Your garden may at times feel like a never ending treadmill of repair and maintenance. Keeping up with trends and tending to your many bushes and plants, ensuring that your garden not only looks great but perfectly encapsulates the theme or look you want your outdoor space to have. And making it kid friendly. And making space for the dog. That’s a lot to consider and a lot to take into account when you redesign your garden, so taking this into consideration it’s probably best if you start with the larger, more important aspects of your garden and work downwards.
Spacing and layout
The first consideration is whereabouts everything your including in your design will actually be placed and how this will have knock on space concerns for everything else. Take into account any points of elevation or topographical importance. Also knowing where things are going to be placed before you do so will save you so much time in to-ing and fro-ing about where to actually place things on the day. Try sketching out a rough guide of what you want to do, sketch out a rough outline of your yard and the fill in everything you want and make a not of where hills and other points of interest or caution are located.
The amount of sunlight that your yard receives will directly influence where you can place certain items and plants, to put it in layman’s terms, each area of your garden dependent on the conditions and what is planted there will create something called a micro climate. These microclimates are what fuel healthy growth, for example, a plant that requires only sun in the evening and shade during the day is unsuitable to be placed next to a plant that must have as much consistent sunlight as possible, as one would suffer. In general microclimates are split into 4 categories, full sun, partial shade, shade, or deep shade. And your plants must be placed by their suitability to these areas of your garden. \
One of things that are expected in general is a luscious flowing lawn. After all what’s more satisfying than a nice cool green space to compliment your garden and generally what will leave the biggest impression to visitors. It’s all very well and good to put extraordinary amounts of efforts into your roses and the other supporting plants, but if your lawn is patchy, dry and altogether not well kempt, it will seriously impact the overall aesthetic appeal of your garden. And that’s no good is it? Seriously consider a great looking, low maintenance lawn solution, such as natural turfing, to easily realize your dream garden.
