Q: My family recently moved into a brand-new house with a "blank canvas" for a yard. It is exciting to be landscaping from scratch, but also a little daunting. We have an eight-month old son, and I really want to create a space that will invite natural play, exploration, and movement opportunities as he grows. It is a fairly large yard, so space is not an issue. We are also lucky to have playgrounds in the neighborhood, so we don't feel any need for commercially-bought play equipment. I'm thinking rocks, logs, sand, plants - but I need ideas for how to make it all come together! Does anyone have any ideas, links, articles, or pictures to share? Thank you!
