Play with (or at least next to) your food!  No problem.  

We could not wait to get our hands on this large lawn (3,100 SF) to start carving out generous areas for planting and exploring.  We increased the size of the borders between the property line and existing lawn to create ample space for various play structures between the vegetable garden’s raised beds and kiwi trellises.  

All green-waste (tree clippings and sod) was integrated into a “hugel” to reintegrate the biomass in the existing landscape and create landforms on an otherwise totally flat site. We planted them with berries and pollinator friendly perennials to shape secret gardens that can be traversed over and through.
