a garden without poisonous plants, which are potentially dangerous to children. It occurred to me that this would look the same as in the picture of the plane lawn with possibly few herbs such as mint and sage. It does not sound, look interesting. This vision is a bit exaggerated , but apparently most of the plants (and the most visually stunning) has toxic properties. For example, the beautiful blooming hydrangeas or yews have toxic parts.
So what to do to have a children friendly garden which is not an empty lawn? The most important is planning. Thus you should think about limiting access to dangerous zones from the beginning. Well organised garden is a great place for children to learn and play. As I wrote, most plants have poisonous parts. It is rare that children eat needles and leaves. Therefore, the biggest danger comes from the plants with the poisonous fruits and those which should be definitely avoided like: Snowberry, privet and Viburnum opulus. The plants around the terrace and playground should not have spines or thorns. These plants, however, can be used to restrict access to the parts of the garden which are not dedicated to children. Spiny barberry or holly will discourage our folks to explore the protected parts of the garden.
Another important issue is that children are growing, similarly does the garden. Hence, any space which is arranged for kids should be easy to change in time.While arranging a space around the house we focus on safety. Therefore, people with small children areadvised to avoid the ponds or other forms of deep water. It is better to consider installation of a small water feature or shallow stream.
In time, when the children get older water pond can be added to the composition.It might be a good idea to have someplants which regenerate quickly. It is much harder to harm them. A wild clump of these easy-to-grow shrubs can also be a great place to hide for children. Older children will enjoy for certain the tree house.. If you want to encourage your child to play sports you should think how to provide some facilities like basketball hoop, To encourage children to play sports we can be place on-site paved basketball drills basketball throws, grassy field for ball games and badminton or for exmaple a petanque pitch or mini climbing wall.
A garden is a great place to play and learn about nature.
For many children planting its first carrot or chive is an unforgettable experience. Children can observe nature, see how it is changing, understand the world around us, enjoy the natural smells, tastes and sounds. Small animals such as snails, dragonflies and birds and hedgehogs living in or visiting the garden can make a lot of fun. Diversified garden is a chance to make children enjoy outdoors rather than spend all their time next to a computer.
