This is a really fun yard that the whole family can enjoy. In addition to that, the parents can have their friends over and hang out on the deck and grill while the kids run around in the yard and play. When designing a yard, this is something you want to think about. I mean, you might not want for your yard to be a huge social area, but if you have kids and want to be able to share time with their friends and parents, then a yard design like this is ideal. The only thing I might do different is dispense with the paved area and make it all grass.
