An active family with teenaged boys and a young daughter have a huge lot that looks more like an abandoned field than their own yard. They ask Chris and his team to create a backyard that fits their active lifestyle, yet is easy to maintain. Chris transforms the yard into a sports complex for the children. He creates a croquet lawn and batting cage for the boys, a koi pond with lilies for the daughter and and outdoor eating area for the entire family. And once the kids are tired of playing, there is a giant fire pit with seating where everyone can relax and roast marshmallows. A wildflower bed and other natural plantings ensure the family will have a beautiful, useful space that requires little upkeep.
