Step 1: Select a Theme


The successful heritage garden plan starts with a theme that unites the garden, the style of the home, the weather and the functional uses of the garden. These planning steps apply to a new home or a home with an existing garden. A theme utilizes a central component, such as a specimen tree(s), groupings of similar plants, compatible colors, and recurring groups of plants and/or plants that are found together in nature.
  • The specimen tree theme
  • The dominant plant theme
  • Compatible colors (flower)
  • Recurring plant group theme
  • Natural plant grouping theme

The garden can also be planned according to functional uses that are desired, including:

  • Wildlife garden
  • Edible garden plants
  • Cut flower garden
  • Fragrant garden
  • Shade garden
