Japanese themed garden

Is your garden planted out to a theme or did you just fill it up with plants that you like without thinking too much about it?

Why should you bother with a theme, it looks pretty good doesn’t it?

That’s a lot of hard work isn’t it?

Garden themes don't have to be complicated.

Your theme can be very general like a vegetable garden or a flower garden. You can show how creative you are with a theme garden, and theme gardens show something about the owner of the garden.

Actually, a patch of lawn with just a hills hoist does that as well, but you’re not one of those are you?

If you have any questions about how to create a theme garden why not write in?
