A video transcript featuring Ive Haugeland, Shades of Green Landscape Architecture

Design goals In this property, the client has three kids and a dog. They wanted to make sure there was still enough room for the kids to play.

Landscaping solutions The lot is 25 by 50 feet. It's big enough to play catch or to play soccer. They also had a play structure that we placed as far away from the patio as we could. We just did a simple screening - just planting around the lawn to not take up too much space. We used ornamental pears and variegated Pittosporum around the edges.
