How To Make The Most Of Your Garden Design Plans

Date Published: June 25th, 2020

Designing your dream garden layout doesn’t have to be a chore or something that breaks the bank. Taking the time to plan your design and shop around will give you the chance to not only save money, but ensure your hard work goes to plan within a set timescale. Below are some of our top tips and tricks to ensure you make the most of your garden design plans.

Hire A Professional

If you can afford to, hire a professional landscape designer to help with your garden design plans. They can layout exactly the tools and resources you need to make your dreams come true, and will be able to point you in the right direction for cheaper options. If you’re looking for a budget garden shed, we offer a unique range of sheds that differ in style, size and look. You can shop our full range here.

Lay It All Out

If you can’t afford to hire a professional, make sure you plan all of your design out before making any concrete decisions. Ensure you’re placing items, flowers and statement pieces such as water features in the right place, and draw anything you like the idea of. Drawing out plans can help to imagine your design easier, and will allow you to colour match and change items on your blueprint with ease.

Plan With Drawings

Not sure which garden design plans you like the look of the most? Draw out multiple designs and lay them out beside each other. Not only will this help you choose the right blueprint for your garden, but it will give you the chance to ask others of their opinions and make a solid decision before buying anything too pricey or large.

Measure Everything

This should be a no-brainer, but ensure you’re measuring everything you can while you have the space to do so. Installing a workshop or tool shed can be a big move, especially if your garden is on the small side. Measuring out the space will not only allow you to see if the shed itself will fit with your garden layout, but will also show you just how much it can dominate a smaller space and allow you to change your shed before buying.

Shop Around

This is true for all aspects of your garden layout. You may find that flowers and trees can be bought for cheaper in smaller garden centres, and water features vary in price no matter where you shop. Create a spreadsheet of prices and always choose the cheaper option to maximise your budget.
