The live-in garden is an extension of your home
If you want to lounge, cook, or relax in a hot tub, then home and living magazines are a good place to find inspiration. DIY warehouses and large garden centres are also a good place to look when designing a stylish live-in garden. They also allow you to see the effect of paving on the feel and experience of your garden.
The natural garden
Want to bring nature closer to home? Create a green oasis using natural planting. For a natural garden, head to a nursery for ideas. Or visit a botanical garden or arboretum and discover new and unique ways of planting.
To compare different types of garden, why not visit a home or garden fair? They give you a good and clear idea of all the latest trends and innovations. Fancy seeing what the neighbours have done? A recurring event is the annual open garden weekend in June, when private homes open up their gardens to the public. For truly unusual example gardens, the Tuinen Van Appeltern are highly recommended.
