WHAT IS A PLAYSCAPE?
The idea for residential playscapes was inspired by the guilt that our family felt when selling our backyard swing set to plant a garden. A playscape garden features natural play elements nestled among plants that are selected for your growing conditions and landscape style. The space is designed with the entire family in mind as a place to escape to, learn from, and grow with.
Both children and adults today are spending more time than ever inside and behind screens. A playscape allows for the experiential outdoor play that many of us associate with our childhood. Most of our designs use custom natural play elements that encourage risk taking, which has recently been linked to increased health, mobility, and resilience. We believe that outdoor play, especially if intergenerational, is one of the most important forms of informal learning.
