@lovetogarden.. i hve one side of the garden like that.. i have made a woodland garden and this autum will cover the grass or moss as it is in the winter and most of the year with bark.. for a natural looking path through..
i have a 6 year old auntie betty and he using back lawn.. but filled with climbing frame and trampoline mainly.. he loves the garden and digging in the veg plot with his diggers and helping sow seeds and veg.. he has become very good at dead heading my flowers now.. after some few weeks of lessons and is a dab hand at filling pots and watering.. he also loves watching and messing about with the insects and bugs.. he loves watching the butterflies (thou not had many this year) and watching hte birds on the feeders.. last week he found a huge white larvae bug thing under the lawn with a brown head and 6 legs on it..dunno what is was..
santa got him a childrens bug microscope for xmas and it it is brilliant.. put it on the tray and it magnifies very big and you can see top and underneath.. me not so keen to look at them they very large. its called a" creature peeper" the over and under insect magnifier.. it is great got it on amazon i think.
if they love bugs this is a must have..and not expensive either..
