Relaxation was clearly what the owner of this garden had in mind. A paved patio
for outdoor entertaining, vine-covered fences for privacy, and a lush and natural looking water feature all make the most of this space and come together to create a little oasis.
Deciding on the must-haves in your garden can also help you decide on a budget. Try to spend money on materials that are highly visible and need to be of good quality — patio paving, stone walkways, furniture, etc. Offset these costs by saving in other areas — such as cutting out on sprinkler systems (if possible), or scrounging up other materials and outdoor accessories at recycling centers or flea markets.
