Residence, Cobble Hill

 

What to do with sloping ground in a Brooklyn backyard?   

 

Instead of flat terraces with steps between, we made a small

hill the children could scamper up to sit under a small tree.    

A circular brick patio sitting area is hidden behind.

 

 

Also for the children:  an expansive lawn with a play structure.

 

For the parents:  English Garden formality and some whimsy.
