Don’t Design Yourself into a Corner
Simply Perfect hears lots of our clients say, “I wish I had thought of that earlier.” While we embrace the challenge of any outdoor space, we also encourage you to consider a few things before you create your oasis.
WORK CLOSELY WITH YOUR LANDSCAPER.
Landscape designers bring a wealth of expertise to making backyards beautiful. As you undertake any outdoor landscape project, speak with them about where you see yourself spending most of your time; what your viewpoint or lookout will be; and how your outdoor relaxation space can make the most of the features around you.
THINK AHEAD ON HOW YOU WILL USE THE SPACE.
Outdoor kitchens are extremely popular. One may fit beautifully into that spot you had in mind, but does that provide the best functionality? Will it be too far from where you sit down to eat? Or will using your new stunning setup force you to turn your back toward the yard and beauty you worked so hard to create?
LAYOUT FOR LEISURE. YOUR ENTIRE SPACE SHOULD FLOW. Beginning from where you leave the inside of your home – though your patio, deck or four seasons room — into the backyard and beyond. This is best achieved when you plan your outdoor living space design before building on, landscaping or doing a reconstruction.
