Functional design planning:

The next step in creating a suburban garden is designed planning. Planning has to be made according to the time and equipment available. The entire garden should be planned before planting. There are thousands of internet sites that offer you with different garden designs and plans with pictorial representations. We may include flowers and herbs or vegetable gardening. Planning before planting will save you hours of frustration later.


Once your suburban garden design is ready it’s time for planting.  Before planting enrich your soil with necessary organic manures. Make sure the plants receive 5 hours of direct sunlight a day. Planting combination plants can be more effective. With reduced garden spaces, it’s great to use plants that combine uses. For example, a fruit tree can also be used for shade. Mel Bartholomew’s ‘Square foot gardening’ offers necessary information on how deeply to plant, when to plant, plants for specific regions, when to harvest and much more.


A patio is a space in the garden where you can enjoy a meal with pleasing views. A well-laid patio with proper lighting and furniture creates an outdoor room that can serve multiple purposes. While planning a garden patio take factors like space, and pathway to the house into consideration.

Permeable surfaces:

The pavement in the garden should be laid on the permeable surface that will allow rainwater to pass through, adding back to the natural water table underground.  Rocks can be added to the gardens that are small and barren.

Planting on Raised bed gives plants the capacity the block views. There are lots garden designers available on and offline to help you with creating the best garden of your dreams.
