Thanks so much for this post about focal points. For me personally, I think that I struggle sometimes with the idea that there needs to be a solid focal point, and not just multiple eye catchers here and there that are somewhat pointless. We remodeled our home and yard last year, and we found a great landscape design calgary company that helped us find great prices on all the supplies that we needed. There were lots of different little things that added up so quickly, and we were really happy that we were able to find such great prices.
