A family in suburban Boston wanted their preschool-age daughter to have opportunities for imaginative play, exploring natural materials, and whole-body movement. The backyard is surrounded by woods, and Gardens For Life saw potential in a circle of trees just beyond the lawn.
Gardens For Life designed a flexible space that can be changed over time according to their daughter’s needs and interests. A play kitchen, fire ring, and fort-building materials provide endless opportunities for dramatic play. Stumps, boulders, and a slackline encourage climbing and balancing.
The family loves playing together and invites friends over to make “cupcakes” using natural materials!
