LOCATION & SURROUNDINGS
At the beginning when designing an outdoor space take into consideration anything in the plans that may influence decisions on materials, location, and the time-frame as well as that of the sub-contractors.
Is the new space to be part of an existing outdoor space or, perhaps, an extension of an existing indoor space? Is there a need to add heat or lighting?
Consider any elements that are already in place at the location; such as: trees and shrubbery, gardens, pools or ponds, walls or steps, and, of course, sun and shade.
Ponder anything that might turn out to be a problem or just something that has to be dealt with as you design the space; such as: uneven or sloped surfaces, trees or shrubbery, drainage, buried gas or electrical lines, privacy, sun/shade, or zoning.
And don't forget to consider when you would like to have the space completed.
