Any garden is a child’s garden, as long as there is space (and time) for a child to take it all in. Kids love enclosed hide-outs as well as open expanses. They love to feel, smell, smash, muck, poke, dig, hide, uncover, taste, roll, splash, tear… and surrounding them with plants that are safe, tough, and invite interaction can create a magical experience for kids of all ages. We love using plants with unusual parts, that attract butterflies, that bear fruit and have pretty flowers and are fragrant or edible. Getting down at the eye level of a child is one of the simplest and richest, most revealing exercises for me as a designer.
