Gardens should be seen and treated like another room to the property

When it comes to investing in our gardens, we should think of them as another room, and be prepared to spend on furniture, lighting and all the other creature comforts we expect indoors.

In order to get the most out of your Garden, think of it as another room, or rooms, in your home. Just as a home has well defined and carefully planned rooms, so should your landscape; using your materials wisely allows you can create different “rooms” in your landscape.

Don’t forget to think about how you’ll link your spaces. How will people move from one area of your garden to another? Create openings to encourage exploration in your garden and keep people moving throughout the landscape.
