"Matthews celebrates the antithesis of the look-but-don't-touch, no-kids-allowed landscapes . . . [She] carefully walks even the most tool-challenged adult through more than 35 dynamic projects, depicted in eye-popping photographs."

—Library Journal

"You can play in the yard, but don't go near the garden!" That's a familiar parental refrain, but gardens can be great getaways for kids. With the colorfully illustrated, simple projects in these pages, even the smallest lawn can become a children's paradise. Without compromising on safety, your pocketbook, or the garden's finished look, you can build brilliant hideaways such as flower teepees and washing line tents or construct innovative play structures including mind-boggling mazes and climbing walls. Children will blossom in these landscapes that inspire imaginative play, provide physical challenges, and nurture an interest in nature.
