How do I make my garden with garden furniture child-friendly?

Spring is coming and it’s almost time to get your garden furniture ready for use again. Before you get your garden furniture out again and the kids can play and unwind in the garden again, it is important to make sure your garden with garden furniture is child-friendly. Wait a while before cleaning your garden furniture and see what needs to be done before you can enjoy your garden furniture again. Want to know the best way to do this and can’t wait to put your garden furniture down again? Then read on about how you can enjoy your garden furniture in a child-friendly garden.

What should your child-friendly garden with garden furniture comply with? 

Actually, it is very simple. There are only two main requirements that your child-friendly garden with garden furniture must meet. The garden must be safe so the children can play and romp to their heart’s content and it is important to have a place with nice garden furniture where you and your partner can unwind. There is also very nice garden furniture available especially for children. This garden furniture is very trendy, because children deserve a place of their own with garden furniture. You can read more about this furniture later in this blog.

The safety of your garden and garden furniture

Garden fence

When you still have young children, it is very important to make sure you have a good fence in your yard. Make sure they can’t just walk to the street by installing a nice fence or fence, for example. However, it is important to make sure that they cannot use the garden furniture to climb over the fence.


Should there be a pond in the garden, make sure it is safe. Prevent a child from falling into it. Place a special fence around it or remove the entire pond.

Shade spots

It is often forgotten that the sun can also be dangerous, especially for children. Create a play area in an area with plenty of shade or provide adequate shade by, for example, putting up a mobile parasol or hanging a shade cloth.  Also, when they take a break on the garden furniture, it is important that this garden furniture is in the shade.

Poisonous plants

Pay close attention to which plants you place in your garden. Avoid poisonous plants and also plants with colorful small berries. This is because these are very attractive to children and especially small children are easily tempted to put these berries in their mouths.


Furthermore, it is very important to pay close attention to the surface. Make it child-friendly by making sure the surface is soft so they can’t fall too hard. For example, place rubber tiles under the climbing equipment. Rubber tiles do have the disadvantage that they can get very hot in the sun. You can also choose sand instead, but the disadvantage of this is that it quickly becomes mud when it rains. If you would rather not have mud monsters running around in your garden, it is wise to go for (artificial) grass.

How to make the garden fun and kid-friendly?

Once your garden is safe, it’s time for the fun stuff. Think about the kids by installing a swing, trampoline or climbing apparatus, for example. Surely a sandbox is a must-have for most children. If you don’t want the neighborhood cats to use the sandbox as a luxury toilet,  make sure you cover it well with a lid. Create fun play areas here and there for the kids. If you have the space, create their own corner with garden furniture such as a picnic bench, a nice hanging chair or trendy beanbags. There is a lot of fun garden furniture available that will make children happy.  

Got all of the above under control? Put your garden furniture back down and then plop down together on your relaxing garden chairs. With a nice drink, enjoy the children playing in your child-friendly garden.
