All work and no play makes every family miserable! But a bit of clever thinking and some careful planning can help you make even the smallest patch of grass into a space that both kids and adults will love spending time in.
Plus, with our know-how and experience, the team at AG can help you create an outside room that’s child’s play to achieve.
Our design team really went to town with this deceptively simple scheme which gives children and adults all the space they need to let off some steam.
Our TerraPave flags in a Verona Ground finish, give the space a warm Mediterranean feel. They have a very smooth finish which, in addition to being contemporary, is easy to keep clean. Made from natural aggregate, this is one of the highest quality products we produce and it will only grow more beautiful with every decade that passes.
We have also matched a Regal Stone retaining wall in Cashel to provide some raised bedding areas. This easy-to-build, mortar-free vertical walling system provides additional protection for flowers and plants from little hands and feet.
There’ll be no need to chase kids away from the TV screen if you create an outside room that they can really explore, enjoy and make their own.
In fact, you don't have to create one large play area - work with the space you have and create small nooks with the kids in mind. A small sand pit in one corner, maybe a swing set on the patio or lawn and a chalkboard on the fence.
Utilise your outdoor space and create a garden you can all enjoy.
An outdoor blackboard is a great, inexpensive way to keep children and adults occupied. Plus, because it’s outside, there’s no need to worry about vacuuming up chalk dust!
