Garden Ideas Designs and Inspiration. Outdoor areas are often the last to receive design attention, but they shouldn’t be. What surrounds your home is just as important as what is in it. Whether it is the manicured front lawn, the infinity edge pool in the back or the rose garden just outside the home office, these spaces benefit from the same attention to detail as any bathroom or kitchen. Well designed landscapes complement the home’s architecture and design, giving the home a story that can be read inside and out. By carrying your design style outdoors, you can turn a patio, deck, or even a balcony into another room of the house.
Sometimes pictures tell a story, garden ideas designs and inspiration come from seeing a picture like a relative or friends garden. We have supplied a few garden ideas designs above, hopefully something may give you inspiration enough to contact us for a consultation and quote.
Popular garden features include pergolas, patios, garden paths, outdoor lighting, container gardens, garden sheds and cottages, raised beds, vegetable gardens, birdbaths and feeders, and beautiful borders. New interest in edible gardening, water conservation and befriending wildlife has led to innovative designs for vegetable gardens, permeable paving, organic gardening and native plants. In the front yard or garden, paved, stone and brick paths, thriving garden borders and lighting add curb appeal and increase the value of your home. In the backyard or garden, plan space for your lifestyle by incorporating ample seating, outdoor tables, cushions covered in outdoor fabrics, play areas, eating spots and sunning areas. Many outdoor spaces have become quite elaborate, including seating areas, fireplaces and fire pits, barbecue counters, full-size kitchens and dining areas. Even if your space isn’t that elaborate, you can still create a relaxing spot for lounging and entertaining.
Bright accessories can take a garden from an ordinary look to impressive in seconds. Pick one main colour, then mix and match several patterns in the same shade for a cool combination. Whether it’s cushions on your outdoor furniture or creative hanging baskets with a colourful ‘clash’ that adds that wow factor.
Raised bamboo beds behind the any seating turn a terrace into a rainforest retreat, as does a pretty canopy, which is also handy for shielding sunlight. Choose exotic structural plants like potted aloe vera to complete the tropical look.
