Where to start - Begin by sketching out the shape of your space to visualise the garden spece available. Include major features that are natural to your environment such as established trees, rock areas and water features. 

Create a destination in your backyard, such as a garden hut or gazebo, that can draw the eye. Create subtle visual depth in the range of plants that guide the path and surrounding areas can create the illusion of a green oasis in your backyard. 

Feature statues and water effects can create an element of art. Separated by lawn, isolate pathways, lush foliage & a swing, this just might be the inspiration you need for your backyard paradise!
