Ideas for this area

dmcdorman(5)April 10, 2012

This is an area I've wanted to work on for some time. That pole in the middle has live power running to it so I'd like to utilize a fountain or small water feature (pond or something of the like that is appropriate for this area).

I've thought about doing some kind of patio with seating, a water element (or something using the power) and a firepit type area.

Also if possible I wouldn't making beds or something around the two trees to add some needed horticulture color.

The power line can be dug up and moved about anywhere between the trees. Also the area is roughly 20 feet between trees.

Picture is taken from my deck looking down, about 10-15 feet from the trees.

Thanks for all ideas!

I kind of like the idea of a circular patio/seating area with the fire pit and then circular beds coming of that - LOL my ultimate thought would be that from your upper level, it would look like a flower.....LOL I think because you want to do the beds around the trees no matter what you do, you'd be best off making it symmetrical (or opposite) in terms of shape....
