How to Create a Garden Room

Look at existing structural elements: fences, walkway, trellis, secluded spaces

Use a hardscape to define a space

Natural and created changes in elevation can define entrances and exits from garden spaces. Steps up and down can direct the eye and foot

Look up and partially enclose an area

Make a visual pause using a small piece of lawn or ground cover

Enclose the space with a hedge, trees, grass, or borders of lower plants

Use water in your space to add sound and visual structure
