When was the last time you crawled on your hands and knees around your garden’s shed? As strange as that may sound, maybe you should give it a try. If you have children, you should be well aware that they have a natural tendency to explore their everyday environment; therefore, it’s vital to check things out from their perspective to ensure that your garden and shed are child friendly.
When we hear the term “baby proofing” or “childproofing”, we often first think of babies. However, whether we like to believe it or not, the leading cause of death in kids 14 years of age and under is due to unintentional injury. What’s more astonishing is that more than a third of these injuries occur right at home. With that being said, it’s clear to see that safety in the home and garden is something that we can never take too seriously. But at the same time, we also want to make our children’s time outdoors as enjoyable as possible.

It may be advisable to change the shed to a more robust type that can accept shed insulation. Generally, any type of standard timber shed can accept shed insulation to help it retain heat better in the months of colder weather.
