  • Pick out a theme

There are plenty of ideas to   choose from.  You could decide to go oriental with a Zen garden theme or keep it fun and exotic with a Mediterranean look.  You could also decide to mix it up and come up with your own unique theme which suits your particular preference.

The most inviting outdoors spaces consist of a combination of open spaces and landscaped areas.  The spaciousness is required to ensure there is a natural feel and a flow of air. You should incorporate some open air living spaces such as decks and patios which are form and function.
