I am still itching to get out and do some gardening but my fence and deck have yet to be built (any day now). So I am getting my fix through beautiful photos such as these…
I have SO got the itch to do some landscaping to my miniscule property. I have someone coming in a week or so to finish my fence and build a new deck in the backyard. As a result, I am always looking for ideas for outdoor spaces. I love modern landscapes, and Andy Sturgeon’s website was very inspirational. “Andy Sturgeon Garden Design has emerged as a leading design practice earning a reputation for creating stylish modern gardens that are a fusion of contemporary design and natural materials. Planting often features heavily and ranges from striking architectural schemes through to soft, naturalistic styles. Lighting, sculpture and furniture are frequently integral to the design.”
As the weather warms up for most of you it’s time to take another look at using outdoor spaces. Where I live in sunny subtropical Queensland we use our outdoor rooms all year round. Even in the southern parts of Australia there is only a brief period of the year where we don’t live outside. The fresh air beckons. And if you don’t have a permanent space to dine, laze and while away the day then a rug some pillows a garden set or hammock can extend your living space.
Whether it’s a patio or a courtyard, a veranda or a cabana, a balcony or deck, a loggia or just a patch of grass extend your living area outside. Go alfresco with these ideas and reclaim that porch.
