Just starting a project

Ok so this is most important for the final outcome of your project.

Here you will need to come up with a theme or requirement, some are obvious such as better car access or adding a swimming pool, others not so, such as a soft visual appearance, or a colour theme.

Where to start?

I’ve found the best advice here is to visit gardens, homes, garden centers and take pictures of those features you like and would add to your project if you can. Looking in magazines and tearing out the pictures of the style and keeping in a scrap book are also a good way to build up a concept.

1. Initial equipment needed.

A digital camera or smartphone

Notebook and pencil ( pencils are best as they work when its misty or humid outside)

A place to store magazine articles, photographs and notes.

Here’s a before project – the couple were just about to start a family and felt a swimming pool wasn’t a good idea for a young baby

We filled the pond and created a large patio area that was much safer for children.

  1. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your blog.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to reate your theme?
    Fantastic work!
