o   Easy Access: You should be able to enter the garden or landscaped area easily.

o   Convenient Circulation: A space is created to be appreciated as well, so you and your guests should be able to move in and around it conveniently.

o   No Hassle Egress: As you leave, there should not be any damage to the garden or the landscaped portions.

Create Hand Out Spaces:

Selection of Structural Materials:

Choice of Plants:

Last, but not the least come the plants. Now that you have a solid plan and knowledge about the land in hand, you can go ahead and plan a love garden or landscape for your property. Just remember that you are constrained for space, so it would be good to have plants that are columnar or fastigiate. Other important aspects to remember are:

o   Place the plants to soften corners.

o   Learn the art of pruning.

o   Limit the variety of plants in the space.

o   Pick out seasonal plants to get maximum out of the few plants that you have.


Whoa, so many steps? Think you can handle all of this and then the maintenance? Professionals will always do a much better job so; it is best that they handle the work. You just relax and enjoy the space with guests, family or all by yourself.
