What Elements Should I Consider? 


Landscaping ideas always start with some good research. Some people take inspiration from visiting garden centres and others prefer to look for inspiration in the cover of magazines. It is important to take into account your garden size and what you want to use your garden for. You can then sketch out some of your ideas or make mood boards. 

Some of the elements you may want to consider are: 

  • Walls & Boundaries
  • Hedges & Fences
  • Paths & Patios 
  • Lawns
  • Water Features
  • Dining Area
  • Plants 
  • Lighting

Location, Location, Location


Before you make any major choices, you should consider where the sun sets and rises and wind patterns at different times of the year. These choices are important when choosing a patio location for example as in the Summer we know you will want to enjoy the sun as much as possible.


Soil Testing 


One of the essentials when landscaping your garden is soil testing. Many people overlook this important step of the process yet it does have a significant impact on the plants and how they will grow later on. Test your soil beforehand, as this will allow you to know it’s current condition and what needs to be applied for your type of garden.


Edge Your Garden


Creating a natural edge to your garden helps give your garden landscape a structured and more appealing look. A natural garden edge is easy to maintain and provides flexibility to change the scenery should you want to later down the line.


Gardening Tools


It is important that you have some high quality gardening supplies, this will make sure you get the best out of every job you decide to do. You know what they say, “ The best investment is in the tools of one’s own trade.” 


Seating Arrangements 


Adding some additional seating to your garden will open up your outdoor space to a world of possibilities such as dining, reading, sunbathing or even a BBQ with friends in the warmer months. The opportunities are endless.
