[linux-lvm] partition strategy

This is my first post, so please bear with me.
I have 2 free disk areas 230G and 231G. I hoping to take advantage of
Is it better to create 3 partitions 2 x230G + 1G - create a striped LV
over the first 2, then add the third to the volume group, then extend
the LV over to the new 1G extension (since LVM2 allows extending striped
lv-s). And if so, does the non-striped area get used as a last resort
(after the striped area is completely full)?
Is it better to create 2 paritions 230G and 231G, put both in a vg,
create a striped lv and lvm will take care of striping to the 230G mark,
then writing linearly afterwards.
TIA for any advice.
