7 steps guide

6 Identify the

site conditions A successful landscape is one that fits the features of your property. For example, a pool should be located in the sun where it’s easier to heat, more comfortable for bathers, and more appealing for tanning after a swim. If you want to build a pavilion or a pergola to prolong your time spent outside, you will want to consider the sun’s orientation and the direction of the prevailing winds. There’s a lot to think about—so it’s a good idea to make a list.
