Considerations when planning your Back Garden Ideas and Garden Borders

When thinking about your back garden ideas, garden borders often look gorgeous in early summer though can lack interest during the rest of the year. When you are planning a garden border consider that you will want it to be interesting throughout all seasons.

Be sure to include plenty of evergreens, structural plants such as grasses, and garden architecture (obelisks and other wooden or metal plant supports). This will ensure plenty of interest even into the winter months.

Top Tips

  • When considering your back garden ideas don’t place plants with widely differing growth rates in the same bed. The faster-growing plants may smother their slower neighbours.
  • For garden borders raised beds edged with old railway sleepers or retaining walls give you greater control over the soil and involve a lot less bending.
