Plan Description

Young gardeners will thrive in this backyard, which is specially designed to entice a child into horticulture with a circular vegetable garden and a barn-and-silo playhouse or toolshed. The stepping-stones in the garden make a perfect spot for hopscotch, and the swing set, sandbox and lawn provide other places to romp. Vegetables grow just as well in beds as in rows, and the circular bed used here better suits a child's sense of necessary disorder. Surrounded by a gravel path and crisscrossed by pathways, the garden presents four individual easy-care beds that can be planted with several types of vegetables. Begin with your child's favorites in order to create enthusiasm for gardening. Then add a few new ones to encourage investigation. Eating a vine-ripened tomato grown personally by the child may be enough to convert a typical play-obsessed ten-year-old into a lifelong gardener. Parents will like this backyard design, too. It combines a permanent structure of easy-care trees, shrubs and perennials, which produce a beautiful color display spring through fall, and a handsome brick patio for relaxing and entertaining. The circular shape of the vegetable bed, which can be turned into a pretty herb or flower bed if the kids lose interest, echoes the curves of the lawn, making it an attractive, yet functional, design element. For safety's sake, the entire backyard is open and visible from the patio and has only one gate. A child can skip right along the stepping stones to tend a personal vegetable garden in this cleverly designed backyard. With a barn-and-silo playhouse and compost bin adjacent to the garden, your child can exercise imagination in creative play while helping with the chores and learning about recycling. @season:Shown in Summer Michael J.
