Landscaping Ideas That Keep Kids In Mind

With the weather warming up, it's time to get the kids outside to enjoy the sunshine and fresh air. While you commonly think of landscaping for curb appeal, aesthetics, or even your own satisfaction, did you know that you can landscape for your kids enjoyment as well? At Paradise Landscaping, we want to provide quality service to ALL of our customers, even the young ones. Here are a few ways we can implement landscaping designs into your yard that will help your children.

Pave a Path

Make it safe for small toddlers by providing level pathways for them to wander around on. At Paradise Landscaping, not only can we help you create these pathways, but we can help you maintain them as well. When you get regular landscape maintenance at the Lake of the Ozarks, one of the details we'll focus on is the sweeping and cleaning of your hardscapes. This will also help keep little feet from tripping over leafs, branches and other debris that builds up on the sidewalk.

Add a Little Shade

Shade can be a great addition to a yard when you'll have little ones playing in it. There are many advantages to planting trees in your yard. They can protect from the sun, help protect against strong winds, and create fresh air. If you don't know what kind of trees you want, we can help you select trees that will survive well in Missouri, as well as who you the best place to put them for their growth rates.

Create Storage

With kids, you will find that they have plenty of toys that will get scattered around the yard. To help keep these to a minimum in your yard, and keep them from ending up in locations that they shouldn't (like in the driveway when you're backing out), you can designate an area that these items belong. Not only will you be helping keep your landscape clean, but you'll be teaching valuable lessons in responsibility!

Safety First!

As with all landscapes, you want to make sure that safety is the number one priority. Install fences around your Lake of the Ozarks pool, make sure the terrain is level and don't use toxic chemicals on your plants. Taking a few precautionary measures now will help in the future.

Summer Fun with a Sprinkler System

Imagine a warm sunny day, swimsuits on, goggles ready and a splash around the yard with the sprinkler system. Kill two birds with one stone when you install a sprinkler system at the Lake of the Ozarks! You can keep your kids entertained throughout the day, and also water your yard and keep it looking green.

Revamp The Yard When They're Grown

While your yard may look like a park while your kids are younger with sandboxes, play sets, and baby pools, someday all of those items won't be necessary. Enjoy them now, and realize that when the kids are older you can have your backyard paradise back to what it once was! You can convert a sandbox into a flower bed, the play set can be donated or sold, and the baby pool can be traded in for a beautiful water garden that they won't accidentally fall into now!
