For people who love gardening, their patch of land is often their pride and joy.
It is a place where they can escape and lose themselves in completing gardening tasks, which they will consider to be a labour of love.
Whatever the size and position of your plot, a bit of hard work and a lot of planning can work wonders to achieve a beautiful vista, to be viewed from the comfort of your living room or kitchen.
It does not matter if you live on a large country estate in Devon, a small terraced house in the north of England or one of the fabulous luxury villas on The Golden Mile in Marbella, if you have a real passion for gardening your plot will be your pride and joy.
It is, however, important to be aware of any restriction within the garden. For instance, if you have a small, shady courtyard, it is important to choose slower growing and more compact plants.
Gravel would make a maintenance free option for an exposed south facing garden, as an alternative to a lawn or border containing delicate flowers.
Ensuring that such lower maintenance choices are made will allow you more time to enjoy your garden, so as it does not become a chore and remains a pleasure!
