Safety around the garden
Buckets, garden pots, ponds and water features can be hazardous to your child.
They can drown in only in centimeters of water so always be aware of what is around your garden.
After using a bucket or tub empty it out and turn it upside down to stop water accumulating and presenting a hazard that you might not be aware of.
Cover ponds and water features with a sturdy iron mesh. These need to be sturdy enough to withhold a child so prop them up well under the water so if the child ends up on the mesh they can hold them out of the water.
