Enhance sight lines. As your eye travels through a window or doorway into the garden, follow the direct axis. Where does your gaze rest? How does your eye move around the garden when it is framed by an open shutter or a divided windowpane?
Emphasize the importance of these perspectives by displaying furniture, plants or ornamentation to create a well-defined scene. While it may be minor in the grand scheme of your landscape, that little stage outside your window is a valuable piece of real estate in the garden.
With this strategy, it's possible (and desirable) that each room of your home will offer those inside a beautiful vignette to observe.
