Designing your garden can feel like a very stressful task, with some many different options available to you. It is important to think about the space that you have available to you, as well as the time that you have to tend to your garden. If you live a very busy lifestyle you will want to create a garden that is low maintenance.

In order to create some depth and intrigue in a garden many people will look to developing a patio or decking area and in some cases will use different heights to also further develop the look of their outdoor space. A tiered garden is one of the best ways to achieve this.

 

You can start this by having a raised decking or patio area built in a part of your garden. You will want to consider what edging you have on this, such as Bespoke Glass Balustrades from companies like https://www.aspireglass.co.uk/glass-balustrade/ as well as any shelters that you may want to have installed to give you some shade from the sun. Once you have created this area you will want to think about whether you have any patio furniture and pot plants placed around the decking or patio.

As the raised patio is probably going to be the main focal point of your garden you should then think about what planting beds and lawn areas you are going to have around it. When planting you should ensure that you are aware of what type of soil that you have. A home pH test will be able to give you a good indication of your soil quality and whether you need to have any additional nutrients added to the soil to improve its growth potential.
