Long Modern Garden Design – Part 2

In part 1 looking at SGD student Sander’s long modern garden design in Holland we focused on his design. Now we’re going to see how the garden turned out…

And Sander’s going to share his top 3 tips he learnt from designing and building his garden…

Garden Construction


Sander’s Top Tips for Creating a Successful Garden Design!

1. If you are a plant-a-holic: make a Pinterest board of flowers/foliage you love. Then scrap (at least) half of the pictures when you make your final design to avoid a mish-mash.
2. Don’t be scared to try again, again and again. I made 6 designs before I was happy (you can see the final design in part 1).
3. Prepare your soil well. I had a layer of 25cm of heavy clay in my garden replaced by a mix of potting compost and garden soil.
