The most fascinating, demanding but also rewarding aspect of gardening is the design of your garden. It is the area where artists and plantspeople meet,
for a successful garden design forms a unified whole that is much more than the sum of its individual parts.
It combines the static, fixed architectural features and the dynamic, living structure of the garden: the trees, shrubs, hedges, herbaceous plants, grass and others.
It takes account of harmony of form, texture and color, together with the changing aspect through the seasons. However large or small your garden, there is no reason for it not to have impact and originality.
The solutions you choose will depend on the characteristics of the site, your needs and your personal taste.
With a little research you will find plenty to stimulate your ideas, including examples of many historical and geographical styles and a large number of practical, well-designed gardens.
