Facebook: Twitter: Instagram: Designing a garden for kids who want to play and adults who want to relax can be a tricky balance. After careful consideration, it is entirely possible to create a garden that can satisfy the needs of both active children and tired parents. The example of this neglected, unloved and uninspired garden in this suburban suburb illustrates how the use of areas enables you to meet the needs of children and parents. In a small garden, it is easy to fill as much as possible. We are sure they definitely want enough lawn area for children to play. This will become the children’s area, which will change over time and is not too precious when used by screaming children’s army, Wendy’s house, battlefield or temporary football venue. The grown-up area is designed as an elevated terrace area, which will be partially obscured by the planters and the elevated borders on both sides. If parents need to reach the children’s area quickly and help provide the flow of people around the garden, well-planned passages. These beds and borders also help to break up adjacent views, thus providing privacy. They also need to store and store bicycles. By using a direct path to the children’s lawn, it can move between areas and help connect the garden together. However, enclosing these areas in boundaries with different heights can bring a sense of privacy when in each area. The raised beds surrounding the children’s area are hybridized with super tough herbaceous perennials, grasses and shrubs. In addition, they also woven some beautiful and delicate specimens through them. Therefore, it not only has the feeling of bedding plants and evergreen shrubs, but also has a more refined feeling. These boundaries are designed to encourage visitors to further study these plants, ask questions and concentrate on the drift of planting instead of focusing on smaller gardens. .

    I watch all your videos and love your designs , I am a novice to gardening and I love learning about the thought process that goes behind this . Can you advise where you get your plants , also is it advisable to buy smaller shoots and plant them or get them when they are a little mature

    Where do you outsource your plants from? I buy from crocus but they always arrive so small, which means its not until a year or even two that they are half the size they ought to be 🙁 do I sound disappointed (I am)

    Love the design – really suits the house too.
    Compared to Gardener's World, your designs and advice is just SO relatable and accessible. I wish you were on TV each week – I think I would be much more inclined to garden!

    Nicely constructed gardens Im just looking to do mine incorporating a dog area small lawn and decking / patio by newly to be installed french doors Oh yes and our chicken run LOL. With all the sun recently i've had time to see where we get the sun and where the shade is in my 20ft by 20ft ish garden ( Lived here for 20 years and only now seing where the sun sits in the garden thats bad isnt it :- / at least you show actual SMALL gardens in your vids.. The sleepers look like a good way to box out the areas but im worried that this will squeeze the family area down even more. hopefully the videos will guide me.

    As an old hippie that’s survived any number of unflattering hairstyles from the 60s — 90s, I hate to say that your hair is undermining your obvious professionalism. Trust me on this. You will cringe in 5 years. Re your garden design; actually pretty conservative but lovely.

    Your video is very enjoyable and informative. You are so knowledgeable and creative and you obviously love what you are doing. It is such a pleasure to see what you have done. Unfortunately I couldn't watch it for long because it was shaking while you were talking and it made my head spin a bit. I had to stop it and read the information below instead and I know I missed a lot. Thank you for sharing this.
