How Should I Approach Landscaping My Childcare Centre?

Hello again, garden and landscape enthusiasts! Welcome back to Perth Landscapes, where “The Art of Landscaping is Perfected in Perth.” Today, we tackle a topic that might not be the first thing on your mind when you think of landscaping, but it’s essential—landscaping a childcare centre.

The Importance of Outdoor Space

Before we get into the nitty-gritty, let’s talk about why outdoor spaces are crucial for childcare centres. Research shows that exposure to nature and outdoor play has multiple benefits for children, including improved cognitive function, enhanced creativity, and better mental well-being. Now, what parent wouldn’t want that for their child?

Safety First

When it comes to children, safety is the top priority. Plants with thorns, fruits, or poisonous substances are a no-go. We also carefully consider pathways, fencing, and overhead structures to ensure they are child-friendly and secure.

Peter Harrison, a satisfied client, pointed out our attention to safety and detail: “Alex recently designed/landscaped my front and rear yards, including retaining walls, fence, paving, reticulation and native trees/plants. The yard was in a terrible state (sand pit!) but we wanted to maintain a similar structure with a low-maintenance outcome. Alex managed this exactly to our expectations.”

Interactive & Educational Elements

Kids love to explore and learn. At Perth Landscapes, we recommend adding interactive features like vegetable patches, butterfly gardens, or bird feeders. Not only do these elements engage children, but they also offer educational opportunities.

Client Joanne Grant spoke highly of our diverse landscaping capabilities: “Alex did a great job fixing our fence and retaining. Top quality finish! We’ll be using Perth Landscapes in the future for sure and highly recommend them.”

Maintenance Matters

A childcare centre garden will be used—make that, thoroughly used—so make sure you choose durable and low-maintenance materials and plants. Opt for native plants that don’t require much care but offer vibrant colors and textures. High-traffic areas might benefit from the use of artificial grass, which stands up to wear and tear better than natural lawns.

A longtime client, Zoe Gibson, couldn’t help but sing praises for the enduring quality of our work: “It’s been almost two years, and my garden is thriving! Would definitely use his services again and highly recommend him.”

Practical Considerations

Access to water, proper drainage, and efficient reticulation systems are necessary to keep the landscape fresh and inviting. These are aspects we pride ourselves on at Perth Landscapes. Your one point of contact throughout this journey will be our esteemed director, Alex Cameron. He ensures that every project we undertake meets our high standards of excellence.

Our client Phil attests to this: “The level of professionalism Perth Landscapes offers is next to none. Most importantly, offering further suggestions to add value, and improve sustainability whilst considering future implications of unexpected environmental costs.”
