Although having new landscaping in your garden is a positive and rewarding experience, it can also cause some consternation during the process of choosing which of the many possible features you want to include in the landscape design. This will primarily be driven by your personal preferences, although we highly recommend that you also take on board the advice that your chosen landscape design experts give you.
That advice will not only concern the practicalities of any single feature included but will also refer to the aesthetics of it based on the experience that the landscapers have of designing other gardens and seeing the outcomes. One thing is certain, you have no shortage of options which can be a problem in itself. To alleviate that, here are ten of the top features which are guaranteed to enhance your landscaped garden.
Landscape Design Feature #1 – Paving
Paving is a frequently requested feature for a landscape design. A core reason is it provides a secure base underfoot when walking through the garden. Stone paving is also robust and should not need replacing any time soon. The huge variety of stone types, colours, and shapes, also make paving aesthetically pleasing.
Landscape Design Feature #2 – Water Features
Another popular landscaping feature, and one which has many options. At one extreme you have a swimming pool which can turn your garden into a water park for your family. On the other are small, decorative fountains, plus you have countless possibilities in between in terms of size, type, and designs of water features.
Landscape Design Feature #3 – Patio
Patios are another quintessential feature of many landscape designs. They provide a link between the house and the rest of the garden, as well as providing space for you, your family, and guests to gather. Depending on its size, a patio can be used as a seating area or a BBQ station. Options for patio stones are plentiful.
