Flat gardens might look easier to manage, but taking your blooms up through a number of different levels really makes a huge visual impact. It's also a great way to tackle an uneven space, if you don't fancy hiring a digger and levelling everything out.

Prepare to leave gardening professionals in shock and awe with your own talents, as we have some inspiring gardens for you to look at today. Pick and choose your favourite elements and go to town!

1. Industrial garden styling really works for stepped spaces. Look at those gabions!
