How to design a stylish and functional backyard garden space

A garden is one of the most stunning features your home can have. While maintaining a natural garden takes hard work, it can be a fun hobby that the whole family can get involved in, and the rewards are plentiful.

If you are going to design a backyard garden space, you want to make sure it is both stylish and functional for your need. You don’t want to create something that will be difficult for you to manage in the long-term.

Let’s look at some tips for creating a stylish and functional garden space.

1.   Leave room for other activities

When you design a garden space, make sure that you don’t overdo it and take up too much space from the rest of your backyard. While the garden can be the main feature, you don’t want it to be so large that there’s no room for kids to play or for you to have a barbeque in the summertime.

2.   Consider your climate and gardening willpower

While having a lush and green garden is everyone’s goal, you need good weather and the willpower to manage it effectively into the future. The larger the garden you design, the more work you are going to have to put in to keep every inch of it looking perfect – don’t make a big garden if you aren’t prepared to put the work in to maintain it.

3.   Consider the size plants will grow

To have the best use of the space, you want to make sure that the plants you intended to grow in the garden are going to look nice when they reach maturity. You don’t want to have too many plants that are hanging over the sides of the garden space and not looking very nice.
