A family garden makeover( Anne Cusack / Los Angeles Times )

For proof that parenthood does change everything, just look at the Mar Vista garden of landscape designer Elizabeth Low. The birth of daughter Violet, now 2, inspired her to consider the question: How would the arrival of a child change the landscape. Here's a peek at Low's garden transformation and how the outdoor areas now serve as an extension of the 900-square-foot house.

The girl's father, David Cash, is in the background, by the fire pit.
