1. Plant & Flower
You already have a draft about what your garden will be like and what you are going to put. Next, make a decision. Go to a garden shop and consult with a professional. You can choose to have plants or flowers in your desire area but consider the level of sunlight. Is the area always getting the sun? Choose the types according to the climate.

If you choose to have an annual plant in your garden, keep in mind that it will need to be replaced every year. Perennial plant needs regular care like pruning and shaping.
You can mix and match plant and flowers to create a layer of height. The best way is to ask for recommendation from staff at garden shop.
2. Pot Choosing
Besides having colourful flowers, you can add more fun by adding creative pots. Some people have a DIY pot by painting and decorating it, some use vintage can or bucket, some use an old tire and some use hanging pots to decorate the wall. An important thing about planting with pot is size. Know that how big your plant will grow and have a proper size of the pot. Always change it when it grows bigger.
If you want to plant a tree, concern about your space. Some trees grow high up and have wide branches, which can damage your house or be an obstacle. Choose the proper size of a tree. Choose if you want an evergreen tree or deciduous.
Adding a tree to your house can enhance the design of your garden. It creates cool air and helps in refreshing air.
A backyard can be muddy in the rainy season. To keep your yard clean and tidy, add pavers for your walkway and cleaning corner. You can add garden lighting along the way to create beautiful scenery in evening.
