Interesting idea for putting a play area on asphalt, concrete or hard soil in a temporary build.  The tires and rocks can be removed, and the sand and rocks swept up.  Interesting idea for day cares in urban settings without access to grass or soil.

Geum triflorum (Prairie Smoke) is one of the most stunning and longest lasting prairie perennials, with unmistakable feathery silver and pink seedheads in mid-spring. It is a soft, hairy plant growing typically to 16" tall with fern-like leaves. It prefers full sun and average to dry soil. It is drought tolerant once established, grows in sand, gravel and rock gardens. It spreads by rhizomes and can be naturalized to form an interesting ground cover.

Slugs & Snails Repel with strong scented plants like lavender & rosemary. Partly bury small containers so top of container is level with soil. Fill with beer at dusk. Slugs will be attracted by beer & drown. Empty in the morning & repeat. Use sand or gravel around the garden. Slugs can't move around without a moist surface. Caffeine kills them. Spread used grounds around plant's base or saturate with leftover coffee. 50/50 Ammonia & H2O & Squirted on them kills them

I love the idea of leaving some soil against the house underneath the upper deck so I can plant hostas in the shade!! The hammock's nice, too. :)
