Children’s Garden Design
Planning Unique Places for Little Ones
Bring joy to your children’s garden
Planning unique places for little ones to learn to love the beauty of nature is one way Hanselman Landscape can bring joy to your garden! Our children’s garden designs are thoughtfully crafted by world-class designers and fit the feel and aesthetic of preexisting gardens or landscaping on your property.
Providing children with a joyful outdoor space to explore can help nurture an appreciation for nature and give them the freedom to learn and play. Outdoor gardens provide endless opportunities for children and merge playful elements with the great outdoors.
Inspiring the Imagination
Garden spaces for children should offer endless opportunities for learning and exploration. While we can create safe garden spaces specifically for children, we also understand that a comprehensive design may be a priority and are able to bring your garden goals together to meet your family’s needs and desires.
As we design, we will keep in mind the size and energy levels of the little ones who will be playing there. We want them to feel safe and sheltered in their special garden spaces
Fostering an affinity for the textures and intricacies of the natural world is reason enough for building play places with smooth rocks, grassy hillocks, and child-sized canyons rather than with man-made playground equipment. Besides, these natural elements can be easily incorporated into the rest of the garden design, adding to (rather than detracting from) the garden’s beauty.
Twists and turns in a pathway, rocks for climbing, or a sandy “beach” are all elements we can incorporate in a garden to foster your children’s natural curiosity, sense of wonder, and creativity.
Give your little ones the gift of inspiration by providing them with a space to use their imagination. Outdoor children’s gardens give children the space and freedom to play, explore, learn, and immerse themselves in nature.

“WE ARE VERY GRATEFUL FOR OUR GARDEN DESIGN FROM HANSELMAN LANDSCAPE. THEY EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS AND CREATED SOMETHING WE COULDN’T HAVE IMAGINED. THE ENTIRE TEAM IS EXCEPTIONAL AND VERY PROFESSIONAL, AND WE COULDN’T BE HAPPIER WITH THE RESULTS.”“
What surprised us most was how much more we love our home since Hanselman Landscape began working here! The porch, patio, pool and garden together create a refreshing new feeling in what used to be a boring, flat backyard. In addition to the beautiful new backyard oasis they created, they are here regularly to care for our plants, turning existing shrubs that we thought were worthless into beautiful, valuable specimens.
Our needs were to have as much privacy as possible from neighboring homes. The landscape, because of the size of the trees, does that now. Everything was done to perfection. This was the first time in a while (even with building a new home) that we gave the job to someone and never, ever had to go over again and again what was to be done. It was a real pleasure to have your services.
Words do not serve well to express the sense of serenity and pleasure which your fine work evokes. On returning home from my difficult duties this week, this special place which you have created for us provided a welcome respite. I would liken the feeling to that of walking alone through a great museum.
I can’t even put into words how much I love my new yard. Hanselman Landscape did an outstanding job–changing an ugly piece of land into a serene and beautiful garden. Everything is just perfect. I most enjoy the woodland theme and the variety of textures and colors in the new plants. The workmanship of Hanselman Landscape’s employees is of the highest quality, and the customer service is courteous and professional.
Hanselman Landscape has helped us re-landscape our property over the past 3 years. James has a way of guiding you through your own garden, taking in the vantage points, and uncovering your vision (even though you didn’t know you had one)!
We liked the way James (Hanselman) explained and introduced the suggested plantings, actually showing us leaf samples. We needed and appreciated his guidance on how we can nurture and maintain the plants in the future. Thanks for adding to our enjoyment of our home with your creative landscaping. We are definitely pleased to have had your expertise.
