Landscaping design ideas
The hard landscaping of the garden and the choice of materials is paramount and whilst budget may ultimately dictate the finishes, always try to aim for the best you can afford. For example, cheap pine decking looks like a budget finish from the day it is installed, let alone after a year or two, when it will become a slippery algae covered liability unless regularly maintained. A good quality hardwood deck, on the other hand, will look beautiful for many years to come with very little maintenance.
Roof & Terrace designs
For those who live in an apartment or are denied a garden, remember that flat roofs or terraces can equally be transformed into very inviting and useful outdoor spaces, although a roof garden maybe subject to planning. Many plants and even trees are quite happy to spend their lives in containers providing they are kept watered and the nutrients in the soil replaced. With the benefit of computerised irrigation and slow release fertilisers this is very easy.
