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.”
