A garden for the whole family

Families make many conflicting demands on a garden. Children need space to play and keep pets, while adults want an attractive environment in which to relax and entertain friends. The design of a family garden needs to reflect these different requirements and be flexible enough to evolve as the family grows up.


Child friendly plants

There are many easily grown, non-toxic plants soft enough to do no harm if children fall against them, yet resilient enough to survive garden games.
