Garden Design

Eventhough this web-site is about home remodeling, Landscaping is a topic that you would have to deal with anyway. Garden design is something you will be returning to over and over again. It does not matter what season it is, you can practically start thinking about garden design at any time.

Your Garden is one of the first things that your guests will pay attention to when they visit your house. You can create the garden design in a way that will match to your house; you can go with the unique garden design or choose garden design from the most popular one. You can actually create a garden design that will help you to hide the spots of your existing house you would like to hide.

However, before you will make a chose of the garden design style, you should really study the weather and climate of the area you live in. Not all garden design styles will be possible to have in all areas. Our advice is to consult with professionals. This will save your time and might give you additional assurance that the choice of your garden design is a workable one.

After you’ll get answers on your questions as to the climate and, therefore, the type of plants you can have in your garden, you can start choosing the garden design style. Remember, garden design style is not something permanent; you can always change it in the future. You can also try different garden design styles in different parts of your garden and then stay with one you’d like the most. There is no right or wrong garden design style. It is your choice, your time, your work and your money. Even plants that are growing perfectly well in your neighbour's house might not grow well in yours and vice versa. Garden design is very personal. You can get some advices, but the final choice will be yours.

  1. Below are some basic gardening tips to get you started on creating your dream garden

    Gardening Tip 1. Consider your plants health as well as your own. Ensure you keep yourself well hydrated whilst gardening. As most gardening is done in the sun, involves physical labour and is very engrossing, it is easy to work away for hours on end without noticing the time flying by. Keep drinking lots of fluids and make sure you are wearing adequate sun cream and a hat. Your garden will only suffer if you are in bed for a few days with dehydration or sun stroke. Remember, skin cancer is still one of the top killers so dress appropriately.

    Gardening Tip 2. Design your garden before you start digging. Your time and energy is precious so don’t start digging holes and planting plants without having a garden design first. You may choose to employ a professional garden design or you may just want to draw your desired garden on a piece of paper yourself, depending on your budget. Either way if you have a plan of what you are doing and what you want to plant where, you will save yourself many back breaking hours digging and planting unnecessarily.

    Gardening Tip 3. Make a list of the tools and materials you will need. After creating your garden design, list the tools and materials that are required to create your masterpiece. You may need specialist equipment like heavy earth moving machinery that needs to be hired and booked in advance or you may wish to plant exotic plants that need to be ordered and grown specially. You don’t want to get half way through your project only to find you cannot get a piece of equipment on hire for 2 weeks. When this happens it is very frustrating and can sometimes hold up the entire job.
