Balance September 05 2013, 0 Comments

When planning your outdoor living space, take into consideration balance.  Google defines this as a condition in which different  elements are equal or in the correct proportions.  
Balance the spaces on themselves, balance the materials used and balance the textures that play a role in creating
 the space. We try to make sure to have a balance of wood, stone, metal, water, fire and the living plant palette in every project we plan. Textures help define a well planned project. For instance, if you have a grove of a heavy, evergreen plant material, try to use a fine, flowing plant material nearby to play off of. Do not confuse this conversation with symmetry though, symmetry and asymmetry are different conversations altogether. Keeping this thought process in mind while developing your property for your specific needs, the space is bound to look and feel incredible.
