1. Define your viewing area/location early-on and take a compass with you, ‘think shade and light’ – Where will the summer sun be? Where does it rise and set? (Remember – rise in the east and set in the west!)
  2. Be open minded to what you can do with the space.
  3. Concentrate on location (you can change pretty much – everything else.)
  4. Pre-determine what you can live with, and what you cannot live without, perhaps try scoring elements out of 10 – if you get to ‘6 out of 10’, you are probably onto a winner.
