Change the masonry style

In case you decide to renovate the garden, you may also need to take a closer look to the exterior walls of your house. If you do not want to spend a lot of money, you can remake just the wall near the garden – this will completely change its whole aspect. There are many masonry styles, depending on the materials, artisan and result you want, so you will have different alternatives to choose from. If you want a traditional or rustic outcome, then you should opt for natural stone, while an official aspect will be perfectly achieved by using brick. You can also try a modern style, neat, made of stucco or other artificial materials. Remember that when it comes to landscaping an outdoor space, masonry plays an important role, which is why it should match the rest of the area. If you go for stones, for instance, make sure they fit the whole context of the landscape: since these will probably be used for the terrace and path too, remember to use the same model.

Do not forget about the greenery

Since we are speaking about an outdoor space, plants are also very important. Choosing them is not as easy as it may seem because they have to be not only practical but also beautiful and vivid, in order to complete the final design. The structure of the area and the final style of the garden are defined by the plants. Whether you choose a contemporary style, a conventional, formal or natural one, make sure the ecosystem you create will be in perfect match.
