Summer is just around the corner and the sun is shining, making it the best time to invest in creating the best garden for your children with Weston Sawmill.
There are growing links to active children being more academically successful, so getting them to spend more time outdoors in your garden has multiple benefits.
Here we are going to look at ways you can achieve a child-friendly garden –
Give the Kids Their Own Plot –
Encouraging your kids to grow their own plants is a great way for them to learn more about nature and build their self-esteem. From planting seeds, to regularly tending to seedlings and then seeing them finally blossom will give your children a sense of achievement and satisfaction.
Another option is to let them grow their own fruit and vegetables which in turn could encourage them to eat what they’ve grown themselves.
Create an Adults Area –
Having a garden that the whole family can use means you will be able to relax while your kids play. Decking from Weston Sawmill is the best way to achieve this, giving you an elevated garden area where you can keep an eye on them and have drinks and meals outdoors in the summer.
Kids Play Area –
If you have plants or shrubs you’d like to protect, then creating a bespoke play area is a smart move. This is the perfect space to install swings or slides they can enjoy for hours in the sunshine. Weston Sawmill can provide all the basic wood components plus swing seats, hangers and corners so you can build your own play area to your specifications.
Our final bit of advice would be to check your garden for any toxic plants that could be harmful to your children plus your dog (if you have one). This is where you will need to educate your children about the dangers of poisonous plants and maybe block access to them as a precaution.
