Landscaping is the best way to make your garden look beautiful. Landscaping is the process of making a certain area more interesting – by adding or removing elements such as rocks, plants, shrubs and water features. There are many ways you can create an eye-catching landscape design depending on what sort of style you’re looking for.

If you want to add interest through color and variety – choose colors that contrast with each other so they stand out from one another. If it’s a formal garden we’d recommend using roses in combination with lavender and marigolds (for example). In an informal garden try planting geraniums combined with petunias and blue lobelias . Use different heights if possible because this will give your landscaping depth; plant taller plants at the back and smaller plants toward the front.

If you’re going for a contemporary garden – choose different textures to create interest such as smooth leaves, prickly cacti or ‘leathery’ bark from trees like birch. In an English-style cottage where flowers are common use roses combined with lavender and marigolds (for example) but also add ornamental grasses for height if possible along with shrubs that have spiky tops such as bear’s breeches.


Hardscraping is a tool of landscaping and it is used in garden and lawn areas to create a hard surface that would be harder for weeds to grow through. Hardscraping can also add an element of style because you can use different materials such as stone, gravel or slate tiles.


Using mulch around plants will help retain moisture and keep weed growth down; there are different types of mulches but the most common ones include bark chips, grass clippings, leaf mould or composted manure which all have their own benefits depending on what you’re trying to achieve with your landscaping design. Mulching reduces evaporation so less water needs applying when watering during dry spells too! It’s best not to start gardening projects over winter months unless you’re prepared for some very cold nights!
