We love working on gardens for children, particularly when they are involved in the plant selection and design process. Bird & Butterfly gardens go hand in hand with designing for children - by bringing nature into the mix they can follow the life cycles of insects, or try to figure out the difference between a humming bird and a moth that looks and acts like one. Berry patches make great lead ins or hedges for children's vegetable gardens.

Out of necessity I have a sandbox in a flower bed and everyone will be relieved to know that insects are no more drawn to the sandbox than they are to my patio seating. It is perfectly lovely and as safe as any other spot outdoors.
