The Lure of the Sheltered Corner in the Landscape

From the garden book, Heaven is a Garden
We all love to sit in a protected corner looking out to a view. This is why people seek out the proverbial “table in the corner” in a restaurant.
It provides the sanctuary that I call, “the lure of a sheltered corner.”

Plan for a sheltered patio corner

This is also true outdoors, in your garden. I write about this in my garden design book, 'Heaven is a Garden'. If you create a rectangular patio and provide an outdoor seating area in a corner backed by bushes, a wall or a slope everyone will want to sit in this cozy spot! And if you provide a view of some sort then it will be even more appealing.

You can create a protected corner next to your house by using the rear wall as one side of the corner and a low hedge as the other side. This combination makes a wonderful niche for a small table and chairs.
