DE­SIGN­ING a gar­den is a won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ence, look­ing back at the fin­ished gar­den and see­ing your ideas come to life, but it is an aw­ful feel­ing when you have spent your money and got it wrong.

Whether your gar­den is 4000sq m or 40sq m the size does not mat­ter, how it looks and works for you when you have fin­ished is the most im­por­tant.

If you have good ideas, but you are not sure how to make them great it would be worth your while to find a qual­i­fied hor­ti­cul­tur­ist or land­scape ar­chi­tect to help you.

Th­ese peo­ple have years of ex­pe­ri­ence and a truck load of ideas that you may not have dreamt of.

An idea might be a bench seat, the seat may be made from old re­cy­cled tim­ber, or it may be wrought iron, it may not be a bench seat at all, it maybe a sin­gle seat for you to have some alone time in the gar­den.

De­sign ideas are im­por­tant and end­less, but just as im­por­tant is how th­ese sin­gle ideas are put to­gether.

Un­less you have had ex­pe­ri­ence in land­scape de­sign, find some­one who has, you will love the dif­fer­ence.
