Landscaping with Children in Mind

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Wednesday, 18 November , 2015

Landscaping is meant to be enjoyed by individuals and families. The type of features you choose to include in your landscape, from tranquil water features to open spaces for playing, will be heavily influenced by how you choose to use your outdoor space. When you have children, a suitable landscape can offer them a safe and inviting space to play and learn.

One way to make your landscape more child-friendly is to include natural components. For example, if you have a nice tree in your yard, consider planting green beans on poles attached to tree branches to form a tee-pee. As the green beans grow up the legs, children can sit inside and have natural play area, and the best part is that you and your kids can enjoy eating the produce.

If you want other ways to enjoy naturally grown food in your own yard, consider adding an edible garden. Gardening with children is also a great way to involve your children in landscaping as well as teach them responsibility. They can be tasked with planting and caring for plants while gaining the added benefit of watching the different vegetables grow.

Another great addition is a flower garden. Not only can you and your children enjoy the look and great fragrance of the plants, but you can also plant specific varieties that attract butterflies and hummingbirds. Other features like rocks and open spaces can give your child options for spontaneous play. Water features are also a great option that has multiple benefits. Consider adding a koi pond, which can teach children the responsibility of caring for other living things. The sound of the running water will also benefit you as a place that invites relaxation.

When you plan your landscape, keep your children in mind and think of additions that they can play and help with. Once it is complete, you can sit back and enjoy your family time together.

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
