Creating a Garden the Whole Family Will Love

*Collaborative Post

When you’ve got kids, your garden changes a little. It goes from your space to relax, unwind and entertain, to your kids play paradise. Kids absolutely love being outdoors, playing in the mud or riding their bikes. In no time, you can find that all of your lovingly planted flowers have been trodden on, your garden has been overrun with outdoor toys, and the decking that once played home to family BBQs and summer parties is now covered in mud and houses only broken toys and a paddling pool.

While it’s great to let your kids explore safely outside, it doesn’t mean that you have to lose everything you once loved about your outside area. There’s no reason that you can’t all have the garden of your dreams. It’ll just take a little planning and effort. Here are some tips to set you up for creating a family garden that everyone will love!
