We're currently looking at our options for our outdoor area. We will be having a pool put in so as you will see from the pic below, things are pretty tight out there in terms of free space.
Our Alfresco is going to be a dining area so we wanted a kind of lounge area as well with some casual seating. I have highlighted the area where we want this to go (the only option really!).
This is a corner block so to the left is a long fence with the verge behind it.
I'm wondering if a pergola in this space is even an option to consider? I'm thinking it would look nice with something growing up it and creating a shaded area. That side is north facing and no neighbors so lots of sun there.
