We have been meaning to write this post for a while. At Aidai we are all keen gardeners – not professionals (just keen).
I recently hired a fencing company for work on a side fence and we got talking. I wanted to know if it was possible to basically DIY your own stunning garden design, with firstly a limited budget and secondly with the experience of what can only be described as keen.
Here’s what the friendly fencing contractor had to say:
Generally, it is depends on the preference and style of the house owner which type of garden that they are going to have, but apart from that, you may have to that the decision about the type of type of garden have to based on these following elements;
This is the most important factor to consider but normally be ignored by many of us. You have to choose garden design or type of garden base on the climate of where you are living. For example, it is really impossible to have tropical garden if you are living in the freeze zone. You have to choose garden types and designs that suitable with the local climate first, other wise your garden will not last long and you have to spend a lot of money on maintenance your garden.
Space has great impact to the design of the garden. You have to consider the design that suitable with the space that you have. However, in most case, I would suggest that utilization of the space is very, depending on the purpose and preference of the house owner. Arranging space particularly for garden have to be very careful in design and function. Because 0garden needs more function than any other area. For example, it needs the waste water system, it is the place that sunlight have to reach and has proper climate for plants and tree. So you have take these factors in to account before you decide type and design of the garden.
This factor is also important, you can not have your desired garden without proper budget. Also, you do not have to spend much money to get good and beautiful garden if you have good budget planning. One of the big tips here is if you have very limited budget, you can hire only garden designer and once when you have he design, you can ask the designer to give you the list of plants and equipment need for the garden and you go to the shop/market then let the designer arrange it.
This is very effective ways, because you can reduce the cost for the garden equipment. As you can have cheaper price if you buy them for yourself to avoid mark-up cost that usually add by the garden designer.
