The Best Garden Design Ideas for Spring
How to create the perfect outdoor space
Your garden is a great space which can be used as a relaxing and peaceful getaway from the stresses and strains of modern life.
Winter tends to be a slow and mainly dormant time of year for your garden, cold frosts and dew take over the veg patch and your flowers are kept at bay by that cool morning frost creeping in over the top of your garden wall. Spring is on the horizon, and now is the time to mould your garden into the space you’ve always dreamed of.

Whether you live in the city or the country side, ecological gardens have become more and more important to help protect the diversity of our ecosystem.
By cornering an area of your garden off and allowing the growth of native grasses and flowers, you’ll attract different types of bugs and insects which will in turn feed local birds. Not only will you get the opportunity to sit back and enjoy the different types of birds visiting your garden, but you will also attract ladybirds to your garden which love to snack on pests. Which are only renowned for feasting on your flowers and vegetables.
Whether you’ll use a shed as a man cave, a green fingered girls getaway or, with all of the improvements you are doing to your garden this year.

A rock garden or rockery is a great way to add an extra dynamic to your garden. A rockery also allows you to expand the variety of flora you can grow to species such as alpine varieties which are used to growing in rocky mountains with high levels of drainage. Rockery adds another dimension to your garden, yet at the same time provides a unique ecosystem for the local wildlife.
A pond is a great feature for your garden to encourage a variety of new animals, many of which are rarely seen.
With just a few changes to how you build and lay out your pond, you can maximise the ecological spread of the fauna in your garden.
