When it comes to designing your backyard, you should think of having separate spaces as you would in your home. Think of what activities you would like do ahead of time, then design your yard accordingly. For example, you might have on area for cooking, one for seated dining, one for sitting around an outdoor fireplace/firepit, one for lounging with a book or soaking in the sun and one for enjoying the variety of plants in your garden. You may even have a separate area for a vegetable garden or for the kids to play. Every family’s needs are different, so working with a designer who specializes in unique and individualized designs is important.
