This yard is designed so well. I want to copy and paste it into my own outdoor space, or at least remember some of the "why's?" behind certain parts.
I think that large grassy areas are needed for play, but they don't need to take up in the entire yard. I actually love the idea of breaking a yard up into separate mini-gardens/outside areas. A tree-lined path would be plenty of fun to run around in and would add height and variety.
