TRACKS AND PAVING
So! It is necessary to design the garden so that the places for paving and paths were few.
The large size of the paving not only visually reduces the garden, but also “steals” space for landscaping, and the feeling that you are on a city street and not in your cozy courtyard will create discomfort in the moments of your rest.
It is better that the area for landscaping occupied at least ¾ of the entire site.
