Loma and Emma were pretty keen to have a space outdoors where the kids could play and be entertained. Their existing garden was spacious, flat and sunny (although we didn't see much sun when we were there!) so Dan planned a complete area with edible feijoa hedging leading from the stairs off the back deck to a playground, sandpit and large bespoke washing line made from recycled Totora. This is a fun yet practical space for both the kids and the parents to enjoy, and with EcoLawn artificial turf laid under the huge Kiwiplay playground it's an all weather outdoor option for the kids.
