Gardens are a delight to behold when they've been planned and executed perfectly, exactly capturing your specific wants and aesthetic. 

The question is, what is it that constitutes your absolute dream outdoor space? Are you mad for wildflowers? Crazy for hut tubs? Or potty for pergolas? Any experienced landscape architect will be able to create the perfect garden for you as long as you have a decisive list of things you want to include.

In case you need a little inspiration to get your gardening wish list curated, we honed in on some of the most covetable garden additions out there. Why not take a look and make a little check list for your new space? 

Go on, treat yourself… you deserve it!

For a sociable hot spot.

Include a wild section, if you can handle leaving the reigns in the hands of Mother Nature.

11. Try including a little serenity with a quiet zone

Complete with contemplative statutes. 

12. Maybe go all out with a hot tub

If luxury is your ultimate driving force.

13. Include a clever and unusual water feature

Dare to be bold!

14. Don't forget to include somewhere fun for the kids to play
