2 Balanced Layout
The existence of front porch plants is not the same as the existence of plants in the garden. That is, ornamental plants on the terrace are generally complementary elements, not the main element. As a complementary element, the placement of plants must be balanced with other elements. As in the example image above, the plant looks to decorate the terrace between the table and chairs. The layout of the plants is also not exaggerated so that it is pleasing to the eye. Property News
