I can smell summer! The pink leaves are disappearing from the trees, and the weather is getting warmer.
I have started dreaming of how I would love our garden to look like this summer. Summer time usually means garden makeover time. The neighbours and I usually abandon the gardens during the winter season, and for most of spring because it is freezing and we can’t be bothered to do anything garden related. I am sure this is the same in most homes.
However, all hands are on deck when it comes to garden improvements in the summer. Everyone is out getting the lawn cut, planting, tanning, playing and just doing outdoor stuff, which is great for the soul.
I have a few ideas for our garden this summer. The kids would be off school in a few weeks, and I would love the garden to be more child friendly in time for the summer holidays. They enjoy playing outdoors like most children, so I would want to make the garden as child friendly as possible, so we can play safely. At the moment, our garden surface is all grass, so that might need changing or improving. I know there are different types of garden surfaces available but I will let the professionals decide on the best line of action to take.
The 2 pictures below best describe my dream summer garden. I need the garden to be pretty and functional to suit my family’s needs.
This garden here is garden goals. I love the pink flowers a lot. It definitely looks cared for and it is super pretty.
The slide caught my eye. This would make my 2 kiddies very happy, and hopefully keep them busy for a good amount of time.
I would want my ideal garden to have a child friendly surface, pretty flowers like the pink beauty in the picture above, a shade with some chairs and some space for child fun activities. We have quite a large shed in the garden already, but I am hoping the space we have left can still do the work.
Do you have any summer garden plans? How do you keep the kids entertained in the garden? Please share your thoughts and tips in the comments section. Thanks for stopping by.
