If you have been following, you are up to making your lists and diagrams to address all the different conditions and needs before you start your new project. This is a great wintertime activity. You are not distracted by what is growing and it is easier to see with your photos that which does not work in the way that you would like. You may not be doing a complete makeover, but the principles still apply.
Our next design task is where it starts getting fun. We actually start pulling a design together by identifying the needs and desires from all of our analysis; then melding the information into a cohesive design. As I showed above by jumping ahead a little, you will see the parts start to make sense with Schematic Design. Like it sounds, the ideas start to generate and design starts to gel.
