For anyone looking to create a new garden or landscaped area, one of the first things you’ll want to do is design an area within your garden and make it your own, giving it your own look and design. And we totally understand, especially if you’re designing your front yard. It’s the showpiece of your property and you want to do it right, that’s what we do.

So in today’s article, I’d like to give you some ideas that you could do to give your garden a new look, whether you’re wanting to create a new garden area of you have an established one and want to refresh the look. Either way, we’re here to help.

Where do you turn to when you’re looking for new ideas, sites like ours, magazines, or other blogs, there’s plenty of ways to find ideas. Whether it’s a retaining wall you want or a paved area, maybe a complete garden or a feature area within your yard. You have the idea we do the rest.


When your first starting out and looking for ideas, there’s probably a theme or style you have in mind. This might be a number of things. And it always depends on the type of land you have. This is where a retaining wall might be an option to create a larger living area, Or you want to create a feature area out the front of your property and you’re looking for a feature retaining wall, and a garden area. 

Or what about a themed garden. Maybe a relaxing type of garden that offers functionality. Let’s say you’re looking at a native style of garden or even an Asian inspired garden. There’s a number of angles you can take. Below I’ll cover a couple of areas you could look at.


Water Features.

Waterfalls are great in the right setting, they bring a sense of calm to the area and can create a totally different feel to your property. You can go small and budget-friendly or you can go all out and actually create a complete waterfall with all the trimmings, depending on budget and space. So there are a few things you can do to create a little oasis within your home. 


Themed Garden Styles.

This is a great way to give your property a unique look. And this can be one of the most enjoyable types of landscaping to do. Your only limitations you have are probably your budget. Below are some themed gardens you may consider.


Themes you might consider are.

  • A relaxes zen type garden
  • Asian style
  • Modern style. Of course, this is open to what you want
  • A native style garden
  • An older English style
  • A European style garden. Spanish would be an idea of this.


This is where we would suggest speaking to an experienced Adelaide landscaping company for ideas and costs. And we are the team to speak to regarding this. It’s important you have the right conditions for the style of garden you want. Especially if water features, pond and even pools are considered.


Garden Zoning

Garden zones are a great way to enhance your landscaped area. This gives you other options. And if your budget is limited this can be a good way of getting around a complete landscape, especially if you have a large property and don’t have the budget for a complete makeover.

Just like we spoke about with themed garden you can create themed zones. A kids area would be a great example of this. What about a meditation area. All you would really need is a small section of the garden where you can enclose with some trees or a feature wall where you can get away and relax. Again water feature zones are an option. There’s plenty you can do. And a lot of the time they are very cost effective.
