Some lawn designs are more family friendly than others. Lawns offer a perfect surface for children and families to play, offering durable style that looks good year round.
Some lawn designs to consider incorporating into family-friendly yards include:
- Play Areas – Strong designs are important for both ornamental and child-friendly yard designs. Children’s play areas need tough grasses and plants, those that are extremely resilient to toys and children’s high-activity levels. Evergreen shrubs that are very hardy are great to plant along fences or sandpits, helping brace children from hard surfaces. The best types of grasses for durability include smooth meadow grasses and rye grasses, which allow for constant wear.
- Patterns – Unusual designs in grasses, such as walking trails help encourage children to exercise and spend more time in the yard. Considering adding garden paths that lead to sitting or play areas. Fun patterns help create interesting spaces and irregular shapes that can give children hours of pleasure and fun.
- Dining Areas – Outdoor rooms are the latest trend for yards, offering an outdoor eating area for families. Dining outdoors is an excellent way to take advantage of the warm summer months. Situating furniture on patio spaces is better than placing it directly on grass, giving it more durability and stability.
- Functional – Combining fun and functionality is ideal for family yards. Consider adding ornamental grasses, or even smooth rubber mulch for children to ride bikes, tricycles and play cars. These are also available in a variety of colors, making it fun for children to play outdoors and keeping them away from mind-numbing indoor video games when the sun is shining and the warm outdoor air beckons.
Other fun ideas include adding an outdoor bar, outdoor pizza oven and even play areas that include swings, slides and playhouses. Functional outdoors spaces do not need to cost a fortune and can easily be created on a budget.
