This is such a cute idea. I'm in love with the checkers game that's set up!

As a kid I loved the story The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett and if my parents had of made me a special area like this I would have been over the moon but I guess you are never too old right?? I am hoping my Niece will be as big a fan of this book as I was and we could make a secret garden like this together then

I have a secret garden on our property, along the fence and in a corner behind the pool pump. It is a dry, scorched patch that requires a lot of work. I will have to bring loads of top soil in and put down some paving stones. It may be a good spot to grow tomatoes.

How adorable! This design reminds me of an English garden, and I can definitely see myself reading in this cozy outdoor nook.

This project is such a unique and cool idea. It's incredible, and it inspires me to make something similar.

Wow, love this idea, not just for the kiddos, but for anyone who wants a serene place! I would add a water feature, from a simple self contained inexpensive table top fountain or if you had the resources, an actual fish filled Lilly padded rock pond! I have made stepping stones with glass colored marbles, and this would be the perfect spot for them! Love this beautiful idea!

Ahh, a secret garden! I have always wanted one of those. Especially for the grandkids. All it takes is a little nook and some imagination, unless of course you are going to use the ideas here! I think this is a wonderful idea to make a relaxing corner to get away from it all.

This secret garden looks adorable. These days space is such a problem that making something like this is a nice idea to pretty something up. It doesn't have to be a garden for kids. I can have a secret garden too! I can turn my small back yard space into something pretty.

Ohhhhhhh, Me wants me one of these. Oh yeah baby, it's a happening. Once it is done will share pics.

This "secret" garden project is just too cute! What an adorable little area for reading and relaxing. Plus, I love the checkerboard idea!
