What we do
The landscapes around us have a huge impact on our health and well-being. At nature+play designs, we have over 20 years' experience designing landscapes that promote a healthy environment, encourage exploration, add beauty, and support active play.
At nature+play designs, we listen to our clients and their stakeholders. We design spaces to meet unique needs, sites, and budgets (both to build and maintain). We facilitate discussions, develop concepts and sketches, and prepare final plans and construction documents.
We offer workable solutions, whether our clients are fundraising for a volunteer build or budgeting for a contractor. Either way, we design outdoor spaces that blend environmental design (habitat, gardens, stormwater) with learning and play environments.
We are starting our schoolyard EcoBlitz program! Using iNaturalist and a mobile device, you can join your school's search for all species on your campus. All of the schools in the Vancouver Public Schools are loaded and ready to go. Go on an adventure, join your school project and see what you can find! https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/vancouver-public-schools-2020

Here at nature+play designs we are concerned with safety as our first priority. We are happy to meet on-line or at your site with proper safety protocols in place to comply with federal, state and local requirements. Now is the best time to meet outdoors in the fresh air to share ideas about how to safely connect to nature.
