Incorporating a flower and bush garden into your patio or terrace is a good way to let the natural world help you design you social areas of the landscape. I for one love being surrounded by trees and bushes when I am in someone’s yard. It is a great way to have some cooling air from the hotter summer days, and also a great way to accentuate privacy in the backyard. Many people like to have a fence, whereas others go with lush bushes and plants. I like using both because they both have a place in a good backyard landscape design.
