Would a concrete paver patio look odd here?
This is my first time in the Landscape Design area of GardenWeb. Since a back patio right now requires interior renovation, I have decided that I would do a front patio where my flower bed is right now.
My thought is a semicircle that starts where the mailbox is goes around the bay window, continuing into a rectangular area that stops where the large shrub is to the left of the house. The mailbox will be moved, and I will also do some repainting of shutters etc. I was also thinking of adding a few plants at certain spots on the perimeter of the patio for some privacy. Does that seem visually appealing? Does it make sense, or is it a bad idea? Does anyone have any other ideas that may make more sense than the one I have. We do not have an outdoor seating area, and I would really like one, but I also want it to look nice. Any and all suggestions, thoughts or ideas will be appreciated.
I have gotten a few good ideas from the home decorating forum on GW and I thought that the folks in here may also have some good ideas.
