Child Friendly Backyard
What do you want to do in your backyard?
When a family moved to a new home, the interior renovations weren’t their only things on their “Home Improvement List.” This family had a vision for extending their useful square footage for their active family into the hilly backyard.
The Landscape Design Inspiration:
Create a child-friendly backyard with multiple garden walls
Design an outdoor fireplace with new patio replacing old deck
Create space for swings
Ease of maintenance
Nothing makes a gorgeous yard more enjoyable than mother nature doing most of your work. Marcia worked with this family to add layers of lush greenery and pops of color that come back year after year, as well as a brick retaining wall to separate active play space from backdrop beauty.
To add direction and movement to the terraced lawn, Marcia incorporated brick stairs into the layers of useful space.
Because who doesn’t enjoy cozy time around the fire - Check out this structural brick outdoor fireplace perfect for fall and winter marshmallow roasting.
Have you given your family’s outdoor living space much thought? Maybe you should think how some landscape updates could help you encourage your kids to be outside more and off their screens. Perhaps it would even help you… Nature is such a wonderful gift.
