    Some of these gardens look spectacular? Really goes to show that you can make something beautiful out of a small space. And it doesn’t have to cost the earth. We recommend using a builders merchant for your paving stones. Or if you have a project manager, get them to shop around for the best prices.

    We love the structure in the very first photo, we were wondering if there are plans that can be purchased to create the framed house/wall in the photograph.

    I love landscaping, it really makes a backyard look great. Ours is kind of boring right now and we want to plant more. I would love to have flower beds and little gardens!

    These are all such fun and creative ideas for landscaping. I am looking to have my yard landscaped and designed so the outside looks just as good on the inside. I will have to show my landscaper and see if he is able to do any of these designs, I hope that he can and I can’t wait to see how it turns out.

    These are beautiful examples. I think the first photo is my favorite though, it just looks so calming. If I had that yard I’d constantly be out there relaxing. Maybe someday I’ll get my yard as pristine as that one.

    I love the look of all of these gardens. They are all so simple and yet they look so good. When I was looking at them I thought to myself “why didn’t I think of that”. I am going to have to try some of this stuff out. Thanks for an inspiring post.

    That giant chess set looks a little intense for my yard, but I wouldn’t mind having more hedges. They add a lot of drama to any landscaping. I think they’re elegant without drawing a lot of attention to themselves.
