Whether doing it yourself or engaging professionals?

You can either get a professional garden desginer to do the plan for you or you can make your own! Take a look around your house and divide it into different areas and understand which style you would like for each.

 

See some examples below.

 

FRONT

You can have a small area in the front. Rocks and woodchips are good decorations.
