The answer to the question of How Beautiful Can Your Outdoor Space Be is only constrained by your imagination. Putting aside your budget for a minute thin! of how you would really lo"e your garden to loo!. #t doesn$t matter how large or small your garden is if you ha"e any outdoor space there are many ways to utilise it so that you can get en%oyment from it for most of the year. Of course if you are luc!y enough to li"e somewhere with the right climate then there is no reason that you cannot be en%oying your garden all year round. You will need to gi"e some thought to what you actually want to use your garden for. &o you want somewhere to rela' to entertain does it need to be family friendly. You might want lots of "ibrant colours or e"en prefer to mi' flowers and "egetables. (ould you prefer raised beds so that you don$t need to bend o"er when you are weeding. &o you need wider pathways for wheelchair access. )o two people ha"e e'actly the same needs and no necessities should preclude something from loo!ing good. Some things that you might want to consider are a dec!ing or patio area. Then do you want this area to be open or enclosed. How about a pergola or arbour o"er part of it. This could gi"e you a nice shady area to escape the full glare of the summer sun. Then of course you could ha"e a barbecue or outdoor !itchen at the edge of this area. (ouldn$t it be great to eat outside when the weather is good e"en better if you can coo! outside as well. You might want to fence this area off. &o you go for timber bric! or stone. *eep it muted natural colours or paint it something "ibrant and "i"id. +nother consideration is outdoor lighting. #f the weather is nice then you want to be outside as often as possible. ,se the right lighting and you can stay outside as late as you li!e. Things to thin! about apart from general mood lighting are do you ha"e any features in the garden that would be enhanced with lighting. This could really raise your outdoor space another le"el. (hat about heating when it is a bit cooler. (ould a fire pit loo! good in your garden. Could you ta!e ad"antage of hard landscaping and get a stone wall and patio area to soa! up the sun during the day then this will slowly release the heat later on when you want to sit outside. Ha"e you thought of outside furnishing. (hat colours and styles do you li!e. How durable does it need to be. +re you going to lea"e the furniture outside or will you be putting it under co"er when not in use. That$s an awful lot to be thin!ing about then of course you will still need to consider your budget. +re you the sort of person who has not only the imagination to picture all of this but also the ability to bring it all together within your specific budget. #f so then get
