An inconspicuous side yard becomes a place to be.
The raised bed is made of steel with a built-in bench on two sides. The owner fell for an off-the-shelf water feature. Boulders already on site and moss from the shady front entry found a new home. A few plants were added to the space, but some were simply planted in better places. Now grown-ups want to hang out near the play house, perhaps drinking a spot of make believe tea.
