Garden Layout

Garden Layout Planning

Planning the layout of your garden is essential to getting the look that you want.

The right garden layout makes good use of every square inch of your garden and ensures all elements will flow together nicely. It’s important that your garden is both practical and attractive, so working out the right layout is one of the first things that the designers at Floral & Hardy will do. We will look at your existing garden space, listen to your ideas, and draw up a layout of how we think the space could best be used.

With so many factors to consider, the process of designing your garden can seem quite daunting. Before you sit down to think about plans, ask yourself the following questions:

What type of garden will suit my lifestyle? 

Do you want a formal garden design, or a functional space to grow vegetables? The key is to ensure your garden is both beautifully designed and practical. You want to create a garden layout that you’ll love, and that’s specifically suited to your needs and desires.

What is my garden size

The size of your garden will greatly impact the design and layout. Small gardens generally look polished with smaller plants and simple lines and shapes. Large gardens, on the other hand, are better suited to a basic layout that incorporates various elements and dynamic landscapes.

How will the climate and topography affect my garden? 

Your regional climate, type of soil, topography should all be taken into consideration. This will ensure your garden design will flourish. Microclimates can also influence your garden, depending on the amount sun and shade exposure, wind, water levels, and several other conditions.

Our professional garden planners can conduct a site survey to determine how all of the elements will factor into your design and layout.

If you’d like some garden landscaping ideas, looking at garden design pictures  will provide much needed inspiration.
