Creating Landscape That Children Love

Creating Landscape That Children Love – When you are planning a re-design of your garden landscape, it is important to take into consideration the needs of your children.

Contemporary Garden Style

Contemporary Garden Style

Contemporary Garden Style – Garden design in the twentieth century has become both a profession and an energetic contributor to the development of modern ideas about space and form. The term ‘contemporary garden style’ rather defies definition, but it is useful for drawing together the many different strands in garden design thinking, from the Bauhaus in the 1920s to the present day.

Six people can dine in reasonable comfort in a room measuring 3 x 3.5 m, but a patio of that size would seem crowded with only four people sitting around the table.

As a rule of thumb, whatever shape your patio may be – you’re not confined to rectangles – its smallest dimension should not be less than 3 m, allowing for encroachment on the space by foliage.
