Delightful, Durable Decking
If you want to create a stylish social area in your garden but you’ve always been afraid that your children might spill something on it or ruin it, you no longer have to.
One good way to childproof your social spot is to use a hard wood decking which is combined with a waterproof plastic. Composites like those from Dura Composite Decking are totally waterproof, easy to clean and look great, so it’s certainly worth checking out. This will help to make your garden a swish space to socialise in which your children can’t damage.
Stylish Outdoor Lighting
One way you can really add a sparkle to your garden is to use various forms of lighting to help it come alive at night. A good way to do this is to use outdoor jar lights like the ones on this Pinterest board which you can place high up out of your kids’ reach.
Another way you can light up your garden is by lighting up some of the outside features of your hose like the window frames, using white fairy lights. If you place them high enough, your children won’t be able to touch them and they’ll really enhance your outdoor space.
You might think that all plants would be vulnerable to being damaged by your kids’ clumsy steps, but that’s not the case.
Lavatera is a wonderful plant which has delicate lilac flowers. The best thing about it is that it’s extremely hardly. You could kick a ball at it or stand on it by accident and it will stay strong. Another good choice could be the herb thyme. Thyme is a lush, deep leafy green plant which releases a delightful smell when its leaves are crushed. This makes it a perfect plant to have around your kids because their accidents could actually help bring out the most of the plant.
So there you have it, 3 stylish ways to enhance your family garden.
