Hmm well it seems nobody is in need of any help right now.
Still I will do another all round sort of post.
It seems obvious but when you are planning to do any sort of magic (yes I prefer to not use the k) outside, not only must you consider your location meets your needs in terms of appropriateness but that you know how to leave it as you found it.
In a lot of worship sites people leave offerings and the like (some more appropriate than others) but if you are in a 'normal' area you really shouldn't. Some spells do ask you to leave your workings there but it is better that you remove them rather than some person/animal picks through it.
You should also be wary of what you use if in natural (i.e. wooded) areas. Some materials can be harmful to the plant life and animal life around. The old adage of 'if in doubt, leave it out' works well in these cases.
You should also ask the land you plan on working on if it is willing to help, to be your conductor. Because it might not be and if it isn't (for many different reasons) at best what you are doing will not work and at worst it will backfire.
Lastly pay attention to the foot traffic. Visit the area (at the time you plan on doing your workings) on a few different occasions to see how busy it is. The last thing you want is to be interrupted by people.
All simple things, but sometimes forgotten by people.
Have a good day,
