Creating a Kid-Friendly Garden for your Children

In a world filled with iPhones and games consoles, it’s becoming more important than ever to encourage our nation’s kids to get outside and play. If you’re lucky enough to have a large garden, this can be a great way to grow a love for being outdoors from a young age.

However, some gardens are better than others at creating a safe and fun place for children to play and, with just a few added touches, you can turn your dull backyard into a haven for your kids. Here are just a few ideas to get you started on creating your child-friendly garden.

Add a wild touch

Allowing a corner of your garden to grow into a more wild and untamed space can be a dream for a child’s imagination. Consider planting tall grasses and low-hanging trees to create a jungle-like atmosphere where children can spend hours playing.

Aside from that, a slightly less manicured space can help to attract a host of insects and animals to your garden which can, in turn, teach your young ones about the importance of British wildlife.

Flat space for games

Simple yet effective, a grassy space is the perfect spot for kids to play games with friends. Whether it’s setting up goal posts for a game of football or simply a garden big enough for a game of tag, having an open space is essential to a kid-friendly garden.

If you’re worried that laying turf may ruin your garden’s aesthetic, consider adding some flower borders to add a splash of floral colour to the space. Make sure to invest in plants and flowers that are robust enough to take a ball or foot trampling over them, however.

Bespoke playhouses

After a day of running around and playing in your fantastic kid-friendly garden, it can be nice to create a space for children to both rest in the shade whilst encouraging a more imaginative kind of play.

A great way of doing this is by having a playhouse tucked away in your garden. Here at Kirton Sectional Buildings Ltd, we have a range of great looking playhouses for your little ones to chill out in after a long day’s play.

Aside from that, our extensive range of bespoke garden structures, from potting sheds to greenhouses, can completely transform your outdoor space to fit your exact specifications.
