2 Kid-Friendly Things To Add To Your Landscape Design

Sonia Scott

If you are creating a landscape design that is specifically for children, then you are going to want to be sure that you incorporate items and design features that your children are going to love and enjoy. These items are going to encourage your children to get outside and play more, which is crucial to helping them stay healthy and active. This article is going to discuss 2 great things that you can add to your landscape design that are going to be kid-friendly and fun for your kids. 

In-Ground Trampoline

One super fun thing that most kids love doing when they are outside is jumping on the trampoline. However, a trampoline can be fairly dangerous. If this is something that you are worried abut, then you should consider having an in-ground location created for a trampoline in your backyard. This is going to be made by using a back hoe or some other large piece of equipment to dig a hole in the ground that is large and deep enough to fit your trampoline inside. You will want to make sure that the dimensions are perfect so that the trampoline fits securely inside while still being level with the rest of the ground. This is going to basically eliminate the risk of a child falling off the trampoline and getting hurt. And, if you are still nervous, you can place the trampoline netting around the top of the trampoline and the pad over the springs so that your children have no place where they are going to be able to fall off and hurt themselves. 

Garden Spot 

Another great landscape design feature to add is a garden spot. Your children will love helping you plant and care for a garden and will likely enjoy getting to eat the fruit and vegetables that they helped to grow. You can either do a regular garden in the ground that is fenced off or otherwise separated from the rest of your yard or you can do raised garden boxes that are each separated and are raised above the ground. In either case, your child is going to be given the opportunity to prepare the soil, plant the seeds and/or plants, water and otherwise care for them, and then pick the fruits and vegetables as they grow. You could even do a flower garden if this is something that your children are interested in doing.

About Me
New Gardener? Choose Your Flowers Carefully

As a child and teenager, I watched my mother garden, although I wasn't interested in it at the time. I later learned that I had missed out on learning the craft because before I planted my first garden, I thought it would be so easy! Once I finally had a yard of my own, I was eager to plant some beautiful flowers in the yard and do other landscaping work. Unfortunately, I learned a hard lesson and none of things I planted survived more than a few weeks, even though I watered them daily. I gave my mother a call and asked her what could have gone wrong, and I learned that plants have to be chosen carefully. Check out this blog to learn more landscaping plant tips.
