Many people will have all sorts of gardening ideas that they would like to incorporate in their garden. A patio, a rockery, a water feature, some lawns and some plants are all common gardening ideas that people would like to show off. The trouble is a lot of people have lots of ideas and yet have little idea of how to incorporate all of them into their garden.
It is quite common for people with small gardens who try and cram to much into their small space. It is though no different from those who have big gardens, they too will try and get a lot in but will often find features being lost in the overall space of the garden.
The obvious thing to do is to plan based on your garden size. Traditionally this was done through the use of graph (or grid) paper and a pencil; today, technology is offering a helping hand. There are many programs now available that will help a gardener to come up with a look for their garden that will incorporate all of their gardening ideas. These programs allow a garden of any size to be planned. Water features, plants, lawns and rockeries can not only be shown in the plans, but also in 3D. This allows a gardener to view their garden plans and what it would look like in real life.
The quality of programs varies depending on how much you are willing to spend on them. There are plenty of free programs available from the internet. Although basic in presentation, these do enough to give an idea of what a garden will look like. As you go up in monetary cost, the programs quality and options increase. Some of the most advanced programs will even be able to calculate the cost of your gardening ideas.
Of course, the fact there is technology to help is not a guarantee that your gardening ideas will end up actually on the ground. Many people take so long planning that they never actually get around to digging or moving items into their garden. Many people still plan their gardens by actually doing it in the real world, planting creating lawn areas and learning by their mistakes. There is no right way to come up with gardening ideas. As long as people enjoy their gardens, then that is all that really matters.
