Setting your garden up is one of the most enjoyable landscape design projects you will ever undertake. It will be a place of relaxation, meditation, and the kind of work you won’t mind spending a little time on a Saturday afternoon.
It’s important to select a theme for a great many reasons. Chief among them, you want the garden to reflect your personality and lifestyle. For the whimsical soul, you may opt for a Tropical Garden with bold, leafy foliage and plenty of water features, these gardens are ideal for kicking back and enjoying an afternoon chat with friends.
Or, you may decide that your refined nature feels more comfortable in Formal or Asian garden. These are great choices and exude both elegance and style. Whichever style you choose, you want to be sure to consider the following aspects:
- Ease of maintenance
- Viability of plant species
- Expected usage
- Presence within the existing landscape; does it “fit in”
- Cost and difficulty to install
