Ok well I did try the search function, but the search feature is umm well kinda running as good as many of the forums :)
We added a playset to our yard recently. As with most playsets, it's big, and when the surround is built...heck it will be massive...some 20x25' square if I get that boring.
So here's the thing....I have looked and looked at pictures of surrounds with peagravel etc, and frankly, they're ugly (at least what I've found). I would like to do something more fitting to our garden, which is...ok until the playset went up...was, extensive.
We would also like to add a pergola possibly raised up in the back yard where some of the larger flower beds are...blah blah...
I'm just looking for possible ideas to present to someone (landscape designer/architecht? suggestions also welcome) that we might like. I want safety for the kids, but I don't want a horrific box in the middle of our garden...danged near bigger it feels like!
The shadow in this pic shows where it's basically sitting. This is a winter shot so it's not very pretty:
I want the set to sort of (ya I know it won't) with the house and not scream...I RUN A PRESCHOOL (which I don't because I'm sane):
