4 Ways To Transform Your Backyard Into Ultimate Kid-Friendly Space

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 27 December , 2017

If you have children, the chances are better than average that you already spend a great deal of time in your backyard. While traditional swing sets and monkey bars have long been backyard family staples, just a bit of imagination can transform your backyard playground into something truly special.

In this issue, we’ll share a few tips for creating a kid-friendly area in your backyard.

  1. Splash Pads
    Kids and water seem to go together like peanut butter and jelly. If you don’t want to go to the trouble of installing a pool – or even if you already have one – a splash pad can be a great addition.

In a nutshell, splash pads are non-slip areas that have various nozzles and other features that can treat your children to hours of non-stop fun.

  1. Playhouses
    Whether you call them treehouses or playhouses, they’re something that your children should be able to enjoy long after being the toddler age. The key is to go with a model that is big enough for your children to enjoy but no so big that it takes up virtually all of the backyard.

These days, playhouses came in so many forms and designs. You can go with very basic and small houses to models that are truly sprawling and intricately designed.

  1. Ziplines
    While safety is the obvious overriding concern here, the popularity of ziplines has grown immeasurably. There are guides available that will teach you how to build a zipline yourself, consulting with a professional is definitely a good idea.

The keys are to make sure the zipline stays at a reasonable speed and above ground from start to finish, and that riders wear helmets.

  1. Rock Climbing Walls
    If your children are especially active, a climbing wall can be a great addition. A cool feature of climbing walls is that you can add a climbing wall to your backyard or in an existing playroom.

Juniper Landscape Company was on-time,... Read More

I was always out there cleaning up the leaf litter or be fined by the HOA. I hired Juniper Landscape Company. They came out and actually listened to what I wanted. They... Read More

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
