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.

"These areas are a huge part of what Hough Elementary School is all about. They help build self-esteem and a sense of joy. I can't thank Jane Tesner Kleiner enough for all of the work she has done with our Green Team. She has released the control over to the students and will tell you over and over that [the spaces] were created by the Hough kids....The Hough community is so proud of our Backyard [Fieldtrip] and the opportunities it provides us."
- Steve Vance, Principal
