Plan Those Flower Beds

One of the first things people think of when it comes to gardening is the flowers they choose to plant, and for good reason. They’re one of the easiest ways to elevate your garden and transform it into a space that’s worth spending time in.

Take stock of your available space outdoors. Are there areas that could benefit from a well-placed flowerbed? If you usually like to sit in one spot of your garden, consider placing flowers either around or directly opposite this space.

Your vantage point and garden perimeters will determine where best to place your buds. Pay attention to them.

Think Paths, Tiles and Paving

Paths, tiles, and paving can be instrumental in making a garden your own. When it comes to the paths you choose to lay, it’s worth thinking closely about which points in your garden you’d like to connect. Can your path meander through any existing archways or strategically split your garden into different ‘zones’?

Notice how the tulips in the image above have been placed along the perimeter of the path. Using garden elements in tandem like this can really transform your space.

Tidy Up That Lawn

you’re going for a classic look, a trimmed lawn is a simple, effective way to keep up appearances. Make sure you stay on top of it and put your grass trimmings in your compost heap if you have one. 

Again, remember your garden perimeters, lines, and borders — how can your lawn accentuate and work in harmony with these elements?

Or, Go Wild With It!

‘Rewilding’ is an increasingly popular choice for gardeners everywhere. Not only can this approach be better for local wildlife, biodiversity, and the planet, but it can also look pretty amazing too. 

Instead of neat, uniform designs, consider embracing a sprawling natural wonderland for your garden space. For more tips on the subject, check out this write-up from the RSPB.

Plant a Veg Patch

If you have the space for it, a vegetable patch can be a wonderful addition to your garden. The simple, uniform planter boxes can lend a rustic aesthetic to your space. More importantly, perhaps, they can give you the power to grow your own food at home. 

If you’ve never grown your own produce before, try it — it’s amazing!

Decking and Furniture

A well-placed deck can be a very powerful design choice for your outdoor areas. A key aspect of good design is considering which spaces you’re creating with your different elements. A deck can become its own separate space in your garden, a sort of ‘room’ in which to congregate outside. 

Think about your furniture options and how you can use them to create a communal area in your garden. Consider vantage points, spacing, and color closely.


Explore Vibrant Colors

Color is of critical importance in practically every genre of design. Your garden is no exception. Think about your personal preferences when it comes to color palettes. Do you prefer a maximalist, ‘anything goes’ approach? How can your colors compliment each other? If you plant flowers strategically, you can implement a dynamic color scheme for your garden that changes year round. 

Remember that color considerations apply to your furniture and other non-organic elements too. Approach your garden with a specific color palette in mind for best results.

Trees and Potted Plants

Even if your garden is relatively small, a potted tree or two can work wonders for your garden spaces. If you have the space, a planted tree can provide shade, protection, and wonder for generations to come. 

When considering trees for your garden, it can help to treat them as ‘border markers’ for your different spaces. How can you place trees to ‘sign post’ the different areas of your garden? Can more private spaces be protected with some well-placed shrubbery? 

Answering questions like these will make it easier to decide where best to place your plants. The clearer you are about what you want to achieve for your space, the easier it will be to make the right decision.
