suits our family well and doesn't look unattractive to the landscape. The husband put it together so I don't have any comment there but I did have difficulty getting him to follow the directions about placement of the ground sleeve and of course he didn't put the height sticker in its right place because he didn't READ THE DIRECTIONS.
