Pictures of landscape design

home>garden supplies>

I find that having pictures of landscape designs or little snippets of landscaping ideas are the best sources of inspiration. Pictures say a lot because it helps you visualise the final outcome and gives you something to aspire to.

Pictures of landscape design give you an overall perspective of what you can achieve. I sampled the online landscape design function on the Better Homes and Gardens site and have found it easy to use (just sign up and it's free to use) - it gives you pictures with a broad outline of what you can achieve in your garden. And whilst it's not as sophisticated as other landscape design software, it's fairly simple to use, does the job and gives you a birdseye view of your general garden layout plan - all free of charge. Visit BHG then go to their garden/lanscaping section to try it out.

After you printed out pictures of your bare bones landscape design, fill in the places for shrubs, trees, groundcovers etc with suggestions from the 27 garden plans they have available. Or customise the landscape design by choosing plants from their encyclopedia that suits your climate.

Other magazines with inspirational garden landscape design pictures give you before and after pictures of landscape design - a great motivator if you ask me.  I tend to like to pick and choose - after all everyone is different in their tastes.  Great ideas for different settings, different outlooks, different styles.  Above all, remember that gardening isn't about getting it right first time - so relax, a garden continually evolves just as you do in life and that's the beauty of gardening - it's for a lifetime!  Read more about the basics of garden design.
