OK. Anything that encourages kids to throw rocks doesn't belong in our courtyard garden. BUT THIS IS SO FUN! Can't we do something like this that doesn't involve stone projectiles?!? We could use a bit of whimsy in the center of this place "where excellence is a way of life."

DIY terrace garden bed. While it’s possible to plant on slopes without using raised beds, water run-off means the soil and plants dry out quickly. Terrace garden beds are the perfect solution and it means flowers and vegetables can be grown in a space that might otherwise be wasted.

Boxwood Beauty the Easy Way--How to get new plantings (Space the cuttings (in clusters of 5 to 7 stems) 12-inches apart. With good care these will begin to form a solid hedge within two year's time.)
Peat Moss, Leaf Moldings, Boxwood Cut, Roots Plants, Stems Cut, Copious Quantiti, Entir Plants, Soil Firm, Cut Moist
Boxwood is very easy to propagate. In the spring, take stem cuttings, 6 inches in length, and remove the lower inch of leaves. For best effect, group five to seven stems together, as pictured, to resemble an entire plant. Plunge this group into soil that has been amended with copious quantities of peat moss or leaf mold. Pack the soil firmly around the stems. Keep the cuttings moist, and you will have new, rooted plants in about six weeks.
Starting boxwood cuttings - In spring, take stem cuttings, 6 inches in length, and remove the lower inch of leaves. Group 5-7 stems together to resemble an entire plant, and plunge them directly into the prepared bed. By “prepared bed,” I mean soil that has been newly-loosened, and amended with leaf mold or compost. Pack the soil firmly around the stems. Keep the cuttings moist, and you will have new, rooted plants in about six week’s time.
Architect and playground builder Ron King is part of a robust movement to bring back more natural play, with environments that serve up some messiness and risk-taking along with exercise.

small backyard hill slide play area | More natural play areas.
Playground design goes natural! Love this.
Natural Playgrounds Company built a slide into a constructed hill at an elementary school as shown here in Glens Falls, N.Y. The embankment slide is safer than tower slides with ladders. Scattered boulders, random dirt steps, rough terrain and varied plantings add to the rich textures and varied experiences on Natural Playgrounds. Great for sloping backyard
natural playground ideas - Google Search
"Natural" Playgrounds: a natural playground, natural playscape, green playground or natural play environment is an area where kids can play with natural elements such as sand, water, wood and living plants. - I think a natural play space (think Last Child in the Woods, Children in Nature Network) over where the old sandbox is would be great. It would be beautiful and get a lot of use.
