Essential Large Garden Design Ideas

Large garden designs

A large garden can benefit from professional design. This will consider your vista (views), the direction your garden faces, and the period of your property. You can be more creative with a bigger plot of land by mixing garden styles, trying out different types of planting, and zoning the land for your favourite activities.

Be creative with the planting

With a big garden, you can be more creative and imaginative with the planting. Dedicate a portion for growing vegetables and herbs. A wildflower meadow would help attract bees and is a brilliant way to keep garden maintenance to a minimum. Shrubs and focal trees are perfect for adding interest and variation.

Maximise the vista

If you are lucky, you will have a wonderful view from your garden. This vista should be enhanced so that you can enjoy the scenery or a landmark building. A raised platform and a seating arrangement facing in the right direction can help you admire that view.

Take yourself on a journey

A big garden can take you on a journey. This could be a winding path leading you down the lawn, through a vegetable plot, and onto a wild meadow. Paths are, therefore, an important part of guiding you through a large plot of land.

Entertain your friends and family

Entertainment should be a vital part of a large back garden. If possible, it should be located near the house and the kitchen door. A decked or paved seating area with a large table and a cover over the head would be fabulous.

 If you’re feeling extravagant, you could also include an outdoor kitchen area with a built-in barbecue, grill, sink, and pizza oven.

Relax with a water feature

A pretty pond or a contemporary waterfall feature can enhance a garden and make it feel tranquil and relaxing.

Include a garden room

With a big garden, you could add a summer house, an outside office pod a large shed or greenhouse.

Use garden lighting to enhance design features

Lighting is essential for an ample outside space. You can illuminate key features such as mature trees, water features or decking steps. Sensor lights are a great way to add a layer of security against intruders.

Feel secure and safe

Security is vital, so a sturdy boundary wall or fence is necessary. A strong gate with a secure lock is also a priority. Walls and garden fences can look attractive and become part of the overall garden design, so make sure you add this to your overall garden design cost considerations.
