What Houzz contributors are saying:

Alex Jewett: Godden Sudik Architects added this to Climate Control: Work With Nature's Elements for the Best Outdoor Space
WaterWater is one of the most interesting elements in a landscape design. While water gives us life, it can also be one of the most destructive elements. We all know that we need water to keep our gardens alive, but we must also make sure that the same water does not destroy our outdoor spaces. If you have an impervious surface, such as concrete or brick pavers, allow for water to run off in a controlled manner. You should have around a 1/4-inch slope toward an area of permeable material, such as a yard, planting bed or mulched area.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Site Plan
Site plans remind us that the design of a house doesn't stop at the outside walls. How the interior rooms relate to the exterior "rooms" is as important as anything that goes on inside.
