Create a child friendly garden
Making your garden fun doesn’t mean is has to look like a play park. A multifunctional approach keeps everyone happy
The trickiest garden-design clients I’ve ever had? My own family. On moving to a new home, to my own wish list of overflowing herbaceous borders and bowling-green-smooth lawns were soon added the desirables “goalposts”, “treehouse” and “labrador”. We finally had the chance to make the family garden we had dreamt of — the challenge was to make it look good without casting household democracy out of the window.
