Your backyard is probably one of the central hubs of your home, especially if you have kids. Having a kid-friendly backyard is a great way to encourage you children to play and enjoy the outdoors from the comfort of your home home. Some homeowners have trouble balancing a well-crafted aesthetic with the practical needs of building a kid-friendly backyard. Here are some kid-friendly landscaping idea that can help you to merge beautiful designs with safe, accessible and practical landscaping from the specialists at Canada’s Gardenland.

Find a Good Deck or Patio

A deck or patio acts as a traditional space between your house and backyard, linking the two separate areas so you don’t have grass growing on your doorstep. This transitional spaces create more flow in and out of your house, making your home look and feel very cohesive. Place a table and chairs on your deck to entertain, have household meals, or just soak up the sun.

Build a Treehouse or Tire Swing

Make space for your children to play in your backyard with a treehouse or tire swing. A tire swing is fairly simple: all it requires is strong rope, an old tire, and a sturdy and secure tree branch. While a tree house may require more construction and planning, it’s a great way to give your children their very own play area within your outdoor space.

Keep Your Open Space

While there are a variety of kid-friendly landscaping ideas, sometimes the best way to make your backyard as inviting as possible for your children is to leave a lot of open space. Simple landscaping that involve large stretches of open grass are perfect for kids to run around and feel at home.
