Home Living : September 20th 2011
4 HLW - HOME LIVING: WEST, Tuesday, September 20, 2011 Keep it simple, dig the results Create your own piece of paradise. Formal or informal, it's sure to be a hit. Your garden can be as simple or sophisticated as you fancy. While some people enjoy a simple, small garden with fuss- free plants, others challenge themselves to grow gardens that scream out their personality or are the envy of all. In recent times, many homeowners have chosen to landscape their gardens for more rewarding results. Landscaping gardens yourself can be a bit tricky, but it is achievable. Planning a landscape garden design implies bringing all the outdoor elements together, in perfect harmony and complementing each other. Here's how to go about it. Keep it simple -- work out a theme Most landscape garden designs are based on a theme. It could be about relaxation, your favourite colour, a favourite plant, your family's activities, a certain colour and even fragrance. What's the focal point? What area do you want to draw attention to, what patterns and designs appeal to you, where do you want designs repeated and where will an element be a focal point. Think about plants, sizes, species and colour and placement. Keep in mind climatic conditions. The story you want to tell What's your story? Are you catering for big family gatherings, your own private space or attracting birds and butterflies. It could be anything. Those extras A fountain, bird bath, carving, paved walkways, a statue -- anything small and simple or big and dramatic. The plants you pick will entirely be based on what you want achieved. Be mindful ... Try to match your outdoor spaces to the architecture and style of your home. Having a formal, manicured garden outside a ramshackle weatherboard house doesn't make sense, any more than having a wild cottage garden in a brand new townhouse does. When all else fails ... Look through landscaping magazines and books. Look at other gardens and talk to someone who has done the job themselves. Work out everything from design to cost and don't get carried away.
