Family-oriented backyards are booming right now. Kid-centered architecture helps families make their yards more enjoyable and functional. Making your backyard safer and more fun for your kids is essential, as it’s proven that time spent outdoors makes you happier and healthier and improves mental clarity. Your kid-centered backyard can help your children spend more time outdoors and will give them the chance to have active playtime with friends and neighbors. Here are some great ways to make your backyard more kid-friendly.
Add an Age-Appropriate Play Structure
Play structures and playhouses are crucial for kids’ imaginative and physical play. With swings, climbing areas, bars, and other balance tools, kids can learn to use their bodies in new ways. The play structure you choose can have a huge impact on how your child develops.
Include a Sandbox
Sandboxes are great fun for kids from age three to early adolescence. Your children can have a day at the beach without leaving the yard with a simple sandbox. Sandboxes are also unbounded flowerbeds for the imagination. The simplicity of your sandbox will help your kids think without limits on what their creativity can unleash.
Put in Some Lighting
Your backyard lighting should be more than a couple of sconce light fixtures attached to the house. Lighting helps kids see when the day starts turning into night. Make sure that they have enough light throughout the yard for their safety and comfort in the evening.
Install Some Shade and a Privacy Fence
Finally, a fencing company is an essential partner in making your backyard kid-centered. In fact, according to U.S. Zoning Committee experts, between 80 and 90% of received zoning easement applications are for outdoor privacy fences. Your kids need to have privacy and safety while they play, and making sure that you have a sturdy fence is a key part of that. Your contractor can work with you to make sure that your fence both lets your kids feel unencumbered and helps them feel safe, regardless of the type of fence you choose.
Your kid-centric backyard can be a reality sooner than you think. If you have kids, they need a safe and private place to play and explore the world. Contact Family Fence Company today for a free in-home estimate on fencing for your property. We look forward to working with you!
