How Can I Make My Yard Kid Friendly in Aquebogue, NY? Vegetable Garden & More

You can give children many hours of enjoyment by providing an inspiring outdoor play area since the play is at the heart of childhood. Though many parents would also like to have a beautifully designed landscape, they may still want to incorporate elements for the kids. Whether you want to avoid having a playset that takes up precious yard space, or you don’t want to look at toys year-round from the interior of your home, you can still have experts provide a beautifully designed landscape that is still kid friendly. Today, we at Mickey’s Lawnscapes would like to offer some ideas to help your kids play while enjoying a gorgeous landscape.

How Can I Make My Backyard Fun for Kids?

1) Water Feature. You can offer children a safe place in which to interact with water implementing a stainless steel C-channel that pours water into an underground water basin.
2) Camouflaged Sandbox. Sand stretches the imagination and provides a potentially soothing sensory experience. Additionally, kids get up close and personal with plants and the butterflies and birds they attract by nestling a sandbox within a planting bed not only will help integrate it into the garden.
3) Fallen Logs. When we spot a dying or fallen tree, we typically get out the axe and chainsaw and chop it up for either firewood, mulch, or garbage pickup. You can try to save at least part of it for wildlife if a tree in your backyard is dying and must be removed. In addition to making a wonderful wildlife home, a length of fallen trunk on the ground can create a play space and can be attractive in a naturalistic garden.
4) Take Advantage of the Vertical Space. For a less visually obtrusive in a small garden, consider chalkboards, climbing walls and buckets of toys can be hung from garden walls and fence.
5) Vegetable/ Fruit Garden. During the summer months, a bean tepee makes a wonderful hiding place for young children. For the most vigorous pole beans or other vines, extra-long bamboo poles would make for an even more dramatic tepee and offer support.
6) Feature Designs with Toys. An attractive alternative to plastic ones is wooden tree swings, teeter-totters and other toys.
7) Storage for Kid Toys. Kids tend to accumulate stuff and you want an attractive spot for these outdoor activity props. Bench storage is a great alternative to leaving toys in the yard.
8) Older Kid Plan. Gardens can offer teens a fun place in which to relax with friends as it can challenging to lure older children and teens outdoors. A fire pit for roasting marshmallows and a spot for watching movies, try adding cool seating.
9) Efficiently Use the Space. A stylish garden packs a slide, rope climber and sandbox into a tiny, steep city lot with its clever level changes and integrated design.
