Do...
  • Carry indoor design techniques to your outdoor project.
  • Install some manner of outdoor shelter—even the cheapest will serve you for several seasons.
  • Envision your outdoor space as a series of comfortable and functional zones.
  • Make the most of possibilities like fire and water that are rarely possible indoors.


Don't...
  • Treat your outdoor space as inherently less comfortable than your indoor spaces.
  • Think that a lack of temperate weather year-round means it's not worth designing a wonderful outdoor space.
  • Underestimate flower gardens as anything less than the most satisfying décor there is.
  • Think an urban outdoor space is not worth decorating.
