The Sky Plane

Once you've established the ground and vertical garden planes, think about how you can add sparkle to the ceiling.

In most cases your garden room will simply open to the sky. Though, if you'd like more enclosure to provide shade, shelter or added comfort think about how a third plane above can provide that special touch.

Some typical sky planes include tree canopies, arbors, pergolas, tents, and umbrellas.

How can you add extra touches to these ceilings? Think about dangling lights, weaving fabric through wood structures, and criss-crossing brightly colored banners.
