Does your little one love the outdoors? If he does, and he wants to spend more time in your flourishing garden, then here are a few tips to make sure your garden is safe enough for him.
Take care of the potentially dangerous branches and tree
If your garden has dangerously old trees that are on the verge of dying or falling over, then not only is it a potential danger to your little one, it can be harmful to anyone. If you live in Sydney, contact tree services North Shore NSW (or a similar service) to help you deal with this problem. Remember that if you have a healthy tree, you can easily turn it into a charming spot to hang out a rope swing for your little one. Try your best not to remove or uproot the plant; working hard nurse it back to health. But at the same time, don’t take chances with the well being of your child.
Getting rid of the thorns and the poisonous plants
Not poisonous plant or thorny bush is too far away from your selected play area in the garden; because believe us when we say your little one will find it. They will fall into those bushes in the most unexpected ways. If you’re not sure which plants are poisonous, then along with leading arborist in Chatswood based, you might also have to contact a professional gardener to help you out. If this is not an option, the internet will always have information for you…!
Putting up a protective fence
As much as we would like to deny it, we cannot, with an honest heart, say that the world that we live in is a safe place for anyone. Adults and children alike are always in danger; and sometimes through unexpected ways. You might feel you’re far enough from the traffic or that your neighbors are a friendly enough bunch, but it’s always best not to take chances with the safety of your little one. Put up a steady and protective fence around your property. And the bonus? It’ll keep your pets from running off and getting lost!
Setting up a shady area for your little one to play at
The sun can be really brutal on some days; but you already know that that’s not going to stop your little one from wanting to explore or play out in the garden. Instead of having to restrict him, or constantly worry about him getting dangerously sunburnt, make sure your little one has a shady area to play at. Also, it’s a good idea to put down a play time rule; if he wants to lay outside, he needs to apply sunscreen first. It might take a while for the routine to form, but you’ll get there eventually…
