Family Garden Designs

Child friendly gardens with play areas and open spaces

When creating a family garden, there are two main points to take into consideration.
Firstly, it needs to be a safe environment where children can play without any undue hazards. Secondly, it should be fun!

If you have young children, it’s important to create a secure environment, where they can run around without fear they’ll make a bolt for the nearest road. This can be achieved by artificial means such as closeboard fencing and gates. Alternatively, dense hedging can be used to give security and privacy.

Innovative play areas can be created to house climbing frames and facilitate other children’s activities. A cushioned surface can be made using play bark or other soft materials.

And let’s not forget the grown-ups. A patio where parents can relax and socialise is just as important. Textured sandstone paving can be used to give a stylish, clean look to any patio.

If you haven’t the room to create two separate areas, decking could be the solution. A decked area provides a practical surface on which children can play. It’s also looks great adorned with table, chairs, parasol, and perhaps a bottle of wine and two glasses?

A family garden is about versatility and fun. An outdoor space everyone in the home can enjoy.
