Have you ever walked into a room and you’re immediately overcome with a particular feeling? We’ve all experienced it at one time or another, but what causes this instantaneous change in how you feel? Your surroundings are usually the number one influencer as to how you feel at any given moment.

With the right landscape architect, your backyard really can bring out the best in you! So, which one are you?
