Great design begins with your home, who you are, elements you are comfortable with and the activities of your life. Design style is as important to the exterior of your home as it is to the interior of your home. It is also complementary. Individual personality, style and tastes make a garden distinctive and memorable. In addition, with approaching cool months ahead and the prospect of disappearing foliage, make the most of your landscape with a garden‘built’ for these seasonal changes. Introducing variety simply means creating some breaks in the monotony. Make a characteristic tree or large shrub the focal point of your garden. Use evergreens or plants with interesting characteristics that maintain a pleasant structure through the off-season, creating a landscape worth admiring. The right choices are essential to a unique and personal landscape design.
