Walk around your yard and make a list of what has to stay and what your will need to work around.  For example, you might be limited by a large tree, or the location of the garage. Make note of practical considerations, where to put the refuse or the compost pile, or what to do about an unattractive view.  Decide what features you consider essential; it could be a water feature or a vegetable garden.


Use this checklist prior to starting your garden design. Keep in mind the essential features and try to incorporate as many as possible within the space of your garden and without sacrificing the design of your garden.
