YARDart is a family business owned by Sam and Anya Imhoff, and their little nature player, Darcy Imhoff, who are based in Palm Beach on the Gold Coast. YARDart creates locally handcrafted, custom-made kids’ cubbies, chicken coops and dog kennels to keep all the smallest members of the family playing and living in style.
The idea of YARDart was dreamt up by Sam, who is passionate about combining his skills as a qualified carpenter and licensed builder, building designer and artist (@sam_imhoff_artist). Classic icons inspire the design of the YARDart cubbies, coops and kennels. Whether you’re looking for a retro caravan, a fishing boat, an ice cream truck, a surf van, a palace fit for a princess or even a miniature Queenlander to match your home, just chat to Sam to start the process and see your theme transformed into a kids’ cubby, kennel or chicken coop ready to roll into your yard.
Anya Imhoff (nee Perkins), Mrs YARDart, is a qualified early childhood and primary school teacher with a Masters in Education. Throughout her career across two continents, Anya has specialised in outdoor learning and play and now consults with schools and early childhood services in her role as education coordinator for Nature Play QLD.
All YARDart products have been designed and handcrafted to be timeless, investment pieces, using high quality outdoor materials built to last for years to come. Our products are then customised, painted and can be delivered locally ready to be used – no flat packs or DIY involved – whilst being lightweight and easily transportable or moveable from space to space, pending the season.
As a team, our focus is to create quality products that bring the whole family together outside, offering endless opportunities for real play, whilst delivering style, fun and functionality.
