Considerations Before Getting Started

  • Current features
    Are there any structures, plants or existing landscaping features you want to remove or retain?

 

  • Time (and inclination) available to maintain a new garden?
    The amount of time you have to maintain your new garden will affect the choice of plants and hard landscaping.

 

  • What Purpose do you want the new garden to fulfil?
    Do you want to entertain in the garden? Do your children need a place to play? Do you have a fantastic view that you want to enhance? Do you require plants for seasonal interest, colour, scent, wildlife-friendly, seclusion or privacy?

 

  • What budget do you have in mind?
    This is a very important question, as the size of the budget will determine what structures and plants can be incorporated into the design.
