Landscape Planning

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 45ยบ 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...

I think it looks very cool. Ours needs some work too.

I like the difference in sizes between the standard concrete and the concrete with extra aggregate.

Good luck. I can't wait to see the finished product!!

Browsing through your blog has been very interesting. It makes me realize that I have plenty of time to think about what is next for mine. I am in the same boat with you in needing landscaping ideas for my Cliff May.
