Kid-Friendly Gardening

Whether you garden with your own children or those of family and friends consider making a portion of your landscape kid friendly.

Reserve a bit of space for a lean-to or teepee made from landscape trimmings or a sunflower house grown from seed.  This allows the kids to be close at hand, but have their own space to dig and play.

Leave plenty of space for digging and play as well as planting, weeding and harvesting. A container of rye grass will quickly sprout and can be mown with kid-friendly scissors.  This makes a perfect play area for action figures and dolls.

Bring the kids into the garden with fun theme-based designs.  A pizza garden with Roma tomatoes, peppers, onions, basil and oregano provides the ingredients for you to make your own.

Or create a rainbow with ribbons of red, orange, yellow, green and blue and purple flowers.  Have your floral rainbow end in a pot of gold marigolds or zinnias.

A bit more information:  Bring in the butterflies and birds for kids of all ages to enjoy.  Include plants that provide nectar for hummingbirds and butterflies and seeds for the birds. Add a colorful bird bath as a focal point and water for the wildlife.
