Our use of the land. What activities are we planning to do? Do we want to install a pool or spa? Do our children need space to play? Do we get frequent family and friends? Are we planning to grow a vegetable garden?

The interior-exterior transition. Which door will be accessed most of the time? Is it practical, well located? The layout may include the installation of a French window, the modification of stairs, etc.

The time we can spend on maintenance. If you are passionate about gardening, you can multiply rock gardens and flowerbeds, but if you have little time or interest in it, it is better to plan a development that requires low maintenance, to avoid to take our land in awe. There is a tendency to underestimate the support needed for a garden. For example, a 300 sq. Ft. Vegetable garden or five 15 ft. By 3 ft. Flower beds will require approximately 4 hours of care per week. Also, there will be 4 hours of self-propelled lawn mower every two or three weeks if the land is 6,000 square feet of grass.
