    Look Out Over

    "The room looks out over the garden."
    "The room looks over the garden."

    Are look out over and look over different? What does "out" add?

    Re: Look Out Over

    Technically, a room doesn't look over anything. It overlooks the garden. A person standing in the window of that room could look out over the garden.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
