As a parent you will have a clear idea on how to make your garden safe and secure for your child. Here are some more ideas on how to doubly ensure their safety and their fun in the garden.
Create shade in your garden especially for areas where your child will spend a lot of time a sand pit. For temporary shade a large parasol will fit the bill. For permanent shade consider a shade sail. A good one should block up to 90% of the sun’s UV rays and not fade or retain mould.
Hide the clutter
How do you store garden toys your child will play with in the garden? If you do not have space in your garden for a shed consider using a large basic water butt or compost bin to store them in or invest in a slimline garden store or storage chest. Using green plastic garden table or barbeque covers will hide them from view and also keep them dry.
If you are going to have your garden professionally designed ask for plenty of storage space to be included.
Use your commonsense about what to plant in the garden. Avoid planting prickly and thorny plants and those with accessible berries. The label on new plants should specify toxicity or ask for advice at your garden centre.
