    I am planning my scape and would like some opinions of hardscape placement and the general scape direction.

    Please select the 2 most favourable layouts in your opinion.

    And what is the best way to raise hardscape? Is clay bricks fine to use?

    Clay bricks are fine.

    Landscape: about 1/3rd to 3/5ths of the way from the side outwards. Try keep a ratio of 1.67. For some reason that is maximally aesthetic. If you need to hide equipment the best is outside-inwards but again, not symmetrical.

    That is just my opinion, and it is mostly based on the practicality of hiding equipment.

    I tend to work from the right but all depends on the hardscape I got.
