There were several books/films from my childhood that affected my view on life and how I wanted my home to be when I grew up. One of them was The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. This book is over 100 years old but still holds appeal because a secret garden is magical. When designing a secret garden space for children, find an area that offers them a bit of privacy, for imaginative play. Good spots for a secret garden:

  • Near or under a tree
  • Under a small gazebo or near an arbor
  • Surrounded by hedge “walls”
  • At the end of a patio or deck, with planters or flower-boxes as walls

I know the ideas featured in this article are more grown up, but they will give you an idea of what yours could be like and then get your children/grandchildren involved too! Share the secret together! Click the link below to view all 14 secret garden ideas…..
