By H&A correspondent | September 5th 2019

Study the views into and out of the site, slope, soil, the sun and shade patterns, existing vegetation, structures and utility lines.

Note the positive aspects you would like to enhance and problem areas.

As you think about the design, try and find solutions to these problem areas and how you can utilise the positives.
