Part 2: Backyard family fun- outdoor entertaining area for kids and adults
Location: Medford, Massachusetts- small city yard
Solution: Our first task to achieve their goals was to clear the backyard out of all unwanted materials including dead and unwanted plantings, concrete walls and anything that would be dangerous for children. We had to improve the soil that was completely compressed from prior construction by adding the correct organic matter and minerals necessary according to a soil test conducted.
We included a small patio of pavers for a sitting and entertainment area and surrounded it with
An organic lawn was installed to ensure the safety of the children and their dog providing a wonderful and safe playground area. Also included was a garden for the children to learn and grow. Found in the garden space are perennials, vegetables and herbs to give the children a sensory experience of sight, taste, touch and smell.
In partner with this family, Moodscapes created a backyard family fun area for them to enjoy using their outdoors in a safe and eco-friendly way.
