Design Tips to Create the Perfect Outdoor Living Space to Suit Your Needs!
1. Determine the size and layout of your space. How much of your yard are you willing to dedicate to your retreat and how many different zones do you want to create?
2. Think about functionality for the space and entertaining. Do you want a small intimate garden setting or a large spacious expanse incorporating a kitchen, water & fire features and gardens?
3. Consider water and or fire elements. The perfect compliment to any backyard paradise and the ultimate in stress relief is to add the serene sounds of falling water or a warm burning fire. Envision yourself entertaining on Saturday night or relaxing in your lounge chair on Sunday morning to the sight and sound of a pond with a waterfall, fountain or crackling fire.
4. Compliment your home’s architectural style. Choose a design scheme that harmonizes with your home and resonates the inside. With an infinite amount of color and texture choices available in plant and stone selections, Kim will surely be able to find the ultimate products to define your space.
5. Privacy – Do you need to shelter your space from neighbors, the sun, wind or noisy distractions?
6. Convenience – Your outdoor room should be easily accessible to the home to help reduce the time of trips back and forth. Especially when cooking is involved.
7. Budget- You can have your dream backyard paradise. However, if the budget does not allow for the entire dream all at once, things can always be done in stages. For example, you would want to get all the hardscape or “foundation” elements put in first. You can always add plants and other aesthetic accessories down the road.
