Top tips to get your garden in ship shape

Kevin Dennis enjoys designing child-friendly gardens as he believes that when children grow up with a nice garden, it can be the beginning of a love for outdoor space and gardening for future generations. “When I design a garden for young families, I know the children will grow up always remembering that the garden was a large part of their home life,” he said. The more there is for children to do in the garden, the more the outdoors will appeal to them. Special sunken trampolines are easier on the eye and will keep them active, and playhouses feed the imaginations. Special raised beds can be used to encourage an interest in growing their own plants, and wildlife can be encouraged with birdhouses and bug hotels.
