OUR APPROACH TO DESIGING YOUR EXTERIOR
1. Plan of Small Architecture:
– Gazebo or Pergola: We create a charming focal point or a shaded retreat with a well-designed gazebo or pergola.
– Arbors and Trellises: Integrate these elements to add vertical interest and support climbing plants, enhancing the overall aesthetics.
– Pathways: Plan picturesque walkways that guide visitors through the garden, utilizing materials like stone, gravel, or pavers for a personalized touch.
– Decorative Fencing: Define your outdoor space with aesthetically pleasing fences that complement the overall design.
2. Zoning Plan:
– Functional Zones: We divide the outdoor area into functional zones such as dining, lounging, and entertainment spaces.
– Planting Zones: Strategically plan green areas, flower beds, and shrubbery to add texture and color.
– Privacy Screening: Incorporate natural elements like hedges or decorative screens to create secluded areas within the space.
3. Exterior Furniture:
– Comfortable Seating: We choose outdoor furniture that combines style and comfort for the perfect lounging or dining experience.
– Weather-Resistant Materials: Opt for furniture made from materials like teak, aluminum, or weather-treated wicker to withstand outdoor conditions.
