30+ Garden Ideas & Design InspirationFrom our garden to yours, we share garden design ideas from around the world for beautiful gardens big and small
A garden is never finished—it is a creation that evolves from season-to-season and year-to-year. Experienced gardeners are well aware of this reality and have even come to enjoy the ephemeral nature of their outdoor spaces. If a plant outgrows its previous home, or performs less than adequately, they enjoy selecting its replacement. When the seasons change, they enjoy seeing different plants take center stage and when drought or other climatic conditions strike, they enjoy meeting the challenge.
Gardeners are always tinkering, always improving, always dreaming. Once one section of their property is complete, they move onto another, eventually circling back for fine tuning. These articles are filled with ideas and inspiration for the home gardener. You'll find solutions for shady areas, container garden tips, meadow garden inspiration and much more.
