The yard I am working with is a large, fairly flat space. The flatness with the size makes it feel empty. It’s good for sports, but ignores the possibility of imagination niches for children.
Tall grasses can act as walls and tunnel. A change in topography can be a mountain, fort, back of a dinosaur or a thousand other things. The uses of native plants allow backyards to transform into adult relaxation spots as well as educational opportunities for kids to experience nature and ecology.
