FUN AND GAMES
In what appears to be a reaction to concerns over childhood activity levels, backyard games are back in vogue.
Director of Landart Landscapes Matt Leacy says space for cricket and soccer are perennial favourites for backyard play, with some clients prepared to go to greater lengths than others to create the ideal environment at home.
“Some take it as seriously as choosing couch lawn and mowing a pitch into it,” Matt says. “This comes with higher maintenance, so I’d only recommend it for those with time or the budget for good regular lawn maintenance.”
