The Ultimate Guide to Choosing a Wooden Playhouse for Your Garden


Are you dreaming of adding a magical touch to your garden with a wooden playhouse for your little ones? You’re in the right place! We’re here to guide you through choosing the perfect wooden playhouse that will bring endless smiles and create lasting memories.


Understanding Your Garden Space
First things first, let’s talk about your garden. Size does matter here, but don’t worry, we’ve got options for all garden sizes. Take a little time to measure your space and consider how the playhouse will fit. Also, given our lovely Irish weather, think about positioning that can withstand a bit of rain and wind.

The Right Size and Design
When it comes to size and design, think about what your child would love and what fits your garden. From fairy-tale castles to cozy cottages, the options are endless. Remember, the playhouse should grow with your child, so think long-term.

Material Matters
We love wood – it’s durable, natural, and blends beautifully with outdoor settings. Wood is sustainable and robust enough to handle our Irish climate. And yes, a little bit of maintenance goes a long way in keeping the playhouse in tip-top shape! We recommend treating your playhouse with a preservative before assembly to make it easier to get full coverage.
