How do you plan a garden?
A key part of designing a large garden is the planning stage.
Many large gardens can look empty and boring if the space isn’t maximised, and so when it comes to planning a large garden, our designers will help break up the monotony of the space by adding different features. These features can act as focal points as well as points to complement the overall look and feel of the garden. Large garden water features are an especially pleasing, as are things like oversized planters, hanging baskets, play areas and dining areas. We will listen to your ideas as well as providing advice and inspiration of our own, and we are happy to share with you some large garden design pictures from previous installations as well as handdrawn designs for your space to help you truly envision how your garden will flow together and work for you.
Creating large gardens that work for you
In addition to ensuring pleasing aesthetics, many of our clients with to create an outdoor space that is functional and practical.
You may wish to use your garden for entertaining, or perhaps you have a young family or pets who would benefit from having safe, usable outdoor space. At Floral & Hardy, we take this into consideration when designing your garden, and one of the ways we can do this is to split up the area into different compartments. When drafting up large garden design plans, we can create spaces that have dining areas or even outdoor living rooms, and we can add lighting and heating so that you can enjoy your garden all year round. Adding a canopy or some shelter can also protect you from the rain during a typical British summer. Whether you want something classic like a built-in barbecue or want to keep up with the trends with an outdoor wood-fired oven, we can integrate this into the overall design. The outdoor spaces designed by Floral & Hardy are practical as well as beautiful, and we can add lots of useful elements to your large garden. You may want a separate play area for your children or you might want some allotment space so you can grow herbs, salad, root vegetables, and other low-maintenance food plants. If you want to add practical features such as this, we can ensure they work with the rest of the garden, and are attractive as well as practical.
Large garden spaces have many more options in terms of greenery and colour, too. You can create a lush ambience by planting large, evergreen shrubs and mature trees won’t overwhelm the space. Shrubs and trees could be used for added privacy, or to break up a square garden, and are a lovely, low maintenance way to made a large garden look more verdant. As experienced as we are with more traditional flower garden designs, we can also create more chic and contemporary spaces utilising technology and mod-cons. For example, when done correctly, lighting can evoke different moods in your garden for each season and for each time of the day. Every finished garden will be upscale, upmarket and visually stunning, making your outdoor space a real talking point for every guest to your home.
