Building a Garden? Here's What to do First (page 2 of 2)

Finally, a list of what you would like to have in your garden can be made. For example some of the elements you may want to include are arbors, decks, walks, or perennial beds.This early stage of the design process helps to define the goals of the garden and will help you avoid some of the pit falls that may crop up when installation is underway.The best way to think about how any outdoor space is to be designed and arranged is to look at it as an outdoor room. This new "garden room" needs its own style by creating boundaries, placing furniture, and selecting accessories for the garden that convey the mood and style that is uniquely your own.

Don't forget that the main purpose is to attract people and provide a comfortable usable outdoor space. In order to do this the space needs to be comfortable by providing a seating area, a view, and placing interesting accessories to tie the room together. Think of the space or spaces as part of your home or an extension of your home. The garden rooms should be just as inviting and enjoyable as any room of your home. The garden rooms will add virtual square footage to your home, which will give it a larger feel as you move from indoors to outdoors. Now that the space has a goal, through a well-defined style, decorating it will be an extension of your personality and preferences.

There are many garden items available that can add interest and comfort to your new living space. Have fun with it, a garden is an ever-evolving room that can be changed and improved as the seasons come and go. You can have a different color scheme with each changing season by painting a bench or adding different accessories. Be creative with your garden, plan it well and enjoy the benefits of a well-conceived garden space.
