Outdoor Garden Designs Ideas - This article is the first in a series that will clarify the countless facets of garden design and provide you with the knowledge necessary to plan a garden that is aesthetically pleasing and functional. In these articles, you'll find the necessary information necessary to undertake your own personal garden project from concept through to completion.
Every garden benefits from great garden design. Whatever your expectations are, planning and design are necessary. Among the very first questions I ask a customer (as a design consultant) is "what do you want from your garden?" The planning will focus on these needs and make a personalized garden which can be appreciated by everyone for a long time.
To provide a garden design with a definitive guide I'd need to be writing a 500-page publication, so we'll only go through the complete basics in this article. One thing I have learned over the past twenty plus years as a garden designer is that few people are fully content with our gardens. Many long to get a bigger garden, a few for something more manageable and smaller, but the vast majority will make the very best of their existing plots.
Gardening is essentially about plants that are growing, but the setting where we place them is possibly the single most important component that produces a garden otherwise or appealing. The actual test of a great garden design is if you are appealed to by the outcome. As a facilitator, I have always seen my role as a garden designer, aiming to help my customers in creating a garden that reflects their taste and personality.
