creating an ideal garden with garden design techniques
Like you, I'm sure, I've spent a lot of time planning and creating the inside of my home...

...and suddenly I realised I also wanted to design a garden that would make my tiny outdoor space my own too....

...a place of beauty - a space to relax and enjoy...


This seemed an awful lot harder than just deciding what color to paint the living room walls though...!

My garden is only very tiny - but it would still be an expensive and time-consuming mistake to get it wrong...

...so I hunkered down with plenty of inspirational and informative garden design books...

...and took some time out to study for an accredited garden design qualification, too...

...to really discover how to make the most of my outdoor space...

...along the way I was surprised to develop a genuine passion for creating gardens...

...and so I bring you this website, full of design secrets and tips...

The skills and techniques professionals use to get fantastic-looking and practical, easy to look-after results...

...ideas that YOU can use too...!


Here I share these insights with you...

...and show you how to 'Garden Design It Yourself' to create your own stunning outdoor space...

...much more easily and economically than you ever imagined!

So, let's explore these professional design tips and techniques for your garden together...

...and learn how to get the gardens we want ... without all the hassle and hardwork!
