Stunning DIY Garden Design Ideas For Your New Home

Stunning DIY Garden Design Ideas For Your New Home

Raising the deposit and bagging the mortgage for your new home wasn’t easy, but you did it. Well done; you have taken the first steps towards the rest of your life. You now have a base that you can use as an investment to help you climb the housing ladder. Most people also turn their minds towards starting a family and putting down roots.

We are funny creatures who never settle for what we have. Even in the first week, you will start to think about home improvements. The property you found in an estate agents in Burntwood may have a barren backyard, so you must make it your first project. You might regret not helping your dad out a bit more in the garden at home. Never mind; you can enlist his help the monumental task that stands before you.

Draw A Plan

You must have an idea of how you would like a garden to look before you start buying materials and breaking ground. It needn’t be anything fancy to begin with; make lots of sketches and pick out features that you think look good. When you settle on a design, draw it again, but this time to scale. When you have a plan such as this one, you can work on the whole garden at once. You can lay the concrete foundations for all of the raised beds, for example.

When you think of designs, try to include features that blur the lines between the indoors and outdoors. The best gardens look like an extra room to the house. Here are a few ideas for you to ponder.

  • Build a deck at the same level as the floors in your house.
  • Install a canopy.
  • Fit bi-fold doors so that you have unobstructed access to the patio or deck. They remove a psychological and make the garden more accessible than any other style of door.
  • Make the grass a circular or curved shape so that it looks natural. Those shapes also allow for bigger flower beds.
  • Section the garden using tall plants or screens. People will want to walk down there to discover what is behind them.
  • Make a path that winds around the garden. It is better for people to walk a circuit rather than returning on the same route.

Water Feature

Is your garden going to become at one with nature, or will it be a contemporary masterpiece? The former will benefit from a natural pond that hosts an ecosystem. Your imagination is the limit with the latter. Will you create a beautiful raised structure from marble, or build a rill through the middle of the patio? Whichever you choose, a water feature is vital in most gardens.

Garden Lighting

You can turn the space into a tropical jungle in the evenings with simple lighting techniques. Use low voltage LED fittings, illuminate plants and other features from ground level. The effect is stunning, and your garden will look exciting and dramatic.

Though there is valuable advice here, your garden will remain a work in progress forever. Because of that you will get years of pleasure from it. If it doesn’t turn out well to begin with, don’t worry. It isn’t the end of the world, and you can change it whenever you like. I hope you found my ideas interesting; many others used them to achieve success. Now it is your turn
