Children’s Garden


This children’s garden was designed to be a formal space that youngsters and adults could enjoy at the same time.

The design revolved around a central lawn with a screening of Holm oaks to give added privacy at the back of the garden. This gave a perfect space to hide a small wooden wendy house within the woodland.

The lawn at the centre of the garden was surrounded by a Yorkstone border allowing children to ride around the lawn on bicycles and giving the space a good finish.

A play complex was erected at one end of the lawn which could be removed once the children grow up, returning the lawn to its formal purpose.

This project is a classic example of how landscape gardening in Scotland can be for the youngsters just as much as it is for the adults.
