How To / December 24,2013
The great outdoors in Australia has become incredibly comfortable, and it's now possible to turn your backyard into a private haven. With the right focus and planning, your outdoor area can become a natural extension of your home. Planning is very important, because the area needs to be visible, attractive and accessible. Remember that an outdoor area can add value to your home, and plan accordingly to maximise this.

Outdoor furniture can now be very stylish, but it needs to be able to withstand the different Australian weather seasons.

Adding a water feature will also bring some activity and diversity into your backyard, and can act as a focal point.
