If you have planned to build a backyard cottage you need to decide the style of it. Its appearance should respond to the architecture of your house. Carefully think where and how to place the structure so that you would get the best use of it. The garden path which will lead you to your cottage is also of great importance as it is an essential element of the landscape. The choice of plants must reflect the style of the cottage – if you wanted a romantic effect, it is advisable to choose blooming flowers in soft pastel shades. If you wanted a more contemporary vision, arrange flower beds in geometry shapes. The right furniture is another thing to consider.
