New build garden ideas need to be considered alongside the design stages of a self-build or extension project. Many homeowners make the mistake of leaving landscaping until the end and feel disappointed when the outside doesn't match their newly-built dream home. 

Garden designs are as varied as the home we build, so it is important to take inspiration for your home design to inform materials, shapes and zones for your outdoor area.
