Garden landscaping ideas are always handy when planning garden designs. Be it a flower garden, herb garden or even a water garden, there are some basic principals you should follow.
What would you do to create your perfect garden? What things do you like? Do you fancy the idea of a cottage garden style or would you prefer a clean-cut modern style? Regardless, the best garden designs come from those who project their personality into their landscaping ideas.
The most important thing to learn is how to utilise the space that you have. Many small town gardens have some truly stunning designs. In fact, in my town, there is an annual ‘secret gardens’ day where local people open up their gardens for anyone to come and take a peak. There is also a prize for the best three at the end of the day.
Gardening is an art form. I am not an artist but there is nothing more special than looking out of my window and see my work in all its glory. Colour is a matter of personal choice but in my design, I have opted for a just a small amount of colour as I prefer a modern look with gravel, potted plants, and of course my important herb garden.
When planning your garden design, start by writing a list of all the things you like. Are you one for barbeques? Do you like to cook with fresh herbs? Do you need a low maintenance option? Do you prefer dainty flowers or clean-cut modern lines with an organised look? If you have a family with young children you will obviously need to keep your garden design practical and allow somewhere for them to play.
After doing this, split your garden into at least two sections to incorporate all of your ideas. Just to note here, a good way of joining different sections of your garden seamlessly is with a pergola. They can usually be constructed by a competent D.I.Y’er, and a great look can be achieved at a reasonable price.
