If you want to remodel your outdoor area then you must have a garden design. In order to turn your dream into reality, you need to compromise some factors such as the area of your garden or the climate in your area. There are also some important things that you need to discuss with your garden designer. First and foremost, contemplate on who is going to use the garden and regard their own needs. Garden themes are the key. There are a lot of designs that can inspire you. Nevertheless, they might not be suitable for your budget. Choose a garden style that is appropriate to the shape of your garden then decide what products you desire. Be aware that your dream garden cannot be completed overnight. The time of completion will depend on the design and the intricacy of your garden. Most often it can take a while. For bigger projects, most likely it can be accomplished for a month or more.

Around your outdoor living space, add beds of mulch instead of grass. "It's one of the best investments you can have in your yard because mulch breaks down, fertilizes your plants, and prevents weeds," says Chris. "It's low-maintenance because you don't have to mow it or water it. It's also inexpensive and you only have to replace it in the spring." An added perk: Mulch also provides a pleasant aroma for your yard.

And the best part? It costs absolutely nothing!
