A Landscape Design for the Whole Family

Family playing in backyard

Now, more than ever, it’s important to have a private and safe space for the whole family to enjoy the outdoors. A backyard landscape allows your family a safe escape from the indoors. To fully maximize your outdoor space, it needs to include elements for everyone in the family to enjoy.

When you’re first planning your new landscape design for the whole family, it’s important to have a clear idea of what you will be using the space for. Some questions you can ask yourself are:

  • What will you be using the space for?
  • Who is the space being designed for?
  • Will you be entertaining?
  • Do you have small kids?
  • Do you want grass space for your pets?
  • Will you need storage?
  • Will you be using your landscape at night?
  • What kind of maintenance/upkeep are you comfortable with?

No matter what your family’s needs are, there are plenty of ways to incorporate a variety of landscape features into your design so the whole family can enjoy your new outdoor space. Our landscape designers will consult with your family to design a custom landscape to suit your needs, lifestyle, and your space.  Here are some landscape element suggestions for different families:
