Spring is nearly upon us. The fun of the snow and ice has abated and left us with a slightly soggy outside space. Now is not only the time to start weeding and servicing the lawnmower but also the time to start looking at ways to ensure gardens are versatile and useable for the whole family.
Before we built our children a treehouse and play area the garden was a place ready for adult socialising with the table and chairs in place. However the children’s toys were kept in a dark area of the cold shed (possibly all broken). Now is the time to start looking at ways you too can give your children an area to use not only in the summer but all year round.
One of the best ways to do this is a treehouse or purpose built play area – not all of us are blessed with that perfect tree for the dream treehouse. Gardenatics works with families and the space available to create an area which children will use forever (lets remember even as adults we like to relive our youth from time to time – I mean, who doesn’t like sitting on a swing or going down a zip wire?)
The answer to this question depends upon your family, every single one is different. Some children are climbers, while others will go down a slide endlessly and lets not forget those who will play in a fort or princess tower all day long. Having a mix of options is always a good idea but remembering to build to the requirements of your families individual needs is paramount. The options are endless, here are some ideas…
If you have the tree look to use the branches in different ways. In this design the branch holds the rope to connect the two platforms.
Bridges, swings, cargo net, monkey bars and slide as well as forts – who could ask for more?
Mix it up, climbing walls don’t have to be square and slides can be open spirals. Zip wires can be attached and Picnic Areas can be incorporated too
There are lots of different bridges to choose from, we can help you select the best one for you.
The younger of our two grandsons had his 8th birthday party. The tree house had a thorough test by 16 children between aged 7 and 11. It has survived with no ill effects, being agreed to be ‘cool’ and a good thing.- D. Potter
Thanks for an amazing job.- S. Kirk
Great job building our climbing frame – friendly people, easy to deal with and flexible on the design. Highly recommend!- B. Mitchell
It looks fantastic and we are really pleased. The boys spent the whole day on it yesterday and refused to stop even for the rain. The big question now is whether we can ever persuade them to leave the garden to do something else.- P. Crofts
That looks amazing!- The Daughter of R Slade
Thank you for making the most of our small, sloping garden. The design makes the most of the space available, is great for all kinds of play, we even use it for homework now!- F. Haig
The climbing frame and swings are great and we are really pleased with it. It is getting good use already.- C. Evans
Thanks for a great, professional job. The kids are delighted. We’re very pleased, thank you.- J. Jaggard
