Plants and flowers are all very well and definitely contribute to a beautiful outdoor space, but for the ultimate garden we don't think you can wrong by creating a relaxing, gorgeous terrace. Perfect for a spot of casual dining, sunbathing on a hot day or simply somewhere to get away from it all for a few hours, how you decorate your space will really make a difference so don't be afraid to test some home design boundaries!

We've found some breathtaking terraces to show you today and they have all been masterminded by professional landscape architects, so you know they're going to be amazing. Sit back, relax and let us help you drift off into terrace-planning mode…

7. If the rain won't go away, a covered terrace will mean that you don't care
