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.
