The Family Garden
With the summer holidays around the corner you may want to start thinking about ways in which you can keep the kids amused in the sunlight.With the arrival of the sun, many of us will want to spend as much time as is possible enjoying the sun, so what better starting point then with your garden?
The garden is a good place for your young ones to invest time through the summertime, regardless how young they might be, as it is affordable and supplies them with a secure setting in which to enjoy the fresh air. Whether your garden area is big or small, there is certainly sufficient opportunity for your garden to be changed into a child-friendly and enjoyable area. So, if your garden happens to be in need of some work then why don’t you seize the chance to talk to your child about what they would envision for their garden. You may even think about adding some luxuries of your own, including stylish rattan furniture.
So, if you are eager to start creating a great outside living area which can be enjoyed by your entire family then read on to learn of some useful tips and hints.
1)Choose a theme. Is your child thinking about growing their own veggie plot to grow toppings for their pizza? Or would they love to create their very own secret hideout of their own? Before you can plan the style and layout of your new garden you should discuss with your child what they would enjoy seeing in the garden.
2)Make it bright! Begin selecting and planting blossoms in an array of vivid colours. In addition to this, there are many child-friendly flower types which are safe and appealing to young children. To achieve an Alice in Wonderland dream-like quality, you could even combine a mixture of flower sizes. For this particular theme, toadstool chairs would also work well. Therefore, whilst your children enjoy their novelty seating why don’t you relax on some comfy rattan garden furniture?
3)Remember to include areas of shade. Your family may want to make the most of the beautiful weather this summer, but it is also important to incorporate shaded areas into your garden design.
4)Keep them interested. A garden should be an area of fun, so try to relax and let your children make their own mistakes and wreck some havoc of their own in your garden. For especially young children, simply being allowed to play with some soil can provide plenty enough entertainment. However, for slightly older children you may want to provide them with their very own colorful garden ‘tools’ and allow them to take control of their own flower bed or vegetable patch.
5)Provide comfortable seating. Colorful and waterproofed beanbags would be perfect for your youngsters. However, rattan garden furniture or something similar could provide the entire family with comfortable seating.
