Help needed with a focal point please

Can anyone help with interesting ideas for my garden please. It’s pretty bland at the moment and needs a focal point, but where?

    Consider where the windows and doors are to help determine where a feature could be placed, but I'd suggest straight out from the step towards the end of the lawn (especially if there are glass doors behind this step). Perhaps a feature tree with under planting or a secondary seating area under a pergola. It is quite a distance from the deck/house so would need to be relatively large.

    Thank you for that. Pergola sounds interesting and yes there are three lots of room opening behind the steps.

    You could do something quite cost effective (just a simple chip area, bench seat and pergola with climbers) or more elaborate like a deck. Here are some ideas :)

    One square rate, thank you so much. I really like the pergola set up in the first photo!
