1. Get your lawn into shape

Look out of your window at your garden and also the biggest from you will likely see is your field. If it's a good, strong shape, it will set the entire garden on the right track. And remember, it doesn't have to be a rectangle! Try an oval, circle, square or oblong shape.

For a perfect cut, why not try the compact, lightweight and cordless Bosch Isio Shape and Edge Set, perfect for cutting bushes, small-leafed hedges and lawn edges with up to 50 minutes runtime.

2. Never skimp on your flowerbeds

A metre or more in-depth is a perfect size for a border, giving you enough space to put smaller plants at the front with taller ones behind.

But if you don't have room for metre-deep beds, you could place climbers at the back of the border so you can still get height in the planting. In terms of climbing plants, opt for an evergreen like clematis, which provides a beautiful and colourful display.

3. Landscaping sets the tone

The colour of your paving and the way it is laid can provide a strong design direction for the entire garden. For instance, grey or white stone set in an exceedingly random pattern can set the scene for a French country look.

Black or silver paving organised in a regular design will form the perfect backdrop to a sleek and modern scheme, while golden stone arranged in a mixed pattern creates an English country feel.

4. Coordinate your plants and paving

If you want to create the garden of your dreams, attention to detail is everything. Create a beautiful scheme by coordinating your blooms with your choice of paving. For example:

• Gray or white stone appearance nice with purple and white blooms.

• Black and silver paving looks amazing with strong colours such as red, orange and yellow.

• Golden paving works with flowers that have soft tones – pink, lavender, and chalky yellow.

5. Plan your planting

The best styles designs begin with structural plants infilled with pretty, flowering plants. So use evergreen shrubs at the end of each border and as for punctuation along the way. Include small shrubs such as box balls, or large evergreens, for example, mahonia, for bigger areas.

Once you have this frame, fill the gaps with pretty flowering plants. Try to stick to just five or six different types and arrange them in repeated patterns for a coordinated and harmonious effect.

6. Remember the four seasons

When you're choosing flowering plants try to make some of them 'out of season' performers so you have some year-round colour or put in spring and early summer bulbs to get the garden off to a great start.

7. Don't stint on seating space

When planning your garden, if you're thinking of having a table, consider the space and allow enough room for each person to be able to sit comfortably and pull out their chair without hitting anything. And remember, you'll also need room to walk around the table with every one seated. It takes up much more space than you might think!

8. Pay attention to your boundaries

In a small garden, boundary walls, fences or hedges may be the biggest element in view, so it's really important to get them to look good. They don't have to all be the same but try to provide visual links between them.

You could have the same type of fence, for instance, and grow climbers up them in coordinating colours. If you aren't able to change the fences, whitewash them or clad them with battens or trellis. Check with your neighbours first to establish whose fence it is and ask permission before doing any work.

9. Integrate your ornaments

The most important rule with garden ornaments is to nestle them in with the planting. An ornament or water feature (great for wildlife!) plonked in the centre of empty space is unlikely to look good. If it's too small it will look lost and something too big will overwhelm the space.

10. Create a garden room

A garden room is a great way to maximise and extend your space, whether you want a home office or a yoga studio. Think about ways to make your garden more than just an outdoor area to eat, drink and soak up the sunshine. House lovely has partnered with Crown Pavilions to launch a spread of latest garden rooms that have all been thoughtfully designed to become a natural extension of your home and garden space.

But, if space is limited in your garden, consider zoning areas of your garden. Think about however you can make it into a relaxing sanctuary with cosy garden interior decoration and tactile furnishings. For example, invest in an outdoor rug (Cuckooland sell a great selection of Fab Hab rugs made from recycled plastic) with chunky knit throws, lanterns and outdoor cushions for a warm, inviting and cosy feel.
