By turning a sloped plot into a modern play den, a designer created usable family space where none existed before. In this Greenbrae, CA, front yard, the designer placed concrete planters along the sidewalk, and filled them with Firebird phormiums to create friendly screening without totally blocking off the yard. The raised patio is edged with concrete to help level the area and create a flat lawn and distinct spots for the family to dine, entertain, and play.
