Tuesday’s Simple Design Thought


An important factor when creating your outdoor areas is determining what eventually is destined to take place in that space. Think of your landscape as your own piece of artwork. It fits your style and your taste. As we all know, art can be personal and bad all in one fell swoop. Keep in mind some design rules still should be followed. Here’s one from the archives to assist you with laying out basic pathways. Take a peek – it gives some basic measurements and design tips about where we walk and why. 

So if today’s post is meant to be simple, best to wrap up this Tuesday design thought now. A quote from Viggo Mortensen gives us another perspective on how to define art. “You don't have to make something that people call art. Living is an artistic activity.” Simply put, never overlook what works best for you to move, play and live in your designed outdoor space. In my book, your landscape should always have life and movement. Otherwise, it is simply just art work and not outdoor living.
