Fall is a great time to start planning your next landscape project. The past summer is still fresh on your mind and it is easy to remember what areas of your yard worked and what parts could use some improvement. For me, a larger outdoor living area for entertaining as well as having a more comfortable area to hang out and watch my kids play would be wonderful. In the planning process, think about how you want to use it; reading, cooking, playing, entertaining, or just relaxing. Here are some of my favorite examples to make your landscape more functional as well as beautiful.
