THEMES. They focus your design.
Each issue will be themed, so we can focus this resourceful content in a fresh and creative way. So why not start with THEMES, for our first theme? Heck yes!
What is a theme? It's the idea that pulls all the elements of a garden together.
Why is it important to focus your design? Designing a garden is similar to writing a paper. Before you write it's important to choose a topic, then have the content to support it. You can write about thousands of things, but the topic helps you focus. This is the same in garden design. There are thousands of ways to design your garden, but by narrowing in on a topic or theme, choices become a lot easier, plus it helps make your design cohesive and unified. Honestly, it's a lot more fun too and your creativity just spills over. Themes can be inspired by your collections, travels, hobbies, favorite foods, or anything that you can imagine.
