More Garden Offices Articles A keen gardener has explained her strategy for bringing greater order and design cohesion to her home garden.
Caroline Knight of the Guardian noted that after carefully studying other people's gardens, she has come to realise that hers "is a very poor example of good design".
"It consists mainly of things that people have given me, illicit cuttings from various walks, sprouted seeds of dubious ancestry and plants that have parachuted in from elsewhere," she said.
Ms Knight added that such a mismatch of plant life did not produce the "coordinated colours and cleverly arranged textures" synonymous with well thought-out and designed gardens.
She therefore declared that in order to put this problem right, she plans to buy "three glorious standard roses" for her prominent front garden bed, adding that she is determined to resist the urge to buy a mixture of colours.
Homeowners aiming to make the most of their gardens could consider investing in a garden office or an attractive log cabin. Last week, the Worcester News reported on an award-winning garden that has been specially designed to help hayfever sufferers.
