What a great article! I see many clients that are looking at new construction for the first time and this will definitely help them...I especially like the suggestion of imagining yourself walking through the house. I usually suggest to start from the front door to see what a guest would see and start from the garage enter acne for your everyday view.

It's nice to see people that don't work in the design profession learning basic design principles.

It should be helpful to improve business and communication between designers & clients.

I use climbing roses mixed with clematis and/or hybrid lonicera (honeysuckle, but not the vine in the woods) for a constantly blooming, interesting foliage, brick cover on cedar trellises. Vines soften the harsh look of brick, and add color above the plantings in the ground. Excellent article.

ChickieD ~ Here in Northern California I have wisteria growing in several of my gardens. It is best grown on very strong arbors. Here is a picture of two wisterias growing on very strong and beautiful arbors. I prune these wisteria once a year in the winter. This arbor is strong enough so that I can prune the vine as I work my way along the post and then I am able to walk on the top of the arbor and prune the top of the plant. As you can see with proper pruning wisteria can be stunning. Over the summer it does have a lot of new growth that shoots up into the sky and onto the roof but no damage to the house is done if I prune it hard each year.
