There are literally thousands of websites on the Internet where you can get free gardening and landscaping ideas. The easiest way to find this information is to do a Google search, but there are also gardening and landscaping blogs and forums where writers are always adding new items. If you’re not into the Internet, rather try your local library or even some of the many magazines that are available on the subjects. Don’t rule out your local garden centre. Many garden centres have landscaped areas showing off the plants and materials that they sell. Before you think about installing a new landscaping feature, make sure you check that it will fit and also look right in your garden! Make a list of your ideas and then carefully consider which will work best.
You should start by taking a walk around your garden in order to get a good sense of what can be achieved. Check how good the drainage is and also check out the slopes and levels of your garden. Finally draw a plan to check that everything will fit. If you are new to gardening and landscaping, before you start work take a little extra time to learn the basics in order to implement your ideas. Free advice is often available from friends and family. This is imperative if you have never done any work like this before. You can also find free landscaping ideas in books which you may already have at home or that you can borrow from friends or family. They don't necessarily need to be landscaping or gardening books, but any that have pictures that inspire you.
