My son already uses his plastic shears to cut the hedge, mows the lawn, digs and waters. I couldn't stop him if I wanted to, he has a mind of his own. He does have a lawn area and a play area, we are lucky enough to have the space but of course the whole garden is his, he is a free range toddler. My theory is if he learns to respect and care for the garden now he is less likely to destroy it when he gets older.
