When it comes to landscaping, the key to ensuring that you’re making the most of your outdoor spaces is zoning – the art of creating different areas based on utility. And the good news is that you can zone your garden relatively easily, no matter how big or small it actually is.
Of course, as with any big home improvement project, it will pay dividends if you sit down and take the time to properly plan out what you want to achieve. This will help you see what you like and what you don’t, as well as helping you to devise a realistic budget and stick to it.
As a first step, think about what kind of materials you want to use, as well as which colours you’d like to see outside. Compare and contrast different options so you can see how well they work together and which would suit the different parts of your garden the best. Combinations of stone, porcelain and timber would all work well, for example.
Depending on the space you have available, you could section your garden up into a vegetable patch, an alfresco dining area, a children’s play area, flower beds and so on. It all depends on what you would like to see outside and how you intend to use the space you have.
Another option is to build an outdoor room to add interest to your garden and ensure that you have somewhere to go, no matter what the weather is doing. Privacy screens are also an excellent choice to help you separate parts of the, or you could use your planting and hedgerows to great effect in this regard, as well.
