If you have the time, space, interest and budget, then you’re ready to start designing your patio garden. Always set aside some time for planning and organizing before going all hands-on on your patio garden. It’s not all about fixing and hard work, you really need time to plan everything out before getting dirty and excited. Always consider the place where you live in and always keep in mind that landscaping is important in your design. Of course, you shouldn’t miss out on your budget. Always make a list so that you wouldn’t be caught short in the middle of designing your patio garden. Remember that you should have fun because it’s your patio, anyway.
The first tip would be considering the purpose of your garden. Will it be an area where you and your family can relax or will it be an area where your kids can run around or play? You should think of these things before splurging on things for your garden, the thing here is to think of who will often be around in your garden. If you are living with children, you should consider some safety measures that can affect the design and as well as your garden itself. So think about what is your garden for?
The next thing that you should think about is your budget. Do you want to spend a lot of money in designing your garden? Or do you want to lessen the expenses? The key here is to list all the important things that your garden needs for you to be able to budget your money. You can also recycle things that you think have no use. You are not only saving a lot of money by recycling but also you are helping our environment. If you want to make your garden look dramatic, you can put fewer plants as these make a more dramatic effect than splurging a lot.
In a small garden is it essential to use a limited plant palette – too many different plant species will make the space seem busy and closed in. It is also important to make clever use of all available planting space. Climbers are a great way to introduce greenery without taking up valuable space, and shrubs like Garrya elliptica, Fatshedera lizeii and Itea illicifolia, Ceanothus and Rhamnus alaternus perform well when secured to a wall or fence. In courtyards where there are no borders place trellis panels in floor mounted troughs. Green walls work extremely well in small spaces. Sedum roofs on sheds, bin stores, and other covered spaces are a great way to introduce low-maintenance planting into smaller gardens.
