Slippery Slope

Before this lawn's transformation, an awkward slope made it difficult to mow and landscape.

Nature's Playground

A butterfly bush attracts an array of pollinators.

Paving the Way

Creating multiple levels raises the playhouse to a place of prominence.

Color Field

During the warmer months, the butterfly and bird garden is a riot of color.

Rock On

A rock retaining wall, where the yard originally sloped upward, frames the garden.

Take a Walk

A walkway of fieldstone slabs winds through berry bushes.

Picture Perfect

The partition of the children's gardening and play area makes it even more inviting. They have the sense that it is their "special place."
