What do you want in your outdoor garden? Do you want a place to relax and unwind from a busy day? Would you like a place to entertain? Do you need space for children to play?

Your garden is yours and yours alone. Only you can decide how best to decorate and make it work for your family. But while you are planning out your garden, it can help to know what you are trying to accomplish. Once you know what you are going to use your garden for, it makes it easier to decide where to spend your hard earned money.

However, even a functional garden should still be a place to relax. You can make your garden patio a haven from the daily world by remembering the five senses in your garden décor: sight, smell, sound, touch, and taste. Incorporating each of these into your garden will make it a more holistically pleasant place to be.

You can also choose to style your outdoor garden décor around a central theme. Some common themes include memory, celestial, fantasy, natural, and Japanese. It helps to look through some magazines and choose the style which most appeals to you. Even in the smallest space, you can express yourself through your chosen style.

What you put into your garden is going to depend on both your space and your needs. For example, do you have room or desire for a patio? If so, then you’ll need furniture, decorations, and maybe even some potted plants. You can also style your patio as an outdoor dining room, perhaps even with an outdoor kitchen. The possibilities are limitless!
