They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery so you should feel free to take inspiration from these amazing front gardens that have been landscaped by professional gardeners

Filled to the brim with great ideas, cohesive themes and stylish plants, all of these contribute to an amazing first impression for guests that visit the respective houses and we want the same for you. Take a look and see which gardening styles really speak to you, then get to creating something similar!

1. Mediterranean flair doesn't have to stay on the continent. We love the addition of a water feature

2. Minimalist gardens can still be impactful if you have a central feature

3. What could be more romantic than a little wild garden feel?

4. Perfectly maintained spaces give a fantastic idea of what your interior looks like

5. Don't just pick one material and stick with it, mix things up a little! Shingle and mulch contrast gorgeously

6. Multi-level gardens with stone beds are a hard-hitting style home run! So perfect for a modern home

12. Full to bursting beds look stunning and can easily detract from a less than perfect house façade

13. We are in awe of this lovely lavender lead-in! It looks colourful, but just imagine the heavenly scent

14. If you're not a natural gardener opt for something more low-maintenance, such as a cacti garden

15. After a long day at work, what could be nicer than coming home to a Zen space? This really puts the 'om' in home!
