Building nature play spaces kids love!
Want your kids excited to play outside?
I can help!
We make playing outside everyday easy, sustainable and accessible by creating backyard spaces that celebrate the natural environment and are irresistible to young explorers.
Hi! I'm Melissa!
I started Garden PlaySpace to help busy families enjoy gardening and the outdoors together. As a mom with two small children, I have experienced first hand the benefits of nature play (for my kids AND me!) and am motivated to help others overcome the hurdles to getting outside.
Connecting to nature with play!
"Melissa incorporated my child and I's ideas to create a fun and functional play area that we will be enjoying for years!"
"My grand kids play independently for hours. They don't even fight! They are so interested in the water and rocks. Melissa did an amazing job making a play space that keeps them busy and having fun."
