A new look for your garden this summer

By Jack Pfeffer Subscribe to RSS | March 9th 2012 | Views:

Those wishing to design their own garden this spring may be at a loss when it comes to starting out. By designing your own garden, you can add a personal touch and give your garden a unique character. Garden design North London, east London and in other built up areas can be particularly challenging due to restricted space, so careful planning and allocation of space is vital. Designs can all too easily become chaotic and uncoordinated as you incorporate your ideas; the last thing you want is your planned dream garden turning into an ugly eyesore. There are some key points to bear in mind when designing your own garden that will keep the separate elements and layout cohesive, resulting in a visually appealing garden.

Like any structural design, your garden will need basic “bones” to support the rest of the building elements. Small shrubs, trees and hedges will center the design of your garden, as well as attracting birds and other garden wildlife.

Next, you need to select a colour theme. This is often where most garden design novices fall down. Having every colour of plant under the sun is possible, but the garden must be carefully divided into shades in order for this approach to be successful. Carefully consider the relationships between complimentary colours- certain combinations will have the effect of making the opposites mutually vibrant.

Every successful garden will have carefully laid out focal points, such as large plants, structures or ornaments that will draw attention to the surrounding areas and plants. No garden is too small to have a focal point; too often gardeners become preoccupied with the small details such as new weeds or pesticide damage. Visitors or first time viewers of your garden will not be paying attention to minor matters, and to successfully design a garden, you need to step back and view the layout as though you hadn’t seen it before.

If you decide that you need some help designing your garden, garden design East London specialist Fiona Heyes offers uncompromising service. With extensive technical and horticultural knowledge, Fiona will add flair and individuality to your garden plans.
