Garden Design Tips
When designing a garden, you need to consider a few things. Here are a few that we think are important.
Typically, a garden owner will think about the plants they want in their garden and what furniture they think will look best. In contrast, a garden designer will see the bigger picture first and want to know the function and structure. To do this, a designer will ask things like, what do you want to use this space for.
Garden designers will also look at the colours of walls, fencing and trellis and recommend dark colours. This is because light colours, like white and cream, make things look closer. In contrast, darker colours make fences look less noticeable as it recedes into the background.
Another great tip is to plant close to the house. This is because it helps to create a feeling of bringing the outdoors in.
