Tips for Better Outdoor Living Spaces
1. Create a Focal Point
Create a focal point by building off an element in the yard (the pool, a pond or water feature, fire-pit, seating area, garden, etc.)
2. Define Space
Good furniture arrangement is all it takes to add a variety of uses in one outdoor living space.
3. Create Visual Direction
Even if your yard is small, it’s always better to create direction to guide people through the space. You can do this with stone or brick walkways, hardscape patterns, or planting shrubs or trees to create corners and borders.
4. Offer Different Seating
Include benches, chairs and stools to let guests enjoy different spaces and areas in the yard.
5. Add Accents
Small accents such as flowers, plants or water features make a space more interesting and appealing.
