In the last part of the eco garden series I want show you how to use the basic principles of interior design in your garden.. I do have to say I am not a professional gardener but a happy amateur for circa 20 years. I have always had a garden, even my little flat in my single days in London had a small (s/w facing of course) garden! With our big renovation in the pipeline I decided to properly design my own garden (future post as it is a work in progress) and thought why not apply all the same rules as with interiors… hence my garden series….
I hope you have enjoyed the series, it has been fun putting it together I learned a lot researching and writing it!
Please feel free to share with any friends who might be making changes in their own gardens…
Thanks for reading,
When undertaking heavy or construction work I would recommend:
- Always consult the professionals and take advice and help with the lifting! Consider employing a contractor belonging to a professional organisation. Ask for references photos and ideally speak to previous clients (anyone in London I highly recommend Ginkgo Garden Design who did my garden in Wimbledon) can’t think why I have no photos on post but this section is an afterthought!! The RHS also has lists of companies click here to see
- Check with your local council planning office to avoid expensive mistakes/disputes – fences and garden structures if they are near a boundary wall often have height limitations.
- last but not least with an eco spirit let us all try to re-use, re-vamp, re-cycle and use previously loved material where possible…. 😉
