If you are looking for information to learn gardening and horticulture, you may be disappointed. Garden Design Magazine focuses more on the design side of gardening and landscaping rather than the technical issues of the trade.
Here is an overview of some of the content you can expect to see within Garden Design Magazine.
Landscape Design Product Reviews
This particular design magazine is a regular reviewer of products and tools related to garden and landscape designing. Most of the time the products that they review are on the high-end side and are quite expensive. If money is not an issue, you should enjoy this section of the magazine to help with buying decisions; otherwise you might not find the reviews to be of much help to you.
Garden Design Magazine contains a wide variety of information relating to landscape design and beautifying the curb appeal of your home. Some of the subjects include patio design ideas, outdoor entertainment suggestions, interviews with professionals, enhancing and improving your outdoor living space to name a few.
Individual issues of the magazine feature resources that would be helpful for the landscape design professional or home landscape design enthusiast.
The magazines official website features sections called “Ask a Gardener”, “I Love This Plant” and “Find a Designer” as well.
Garden Design Magazine includes and covers up-to-date information on landscaping events and gardening shows around the world.
Garden and Landscape Design Inspirational Projects
Subscribers to Garden Design Magazine love receiving the magazine to see and learn about new, fresh design ideas and concepts from landscape architects and landscape designers. This is one of the most inspiring features of the magazine. High definition photo layouts add to the landscaping eye candy. Check their website for more exclusive web-only photos in addition to the ones in the printed magazine.
Commonly the designs and projects list the plants that have been used in them, and often also include the plan itself. If you need creative landscape design inspiration, Garden Design Magazine will come through. But if you are looking for step-by-step instructions for completing the projects, you will be disappointed because you will not find them anywhere within the content.
To recap, if you are interested in landscape design trends and ideas or browsing through nature photos… you will probably really enjoy this magazine. On the other hand, if you are solely interested in the how-to’s of gardening and the technical aspects of landscaping and landscape design… skip a subscription to Garden Design Magazine as there are better magazines out there that will teach you those subjects.
