Top 5 Kid Friendly Backyard Designs

Summer in Perth means we get to spend a lot more time outdoors. This provides parents with the perfect opportunity to get a little more crafty with their own alfresco and backyard. Consider turning the backyard into a fun playground while ensuring it is kid-proof.

Take a look at these Top 5 kid friendly backyard designs that will get the kids outside playing.

1. The Sandpit


The sandbox is a classic favourite in backyards. They vary in shape and size so they can fit in a backyard space, no matter how small.

4. Teepee Tent


Turn the backyard into an adventurous playground with the addition of a ‘teepee’ tent. Perfect to keep cool on hotter days too.

5. A Swing


Swinging is a kid’s favourite past-time. If you’ve got the backyard for it, put in a swing and if you’re creative, turn it into a DIY project – like using an old tire or an old chair.
