Is it long, narrow, and driving you to distraction?

Or maybe it’s just a dull looking rectangle you don’t know what to do with…

Long, narrow and rectangular shaped gardens are among the most common shape of garden. But in order to get them to look great, you have to know how to handle them properly.

LONG-GARDEN1

I’m not talking about the usual plonking a patio or deck down and praying the plants you’ve just purchased survive long enough to invite the neighbours over for coffee...

NO, I’m talking about creating a truly stunning garden. One that you can relax in and enjoy after a hard day’s toil. A garden that doesn’t embarrass you when people come over.

It doesn’t have to cost a fortune to have a great looking garden. Nor does it have to be anywhere near as hard or as complicated as most garden design books and magazines seem to make it.

There is a trick to creating a really beautiful garden. What most experts won’t tell you is it’s virtually nothing to do with what plants or features you use. Yes, I did just say that.

The REAL key to creating a stunning garden, all comes down to one thing.

Design shape.

In fact, if you only focus on plants before design, it never brings you good results, no matter what they may tell you in gardening magazines (unless you are one of those very rare individuals that instinctively and automatically incorporates design principles)!

Beautiful gardens do NOT happen by accident. If you’re very lucky, a corner of a garden might come together nicely by accident, but not the whole garden.

So I urge you to focus on design first and foremost.

If you’ve already bought a lot of plants and features, it’s ok. You may have to shuffle things around a little bit, but all is definitely not lost. You really can improve your garden dramatically with the right shape lawn and patio as the picture below shows.

Before-After

The shape and way the materials work with one another is what has really made the big difference to the garden in the second picture; the plants are only the icing on the cake. If we’d just changed the plants and not adjusted the shape of the lawn and patio, the garden wouldn’t look much better than in the first picture.

You’ve no doubt already tried spending your money on beautiful plants and features but somehow, despite your best efforts, your garden just doesn’t look as good as you hoped.

Now you’re searching online, looking for ideas. Wonderful! You are on the right track and in the RIGHT place. I’m here to help you get the most from your garden.

GeraniumWhat makes a beautiful garden?

Plants with their lovely flowers and luscious leaves would be most people’s first choice but…

Plants are not the answer! Plants aren’t enough to create a great garden. Plants are the finishing touch not the starting point…

Most people make the mistake of focusing on plants and not enough on design – creating a great garden is all about shape and how different elements work together.

So If Plants Aren't The Key To A Great Garden What Is?

In a word SHAPE. How you shape the elements in your garden like your patio, deck, lawn and planting borders are ESSENTIAL to creating a stunning garden. Unless you get the shapes right first, it doesn't matter how nice your plants look, your garden will always look and feel disjointed, and will never look as good as you want it to.

Now watch the video below to see how long gardens can be transformed by altering the shape...

Does design really make much difference to a long garden? Find out in the video below...

RACHEL-AUTHORI’m Rachel Mathews and I've been an international garden designer for over 20 years. In that time, I’ve transformed every conceivable shape, style and size of garden from rolling acres to the tiniest of courtyards.

When I first learned garden design I found the process difficult. Despite the formal training, qualifications and all the books I read, there didn't seem to be a simple formula to follow. So, after many years of struggling, I developed my own formula that allowed me to design any size, shape or style of garden, quickly and easily (shame they didn't teach that at college, it would have saved me years of hard work!)...

It's PAINFUL watching people spend THOUSANDS on their gardens and NOT get good results...


piggy-bank1As a professional garden designer, I get to see first-hand what happens when people spend their money WITHOUT a design. It's heartbreaking for me to be called in AFTER someone has spent a small fortune on their garden and it looks AWFUL! 

We can usually rectify it, BUT if there had been a good design layout to begin with, it would have saved a LOT of time, trouble, effort and MONEY! 

The trouble is, it's REALLY easy for a garden to go wrong. It's not the fault of the landscaper. Nor is it how much money you spend on it. It all goes wrong for one reason. NOT having a proper design layout plan (no, the freebie sketch from the landscaper doesn't count as a proper design!).

Garden-Ideas

 

No one in their right mind would EVER dream of building a house without a plan to follow...

BeautifulGardenYet, that's EXACTLY what happens in the garden! The landscapers gets called in to 'landscape' the garden, they do just that, they landscape it. A patio or deck, pergola or a pond get built, which often, don't work well with the rest of the garden.

Everything looks disjointed and not quite right...

It's the equivalent of having a builder build you a house with no architect's plan to follow. 

What are the chances of the builder getting the flow, and the rooms, in the right place and proportion, in a style you like?

Slim and none.

With a little bit of design, however, then, WOW, you can really create something special (often for a lot less money and time, than the 'build it and hope' method outlined above).

This is one of the MAIN reasons why I've put ALL my knowledge as a professional, international, garden designer, and created an online garden design course that shows people the EXACT, simple, steps to successfully designing their own garden and guarantee them better results. Planning, really is the KEY to creating a great looking garden.

I’ve put together a collection of the best long, rectangular and narrow gardens that I’ve designed over the last 20 years or so into a straight-forward, comprehensive, downloadable online guide with accompanying video tutorials. I also share with you the cunning design formula that I use to design long gardens with.

The Long Garden Formula is like having your very own garden designer with you at your computer, demonstrating a simple system you can use to quickly and easily transform your garden.

Long gardens need different design shapes than wide or square gardens...

Every garden is different. Some are long and narrow, others are wide, small, large, square, the list goes on. This is what can make designing your garden difficult. Long, narrow gardens for instance, need to be made to look wider and with points of interest throughout in order to look really good.

Over the years I discovered that each type of garden has a set of things that needs to be done in order to achieve a successful design. Certain design shapes are effective for different types of garden.

GardenPlan

For example, in the garden plan featured on the left, you'll see the shapes used have made this small garden look much bigger. The trick is to use the right shapes for your garden and requirements.

I passionately believe that the 'average' garden can and should be so much more than average, which is why in 2009 I went on a teacher training course so that I could effectively teach my design formula to others.

The formula I've created makes it easy for anyone to transform any type of garden.

How The Long Garden Formula Course Will Help You

  • Immediately see why your garden doesn’t look as good as it should.
  • Show you step-by-step how to turn a garden that looks boring and dull into an exciting and beautiful garden.
  • Save yourself money by getting the right design for your garden without doing expensive ‘trial and error gardening’
  • Create a garden that you and your family can relax and enjoy spending time in.
  • Give you the knowledge to create the perfect design for your property, with the satisfaction of doing it yourself

The Long Garden Formula is suitable if your garden is like any of the ones shown below (and anything in between!):

LONGgdnTypes1The Long Garden Formula guide will take you through the entire planning process from beginning to end. You’ll be shown how to tackle any type of rectangular shape garden from long and narrow through to irregular shape.ipadLONGGF

Exceptionally good value

 

LONG-GARDEN2Hiring an hour of a good professional garden designer’s time is going to cost you at least £50, if not more. Also, the designer might give you some ideas on what you can do with your garden, but they are highly unlikely to show you how to implement them.

In the Long Garden Formula I will show you exactly how to completely transform your garden, quickly and easily, even if you’re in a restricted budget.

The training and professionally designed garden plans you’ll receive in the Long Garden Formula are easily worth £500 (which is the minimum amount you’d pay for one really good design). BUT, if you order today, you can get it for a fraction of that. So, order now and get it at the discounted price. It won’t be at this price too much longer.

Questions about the Long Garden Formula online course

  • q-icon Do I need much gardening knowledge to use the techniques covered in the course?

    No. Absolutely not. The course is designed to show both complete beginners and experienced gardeners a really simple design method that can be used to transform any size, shape or style of garden, quickly and easily.

  • q-iconWhat time and day does the course start?

    The course is 100% online, with immediate access. So you can view it any time that is convenient for you, as many times as you want.

  • q-icon I live in the southern hemisphere, will your course still be relevant for me?

    Yes. The design techniques shown in the course work on any garden, anywhere! The principles of design do not change. The landscaping materials and plants will need to suit your location but the underlying framework of good design is a constant and not location specific.

  • q-icon I'm an experienced gardener, will I really learn anything new?

    You will definitely learn something new. The methods I teach in the Long Garden Formula are ones that I’ve developed over the last 20 years as a professional garden designer, so you won’t have come across them anywhere else. Good design is a completely different skill to gardening. What you’ll learn in the course will enhance your existing knowledge.

  • q-iconHow long does it take for the course to arrive?

    The course is 100% online, so there’s no waiting for the postman. It’s instant access after your payment has gone though and you’ve clicked on the link contained in the welcome email, you’ll be sent your login information.

  • q-iconI’m not a professional landscaper, I just want to improve my own dull garden! Is this going to be really technical?

    The method I use to design a garden is nice and simple. I do cover some technical aspects, but in a way that’s not at all complicated.

  • q-iconHow long does it take to complete the course?

    That will depend on how much time you devote to it each week and your individual learning style. As a rough guide, the main design section of the Long Garden Formula could be completed over a weekend, but I would recommend you take 2 weekends to allow time for the information to be fully absorbed. The survey course can also be completed over a weekend.

  • q-iconDoes the course include a certification or qualification?

    No. The course has been primarily designed for homeowners who wish to improve their own garden without needing to attend a college course for weeks on end, so there is no qualification. That being said, I have had a lot of landscape professionals who’ve done the course and say that they’ve learned more from it than their professional certified training courses!

  • q-iconWhat happens if I get stuck on part of the course and need help?

    You can ask Rachel any questions you have about the course material in the member’s area of the website.

  • q-iconWill you be able to look at my final design and offer advice on it?

    This isn’t something that’s included in the course, but as a Long Garden Formula student you can purchase a plan review service from Rachel at a reduced cost, if you want her to double check your design.
