Find an idea or image they like 2. Choose a garden area they think they should go to 3. Try to copy and paste the image into the space 4. Repeat another activity /Features/Ideas or images They ended up with a garden full of independent spaces. There is no connection or relationship between each activity or space. In fact, people usually don’t go that far. They started to build or develop that space. That would be too difficult or too boring. o, they left a series of unfinished ideas or spaces. A few years later, they repeated the process again, treating each space as a separate project. We want to do the opposite. Using this unpacking technique, you will develop a flexible list of criteria for each event, function or other space. These standards are critical to your overall design. They: • are more flexible than copying and pasting from an image • allow you to collect ideas from many different sources of inspiration • let you know when you “successfully” design an area • can adapt to changes in your situation-funds, materials, other Expert adjustments You will adjust and change the standards of activities or functions many times. Every change is an opportunity to perfect what you want in your design and backyard. This step in the design guide is accompanied by an additional video series-the Idea Generator Guide.
