When it comes to home design, one of the places you can have the most fun is in your garden. In a manner of speaking, it’s like the Wild West out there! If you can come up with a unique way to incorporate am outlandish element into the outdoor space, then you can do it. It’s not like designing for a living room or kitchen. In the garden, almost anything goes… It’s full of wild plants, after all!
