Right now we are starting to plan out our landscaping. So far we've just been collecting images for inspiration, but today I drew out my first sketch. Overall we are fairly certain that we'll be based on a 45º grid, with 2 sizes of concrete squares. We'd like to vary the amount of aggregate between the 2 sizes like the inspiration shot. On the left will be a planter with a bench built into the lip.
The red illustrates existing brick that we'll be working around. I think I need to mock up some 3D illustrations to see what it would really look like...
