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.
