Patio Design and Decor
It's interesting, I work in a studio filled primarily with Landscape Architects, yet I don't have the first clue about landscape or patio Design. In order to familiarize myself with the materials, plants, and furniture available, I went to my first resource - google. The sites and images are not very comprehensive. I was particularly interested in before and after pictures of bare yards and patios that have been transformed into private oases. There just isn't a wealth of information out there when it comes to landscape and patio design.
I did manage to find a few that I liked above. I really like the idea of creating an outdoor living room as pictured in the images. I think I could manage to design a patio but I still remain clueless when it comes to the foliage part.
