When I won a room make-over two years ago, I also felt blessed to have known some interesting tips on landscaping. The landscape architects renovated our lanai and they shared some ways to make a semi-indoor lanai more ventilated.
Since we have a tropical climate, just like Arizona, where being under the sun for several minutes would leave your skin scorched and tanned, I believe applying those tips would make our stay in our gardens more enjoyable. Putting plants that require less sunlight and water fountains are just some of their suggestions.
The landscape architects were just so good that I could have jokingly suggested them landscaping for Arizona! With the raves my lanai got, I wouldn’t be surprised when they go places!
