Make the Most of Outdoor Space
Whatever the size or condition of your outdoor backyard or garden, there is plenty of good advice available on how to make a tiny courtyard or a sprawling suburban block look wonderful.
For many homeowners it can be quite intimidating to start with plenty of possibilities on what feels like a blank canvas, and knowing there is a plethora of design options to choose from.
Gardening experts and landscape professionals have suggested that it’s important to decide the use of the outdoor space.
You need to decide what you want to get out of the space, as that will determine the design and features. A garden that’s designed for kids will have a very different look and feel to a resort-style outdoor entertaining area, for example.
Having lots of creative ideas is great, but be practical and draw up a plan of how you want the outdoor space to look and feel like.
Experts advised measuring the area you want to work on and to observe where the sunlight falls noting areas of sun and shade, as this will help you choose what plants can grow where.
This will also help you decide where to place things like chairs and tables.
