Mother builds secret mini-garden as gift for daughter
The more time there is between adulthood and childhood, the harder it can be to know the hearts and minds of children. At the same time, the hopes and dreams of these lively kids are not really that much of a secret. One wish that all children share, is the longing for a secret place without their parents, a place for daydreaming and playing. This was exactly what one mother wanted to give her daughter for her birthday. But there was a lot of work ahead of her, because the garden was a wasteland.
After the area of the entire garden had been straightened out, a corner for her little daughter was marked off. It became a play area just for her, including a little staircase for tiny feet.
A hedge of conifers and a heart-motif gate separated the little wonderland from the rest of the garden. Entry is strictly forbidden for anyone over 4'2''!
Using paving stones, the mother created an elegant gaming board.
Don't forget to use suitable and child-appropriate stones for the playing pieces. In this garden, these consisted of painted stones, a swarm of bees facing off against a troop of ladybugs.
It took more than grass to make this secret garden the perfect place for children to play. Colorful flowers brightened up the place and on top of that, a home-made fountain was installed to entice you to dip your fingers in the water. As shown by the official tester, one little brother.
A further highlight in the little girl's paradise is the miniature version of a garden in a garden. Tiny fairies feel particularly at home here.
The pint-sized horticultural show continues, with a small bench containing an integrated secret compartment.
The crowning glory is a chain of lights that provide cosy comfort at night time.
This colorful garden hideaway definitely proved a hit!
Is there really any reason to leave what is probably the most beautiful little place for miles around?
This little girl's life couldn't get much better — unless she suddenly gets an unlimited supply of candy and is allowed to stay up to watch TV as long as she likes. But, she can indulge in such dreams, and many others, in her own green little corner of peace and happiness.
