Safety first

Safety is important and there are some things to consider in the garden.

  • Choose tools appropriate for the child's age and ability.
  • Keep sprays and fertilisers out of reach.
  • Do not use chemicals on plants that might be picked and eaten by young children.
  • Secure fences and gates.
  • Provide shade and sun protection including hats and sunscreen.
  • Encourage children to wear suitable clothing and sturdy footwear.
  • Be careful with water around very young children and toddlers.
