Top tips for landscaping your garden:

Plan your project

Rejuvenating your garden can be made easier by having a design concept. Decide how you want your garden to look and what you need to do to transform it.

Try to make it suitable for all year round – both aesthetically and physically. Planting trees is a great idea. Not only will they provide shade for the summer, but they could also block winds during the autumn and winter too.

Consider the addition of water features, ponds, vegetable patches and decking and look at removing broken or outdated garden furniture.

Keep the mess to a minimum
