There are several types of transition spaces. The first would be the porch or veranda. Here the veranda unites both indoors and out, creating a continuous living space.
My veranda outfitted for a long hot summer of outdoor living. (above & below)
Below, the sweeping lawn and the trees on either side anchor the house to the landscape, strengthening the relationship between architecture and site.
Other transition spaces that create interest in the garden are pergolas, trellised walkways or arbors.
Here one passes through a dark shaded area into a pool of sunlight.
The above arbor was created using only plants. No Money? No excuse!
