When we moved into our house, we knew we wanted to go something with our front garden. It's a great space and originally I had thought of us doing similar to my mum and having a built in planter. However during the first lockdown last year we got to know our neighbours ( socially distanced) and over time Blake has made quite a few friends. He plays out the front often with them and so it was decided that we would make the area child friendly. As you can see in the above before photo it was all concrete, which we felt wasn't really safe for kids to play on. We also had a bench left from the previous owners but wanted to get a new one with storage space. First things first Stuart painted the walls cream to match part of the house. It made a huge difference and really brightened up the area.
