Most interior designers will push for a focal point to highlight a particular room. However, what about the outdoors?
Providing a focal point to your landscaping can provide your property with a more coordinated and unified look while capturing and directing your guest’s view.
In this issue, the professional San Diego landscape designers with Juniper Landscape will talk about the importance of a focal point in your landscaping, and provide a few examples of items that can be re-purposed to fit the role.

With the use of a focal point, you are guiding the perspective of a viewer to a particular location of your choosing.
For example, you can use a plant, object or container to smoothly direct attention either to an area of your yard you’d like to showcase or away from items you’d like to hide.
The main reasons for a focal point are to (1) direct the viewer’s attention and (2) provide your yard with a sense of order.
The choices for focal points are literally limited to only your imagination.
We’ve talked before about obvious choices, such as gardens, pergolas, and fire and water features. Other good ideas are decks and patios, sheds, outdoor kitchens, or a refurbished piece of furniture.
