When it comes to outdoor living, careful attention to detail is the secret to creating a space that everyone will ooo and awe over. By carefully balancing and blending the various elements you want to include, the results will impress everyone in the family.
Start by establishing clear traffic patterns through the landscape. Hardscaped pathways between outdoor kitchens, sitting areas, gazebos, etc., establish order and tie everything together. Along your pathways, place lighting so that the paths are defined when the sun goes down.
Within your seating areas, be certain to include a variety of seating options. A combination of benches, stools, ottomans, and outdoor recliners will encourage everyone to gather together and relax. Couple this with an outdoor fireplace or a firepit, and you can extend the fun into the evening and well into the fall. Finally, make use of focal points by placing fountains, Koi ponds, statues, and birdbaths beside your seating areas where they can be admired.
