All About

A bench is designed around the avocado tree to give the kids something to play on, adults a place to sit and to protect the tree's roots. The lawn and play area mimics the shape of the patio and gives the kids a space of their own surrounded by safe playground mulch and kid-friendly plants. They designed a cool feature for the kids that can act as a tent and as a fun water feature in the summer.
