If you really want somewhere for the children to play and the dogs to run around perhaps a new lawn made up of a tough type of grass is the way forward. I would get advice about proper drainage for the lawn too.Hard landscaping could be incorporated into your design so you have somewhere to put a garden seat. Plants in pots are less likely to be dug up by dogs or trampled on by children. I will be interested in ideas from others and hope you get many replies. Good luck!
