I love the firepit and how it turns into seating/table. What a brilliant idea. And my kids would love that climbing wall.

This patio is amazing - so much to take away in terms of ideas for our front yard patio/yard restructuring. Like Braitman, we are curious about the water feature - is it gunnite or liner? We're putting one in ourselves and plan to go with liner, though would prefer clean gunnite. Same question about pump and filter too.

Love the cable railing! Can you provide a source for it? We are in the market for something similar.

I would say this is a variety of Aeonium, probably a hybrid of A. canariense. :)

Pet friendly backyards should have plenty of space to run around, but should also have areas that dogs will not destroy prize winning rose bushes! If you have large animals, consider having a fenced in area, and a 'roam free area'.

Family friendly areas should include a lot of green space, and children's play areas should have soft ground cover such as rubber chips, mulch, or even recycle tire chips. Trees and shaded landscaped areas are also necessary for shade. Hardscape areas such as sidewalks and patios are great for tricycles and playing hop scotch!

I completely agree with Ronique. Also, do some research on plants. Don't plant any poisons plants. Some plants bare berries that are poisonous when ingested by animal. It may not effect human, but animal tend to be more susceptible.
