How to design amazing gardens

Thanks so much for visiting.

How to design amazing gardens. Interesting, beautiful and well designed gardens are one of life’s absolute pleasures. Who doesn’t enjoy sitting in a beautiful garden, surrounded by interesting plants, amazing scents, beautiful objects and just lose time listening to the birds sing and the bees hum. Gardens make us happy, relaxed and provide a welcome respite from life’s hurly-burly pace.

So what makes a garden special and what can you do in your garden to make it a space to enjoy even more? Well, we could do what every other website does which is show you lots of lovely eye-candy images of amazing looking gardens. Which you then scroll through hoping to work out what do do in your garden. But we do things a bit differently, for example;

What would you need to now to transform this small garden into an amazing one; if you can only find images of gardens like the one on the right!

How do you start?

Hence why we do things differently!

Here at PlantPlots, we aim to show how YOU can make YOUR garden better, so yes, we have some eye-candy images but we also show how these eye-candy ideas can be put to use in your garden.

Gardens don’t have to cost thousands to be amazing, nor do they have to be designed or themed spaces. It just needs to work for you.

And not forgetting our amazing new book – helping you make your garden better.

This could be the best garden book you ever get!
