Great ideas for your own out­door ar­eas from our gar­den guru Dale Vine.

OUT­DOOR STRUC­TURES such as pergolas or pa­tios can form an area for peo­ple to gather while en­joy­ing the views of out­door ar­eas. Built with the right shape, ma­te­ri­als and scale, th­ese struc­tures can be­come a thing of beauty in the gar­den. WA­TER USED AS A FEA­TURE in gar­den de­sign is not only re­stricted to pools and ponds. Done well, wa­ter can be­come the hero, and in­stead of play­ing a sec­ondary fea­ture in an out­door space it can rep­re­sent what the area was de­signed around. Move­ment brings wa­ter to life, like this slow-spin­ning wheel.
