t If you’re creating a new border, don’t be mean with it. Borders need space, at least 1.5m from front to back. Anything less means you won’t be able to achieve any combinations or depth, so shrubs will spill over your lawn or obstruct a path.
t Keep edges crisp. If you keep your lawn and path edges neat, it brings a whole feeling that the garden is well designed.
t Consider how your corners are going to be used. Could they incorporate a seating area, a children’s garden or just a shed? Themed corners enhance a well-designed garden.
