Keep it romantic with a cottage or wild garden. Mass plantings of grasses and flowers lead to a garden that is relaxed and fun. This style of garden is also well known for romantic touches that lend a sense of fairytale-style magic. 

#5 Easy care

Whilst the outdoor living areas of your home should be an extension of your indoor living spaces, they should not become part of your weekly cleaning schedule. If you opt for easy care pieces that can take whatever the elements throw at them then you will be sure to enjoy your outdoor space rather than see them as another dreaded cleaning chore! It is generally best to stick to materials such as all-weather cane, rattan teak, cedar and most metals.
