Family-Friendly Garden Styles
Family-friendly garden styles often go hand in hand with contemporary garden designs. Clean lines and clearly defined zones for different uses are paramount. Include a large entertaining area and an outdoor kitchen for alfresco dining and lighting so you can enjoy the garden well into the evening. Providing a place for the kids to play in a safe environment with a soft floor is an essential along with overhead cover for sunny days. Remember safety when planting, so avoid prickly shrubs or poisonous berries. If you have the room, add a vegetable plot because it’s fun and educational to involve the kids in growing their food from an early age. Finally, ensure your garden is private and safe with a secure fence, gate and sensor lighting. The in-house design team at Acacia Gardens has created a list of ten family-friendly garden features you may wish to include.
