Outdoor living space ideas – getting the most out of your space

When most people thing of their outdoor space which is normally their back garden they think of a patio area or decking area and then grass or boarder area for flowers, but there is much more you can do with this space. Today it is much more likely that you may have a conservatory or glass garden room in between you and the outside space. Glass extensions have improved massively over the past 5 years and there are some wonderful designs available which can be used all year around. Glass extensions UK have some great design ideas for you to view online.

Patio areas are also popular and there are some great marble tiles available for your outside living space. Another option for a flat outside space is for a decking area. Decking boards have been around for many years, but because they need regular maintenance may people have now switched to composite decking. Composite decking requires much less maintenance with just a wipe down once or twice a year. You can also now get eco friendly recycled decking which is produced from reclaimed scrap product and put back into the manufacturing process. For further details see Build Deck for further information and advice.

May people also now want their garden space landscaped but where do you start.


The first thing you need to do is choose a focal point for your garden, then you need to make a landscape plan, using paper or many of the drafting software packages available. if you use a professional landscaping company such as Urban Landscapes they can do this for you, however if you have a rough design idea on paper it will help them to work with you to create the perfect design for your needs. At the end of the day you have to live with the design so you must like it.
