Gardening Inspiration

Do you struggle to know where to start in your garden? Do you find it difficult to visualise what you want to achieve in your outdoor space?

You are not alone, designing an outdoor space is extremely challenging, as there are no confines in terms of roofs and you have to take the vagaries of the climate and the effect of the seasons and the passing of time into account. No wonder it’s difficult to know where to start.

I have pulled together some design suggestions and thoughts in these posts to help get the creative spark going. I’m constantly inspired by what I see and the gardens I visit along the way, picking up ideas far and wide that I can bring into my own design practice.
