Childrens' garden pirate ship

Watching the garden develop has been a joy – the planting plan means that something new constantly pops up to surprise and delight. Thank you Gareth.

Playhouses and fun spaces

Let your child’s imagination take flight

Usually children spend more time in the garden than anybody else. The garden is a magical world to explore and to stretch the imagination.  It is made for a sense of freedom and expression, but it is also a great place to learn.  Our gardens try to do both.

At the Open Living Company, we think that creating fun gardens for children means involving not just the parents, but also the children themselves in the design and evolution of the garden – working together to produce something really special.

Creative play spaces to suit any garden or pocket

And we can do it in any space and to any pocket.  It can be as simple as creating flower islands for children to run around or a secret garden hidden behind flat castle or gingerbread cottage-shaped fronts. Or it can be more intricate, creating a Happy House with grass hair and a huge smiley face, or Blackbeard’s pirate ship or Cinderella’s coach for example. Or a fairy kingdom at the bottom of a tree…the possibilities are as endless as your child’s imagination.

Educational play gardens

And it can be based on learning.  Latin plant names, compass points, world signposts, a water table, a wormery or planting their own vegetable patch…they can learn about the lifecycle of plants and even the fussiest eater may be persuaded to eat their own produce!
