Having a small, bare yard was no obstacle to mum Tamara Best when it came to giving her young son the garden of his dreams.

When her son turned two, she decided to transform her yard into a magical play area for her outdoor-loving toddler.

The makeover for the 10m by 4m space took around four weeks to complete.

“This project was mostly completed by my husband and I, excluding the installation of Artificial Turf. We hired a landscaper for this job,” Tamara explains.

All the materials were purchased from Bunnings, Kmart and Ikea and the entire project came in at around $3000.

“Shop around your local stores for budget friendly ideas and jump online to gain some inspiration from others, and tweak it to your preference,” Tamara says.

“Don’t be afraid of a little DIY job – not only is it satisfying to complete your own project, but it will also save you money in the long run.”

“My son loves to be outdoors and in the fresh air. We needed a space where he felt comfortable, safe and had nothing short of endless fun,” Tamara says.

“He really enjoys the kitchen/cafe style set up in the cubby house. A lot of hours spent role playing with his friends.

“The look on his sweet little face was priceless – the best birthday gift ever!”
