Difficult changes of grade made this yard inaccessible and unusable. We transformed the space with whimsical, brightly colored lumber structures, planters, garden walls and steps. Now the yard is functional and easily accessible. A sunken playroom for the children at the base of the stairs can be easily observed from a deck wrapping around the house. A path leads to a more relaxing space softened by a multitude of plants and a raised vegetable garden.
