If you have children, you’ll know that your garden is less of a relaxing haven and more of a play area for the little ones. It can also be a learning environment for kids, because it introduces them to various plants, colours, smells, bugs, birds and lots of other aspects of nature. But how do you know if your garden is actually safe, secure and suitable for your kids? Read on for some advice.
If your kids are playing outside, make sure none of your gardening tools are left out. They can be quite dangerous for curious little people so it’s important that you lock them away in your shed or garage after you’ve used them.
Children love trampolines and they are available in a variety of sizes, with or without a safety net. If you’re worried about them falling off and hurting themselves, you could install it so that it’s sunken in the ground rather than free standing. This will also stop it from blowing away or toppling over in blustery weather, and it’ll be less of an eye sore.
Artificial grass is a favourite for parents, because it means they won’t have mud dragged across the house after the kids have been playing out. It’s also very low maintenance and looks great all year round. If you suffer from hay fever, artificial grass might help alleviate the symptoms!
One way to stop your little ones wandering off to explore is to ensure your garden is appropriately fenced off, with a lockable gate. This will also put your mind at rest with regards to trespassers. There are lots of lovely fencing supplies on the market, meaning your garden will still look aesthetically pleasing.
