'climbing-frame in garden' is the definition.
I can't tell whether this defines the answer.

'playing leapfrog female ignored' is the wordplay.
'playing' indicates an anagram.
'female' becomes 'f' (common abbreviation).
'ignored' suggests deleting specific letters.
'leapfrog' with 'f' removed is 'leaprog'.
'leaprog' anagrammed gives 'PERGOLA'.
