This will depend on the amount of space you have, the type of plants you're planting and what kind of look you prefer. It is important to plan this design as carefully as you can because after you've put a specific design in place it can be really hard to change it. Let's take a look at some of the most interesting possibilities for designing a garden of your own.

When designing their gardens, many people pay attention to the colors of their plants but not the textures. An important element is plant texture which often means the way a plant looks and feels to the touch. Even though some people like it when plant colors are complimentary to each other, it sometimes isn't practical. What if you are planting a garden where almost everything is green in color. You can make your garden more interesting and create variety by varying the textures of your plants. Some plants have foliage that's smooth, while others have a coarse feel. Pay attention to the different textures of plants, and arrange them in a way that creates some diversity. A garden style that is simple but still exotic is the Japanese garden. You might want to include some of these elements in your own garden. There are the traditional plants such as the bonsai or cherry trees that are used in Japanese gardens you might consider. You could enhance the look of your garden with some Japanese style ornaments or try other Japanese garden styles such as the Zen rock garden. To give your garden a relaxing atmosphere, an attractive feature that can be added is a bamboo fountain. Adding stone lanterns can also help create the atmosphere of a Japanese garden. These will uniquely light up your garden at night and are energy efficient and are also attractive in the daylight hours.

When designing your garden, you may want to think about lighting. So many people believe that gardens are only meant for the daytime, when the sun is out, and forget about them altogether after the sun has set but you can get all sorts of pleasure from a well lit garden at night too. With the right lighting, gardens can seem welcoming and even a little bit magical at night. You need to focus first on low voltage lights because they save energy and look quite a lot better. Solar lights, which come in all sorts of different sizes and shapes are a fantastic way to light your garden. Experiment with your lights until you figure out how to place things so that they are lit in the best possible way.
