I have tried to deliver the requirements of the client in my landscape proposal. The grass area is just outside the patio as per the requirement , also we have the kids play area just besides it. So if someone has to look after them from kitchen they can do so directly without have to step outside. The covered pergola seating overlooks both the play area as well the sports court as suggested. Trees are given on the west side for protection from sun. The veggie garden is given behind the pergola seating.There is a hardscape that separates the house from the landscape. There is two types of paving used : brick and stone paving. Low water desert plants are used as per suggestion.
