This full-color design guide features outdoor living space photos, ideas, tips and hints to give you a starting point in planning your new outdoor space and to make your backyard the best it can be. It takes you on a guided tour of where to begin when planning the backyard you have always dreamed of.

The first step begins with functionality and helps you determine exactly what you want to do in your outdoor space. For example, within the patio and hardscape portion you will be asked to answer questions including whether you want to dine, entertain, garden or just relax in your outdoor space. As you answer the questions it will lead you through ways to incorporate nature into your outdoor space because after all that is what makes these spaces so special. Do you want sunshine streaming in? Or maybe an outdoor space free of insects? Perhaps you have one of the incredible ocean views Nova Scotia is famous for that you’d like to enjoy.

Enjoy the beauty nature offers.

The view from within your outdoor space is of utmost importance and Archadeck has made this a point of focus in our design guide. This guide also aids in deciding where to place your outdoor space by taking into consideration issues like the direction your backyard faces and your lot and soil conditions.

A well planned outdoor space can complement not only your home’s exterior but the interior as well. With this in mind we show you how to plan a structure that allows for easy transition from interior spaces into your outdoor space.

This wonderful tool puts you in the driver’s seat; putting you in a better position to meet with your Archadeck Design consultant by having a better idea of the outdoor space that suits your wants and needs.
