All outdoor spaces are unique in their own way. But if you're really looking to up the ante in yours, we recommend take a cue from these lovely cottage gardens. They're backyard oases with a laid-back, charming and romantic feel. Unlike other gardens, ones in this style usually have a casual layout and mix flowers, herbs and veggies freely.
If this sounds like the type of backyard you want, scroll through these photos to get some inspiration for your own space.
Another great yard idea? Container gardens!
