Designing an Outdoor Living Space
Designing an outdoor living space is very much like designing a room in your house. You have to consider the size and how you want to use the room. Then you consider the creative elements of color, texture, and fabrics.
Additionally, a successfully designed room creates the desired feelings and emotions. The outdoor room also creates a feeling. It might be a shaded nook with a water feature that feels relaxing. Or it could be an area by a pool that feels like a fun place to grill out.
Taking a Cue from Interior Design
The professional landscapers at Landscape Innovations follow a similar process when designing an outdoor living space. First, they consider the size of the area. They consider when and how the area will be used. They take into account the existing elements and architecture adjacent to the space. Then they ask if you want a cozy space with defined edges or a larger, more open space.
Finally, after consulting with the client, they determine the elements that will provide the feeling the owner wants to achieve. This can be accomplished with plant selection, fountains, fireplaces, lighting, sunlight, shade, sound, and scent.
