A Front Patio

Spent the weekend dreaming rather than doing. Husband & I have decided to make a courtyard/patio area in our front yard. We are in the planning stages. The existing landscape will be modifying to adapt to the final plan. Our backyard is excruciatingly hot in the summer months as is the kitchen so we are hoping to get a break from the heat by adding this entertaining area. I'm thinking that it will be perfect to have dinner there and then sit and enjoy the evening while the children play. These are the elements I am hoping to have in this space.
