Tips On Selecting Garden Features:
The size of your garden area should be taken into account when selecting a feature or focal point. Privacy screens, vertical gardens and water wall features are great if you’re limited for space, especially if you have a courtyard home. With larger blocks, having a plan is a good place to start so one area leads into the next, allowing the eye to discover new and interesting features as you walk around. For those Adelaide residents that like living and entertaining outdoors, spa areas, fire pits and pizza ovens make for practical garden features that can be set up to be enjoyed all year round and even at night!
