Look up! Remember that you’re working in a three-dimensional space, especially in the outdoors. Consider covering an open space with a shade structure or awning to create a more user-friendly environment. If you want a “softer” feel, consider growing flowering vines on a lattice or draping a closed ceiling with fabric. The space above your head is an under-utilized asset in outdoor living environments. Utilizing that overhead territory can allow you to wrap your guest in a complete sensory experience.
