planting can do just the trick. Creatingting levels with a common selection of plants is also a great idea and can create a natural flow throughout your garden. Try to stick to a themee with your plants but splash out withth something unexpected and striking.g. Make it functional: above all, you want to be able to use and enjoy your outdoor space, so make sure you incorporate usable spaces intoo your design. Sun smart: Make sure the design incorporates your needs in the best position for usability while consideringing the position of the sun. You don’t wantant an entertaining space that can’t be used because it’s sitting in the middle of an unshaded spot.
