My clients, family, and friends are always interested in what fresh ideas I, as a landscape architect, have for them that will add something new to their outdoor spaces yet not empty their bank accounts! Here are my favorite 11 ideas for 2011. Enjoy!

Small Signature

#11 A Pond in a Pot!

No garden is too small for a water feature in a pot.

#10 Cracked Stone Pathways

Re-cycle old stone or broken concrete to create a new pathway.

#9 Mirrors in Your Garden

Mirrors, like water, reflect light around the garden and add a bit of mystery.

#8 Start a Kitchen Herb Garden

Save money and enjoy fresh herbs right outside your kitchen door!

#7 Paint a Wall!

In a day or a weekend you can transform, unify or accent with color that’s not living.

#6 Add a Fountain in One Hour!

Portable spill way fountains make it possible for everyone to enjoy the sound of water in their garden.

#5 Turn Night into Day

Don’t limit your enjoyment of your outdoor spaces to the day time hours only!

#4 Succulents are No Longer a Wall Flower!

Explore the hundreds of succulent varieties that can add new life and interest to your garden.

#3 Enjoy a Meadow Instead of a Lawn

A fresh new look that reduces your water bill, attracts wildlife and reduces your green footprint.

#2 Create “A Secret Retreat”

A secret retreat gives you a private place to relax and enjoy all of your beautiful plants!
