In order to start tackling your garden, you need to do a lot of research and planning. This could be anything from creating mood boards on Pinterest or walking around your local garden centre to figure out what kind of style you like. Make sure when doing your research you keep in mind your garden size and shape as well as the direction the garden is facing. This is so you know where to place any furniture for maximum sunlight and know how much space you have available to work with.

Different materials will give a different feel to your garden. If you want a clean and sleek look for your garden, maybe marble would be a good material for you. Or if you want a more rustic look, perhaps wood is a better option. Whatever you are looking for, there are many materials available at your local garden store or building merchants.

DIY Garden Landscaping

Depending on how complex your garden design is, it can be fairly easy to do it yourself. There are endless amounts of guides, books and video tutorials which can help you out and all of the common materials you will need can most commonly be found in building merchants or garden centres. Depending on what you want to be done to your garden, machinery may need to be hired too, whether it is a cement mixer or a digger. Some people may not feel comfortable using these and in that case, maybe hiring a professional would be a better option but for the most part, if your design is simple, you can usually do it yourself.

Professional Landscaping

Obviously, hiring a professional to landscape your garden is going to be more expensive than doing it yourself, however, they have the knowledge and experience which you may lack. Hiring a professional can be a great idea if you need to use machinery or need to install water or electrical features, they will know how to carry out these tasks, safely and efficiently.

Should I Add Plants?

Whether you are wanting that sleek design or the more rustic look, plants are something that will bring your garden together. This can be anything from trees, shrubs or flowers and each kind can add a different element to your garden. To add structure, larger things like trees or hedges can be added or for colour add an array of flowers. If you plant the flowers in pots it allows you to change up the design whenever you want.
