Here is a before shot of the yard (taken early April, we still had leaves falling). It might look like a small corner of the yard, but it’s actually a nice level area. Most of our yard has a slight incline. This space is perfect for housing something functional and fun.
Now here is the after - our little girls play haven.
The area is really simple. First we pulled/dug up the grass, put down landscaping fabric and edging. Next we added a white picket fence for safety (space is up against edge of yard that drops into a hill) and cuteness factor. Than some wood chips, playhouse, slide, chair and if you look really hard a pink wired flower from our local home and garden store.
She is enjoying the space. Everyday she is out there digging in the wood chips and sometimes throwing them at the cat (poor cat).
One summer project down. Now many many more to go. What have you been working on this summer.
