How Do I Make My Yard Child Friendly in Southold, NY? Grass & Hardscape Outdoor Kids Play Area

Having the perfect landscape is a goal many homeowners desire, but having kids may not let you feel like you can indulge in a classy landscape. Well, we at Mickey’s LawnScapes would like to point out some family friendly aspects to incorporate into your landscape that still looks remarkable but will give the kids plenty of fun time.

Kid-Friendly Backyard Design Ideas

1) Horseshoe Lawn Game: Transforming your backyard into a tiered entertaining space. Complete the space with one, multiple, or even all of the following:
– Fire Pit
– Lounging Cabanas
– Game Lawn
– Grilling Area
– Mobile
– Indoor-Outdoor Couch
2) Seesaws: Consider putting on one end of the yard set up a relaxing center under a curtained pergola with outside dining option or a quiet place to read and keep an eye across the yard.
On one end of the backyard, parents can relax on the dining deck. On the other end, kids can play for hours on a custom handmade seesaw.
3) Trampoline: Not only perfect for sky-high jumping but a padded and pillowed trampoline but it is also perfect for lounging and laughing with friends or the family.
4) Colorful Lounge: Taking the party outside is ideal when there is a deck that can accommodate the whole clan. Complete the look with custom built-in benches and wooden stools to provide seating; string some outdoor lights add some entertainment while allowing beautiful turf in the surrounding areas for the kids to enjoy the outside activities.
5) Outdoor Kids Play Area: Feature a stepping stones that are perfectly designed for a game of Hopscotch and even a pint-sized chalk board as well as other backyard games to entertain the kids for hours of fun.
6) Tumbling Mat: While the parents can sit back on the nearby entertainment deck, the kids can be tumbling and releasing the energy under the careful watch. Surround the tumble mat with lush grass and even line the mat with beautiful shrubs and flowers.
7) Dog Yard Games: If you have a playful pup, think of designated area that is devoted to the dog and kids area with games and all the little things that are congenial for them.
8) Picnicking and Croquet: A grassy area with a little fire pit or built-in grill will give you the opportunity for picnics and games of croquet, volleyball, bad mitten or any of your other favorites games.
9) Mini Golf: Even 2 or 3 holes can a whole lot of fun for the mini gulf with the kids and it would give you the opportunity to work on your putt.
10) Themed Sandbox: Put in your own custom themed sandbox like a rowboat. An old wooden rowboat can not only bring them hour of entertainment with sand, but a rowboat for example can let their imagination soar.
11) Playhouse: Go a step further than the themed sandbox and build a playhouse in the midst of willow trees or between other trees or bushes that are partial to you.
12) Hammock: Don’t forget the adult sized hammock to lounge and enjoy the beautiful turf and watch the kids play for you.
13) Basketball Court: A half sized court and the other soft grass is a perfect balance between the basketball enthusiast and your beautiful landscape.
