The beautiful strength and durability of wood…. what better material for a natural garden. The famous RHS show provides inspiration for family gardens with timber garden toys, structures and furniture.
In spaces for children, clever use of natural materials can encourage heuristic play, look stunning and provide shelter for wildlife. Think less plastic sand pits more wooden stepping-stones set in long grass. It’s wonderful to see children play in a more simple, imaginative way; using beautiful garden features which are a pleasure to look at and better for the environment.
