Eliminate backyard dangers!

 

When your backyard is the main hangout spot for your kids, how do you make sure it is a safe space for them to play? 

 

Sure, there are the basics, like mowing the lawn regularly and keeping it clean, but what are other steps you can take to make sure it's a safe space?

 

My Health Alberta defines ways to safe-proof your backyard: 

  • ​Make sure all fence gates are self-closing and self-latching

  • Build a fence or partition to separate the play area from the driveway and garage

  • Do not use backyard trampolines (as tempting as it may be!)

  • Store all chemicals (pesticides, fertilizers, etc.) away from children

  • Ensure that all of the plants in your yard are non-toxic 

  • Ensure power tools (lawn mowers, weed wackers, etc.) are turned off and left inoperable in an inclosed space

  • If using a waterslide, use it on only grass and make sure the area is free of obstacles and debris
     

If you are questioning the safety of your backyard, hiring a handyman to come inspect and child-proof the space can be helpful.
