AS SUMMER ARRIVES,

the scent of roses and honeysuckle fills the air, and the garden becomes a vibrant haven of colors and fragrances. June is the perfect time to embark on a family garden project that not only enhances your outdoor space but also creates lasting memories. With school out and family vacations on the horizon, why not transform your garden into a beautiful retreat that everyone can enjoy?

Family Involvement: Bringing Everyone Together

Gardening is a wonderful way to bring the family together. Start by involving everyone in the planning process. Discuss what plants and colors you’d like to incorporate. Roses are a timeless choice, offering a variety of colors and scents. Honeysuckle, with its sweet fragrance and ability to attract hummingbirds, adds a touch of enchantment. Consider adding a splash of light purple to your garden palette—lavender and lilac plants are perfect for this.

Make the project a family affair by assigning tasks to everyone. Kids can help with planting, watering, and decorating. Parents can take on more challenging tasks like setting up birdbaths and assembling plant stands. Working together not only speeds up the process but also teaches children valuable gardening skills.

Planning Your Garden

Gather the family for a brainstorming session. Decide on the layout, types of plants, and garden features you want to include. Think about how you want to use the space—do you want a reading nook, a play area for the kids, or an outdoor dining space? This is really the most important part of the project. If you don’t have a plan, you’re going to have a problem.

We’ve collected some of our favorite how-to’s on creating different types of gardens in and around your home.
