There are a few questions you need to ask yourself when thinking about your garden:
Is it for your children to play, to increase the value of your home, or to grow your own edibles? It may be a mixture of many factors.
You may only want foliage plants or selected colours, fruit trees, a formal-looking garden, or a cottage-themed oasis.
Be honest; there is no point in selecting amazing plants that you won’t have the time to maintain. This doesn’t mean you won’t get different options that are equally as amazing.
Is it a water feature, a raised veggie patch or a deck with lots of lighting for outdoor entertaining? Think about paths, seating, BBQ areas, fences and garden shapes.
Landscaping can become quite expensive. Consider your budget thoroughly; you may decide to do your section in stages. As a rule of thumb you need to allow 10%–15% of the land and house value to complete a landscaped section. This percentage includes your fences, paths, patios, etc.
