While Essex weather can be unpredictable, there are plenty of mild days. This means you have a lot of time to build a garden.
Gardens work to your advantage since they make your home attractive and help increase its market value. But they should not be for display alone. Make them awesome for your kids too with these tips:
1. Build an Organic Garden
Although creating an organic garden is difficult, it’s ideal for your little ones. One, you don’t have to deal with harmful chemicals. Second, you get to be creative. For example, you can teach your child how to make compost from leaves, scraps of food, and paper. Lastly, you can feed your family with healthier food.
2. Lock the Garden Shed
Shears, wheelbarrows, rakes, and other garden tools are necessary. But they’re not meant for kids’ play. Tools that are taller than your kids should be used by only you alone, while smaller ones must be handled by your kids with supervision.
3. Give Them Enough Room to Explore
Supervise your children, but don’t micromanage. Let your garden be their own wilderness and jungle! Let them touch frogs and snails, observe flower and tree growth through the seasons, or tell various species of butterflies.
4. Create a Section Especially for the Children
Build a swing, fill a sand pit, and place them in a part of your garden. Call it their playground. Then separate this area from the restricted sections of your garden with beautiful hedges.
5. Call for Help
Having trouble designing your garden? Then call landscape gardeners Essex. They can also give you free tips on how to maintain your garden and make it child-friendly.
Gardening is a great time to bond with your children and teach them life skills like patience, determination, creativity, curiosity and problem-solving. Always get them involved.
