When you decide to entertain at your house more, there are several improvements that you can make to your backyard that will be great values into the future.

The existing garden may have evolved without any guiding plan, but often it incorporates features and elements that it would be a pity to lose. These article shows how an existing garden can be modified, by pulling together the best elements into a coherent and satisfactory whole.
The modified garden in its original form is typical of many; it also serves to illustrate the drawbacks of a dog-leg shape, where one area is set at right-angles to the main space.
