12 garden mistakes to avoid, according to gardening experts

Most of us don’t have the time or luxury to plan our garden from scratch. We inherit the outdoor space when we move into a house, then tackle any changes and new garden ideas on a project-by-project basis. That’s great for allowing our garden to evolve with our lifestyle, but it’s also an easy way for garden design mistakes to happen. 

We might put in a patio that doesn’t get any sunlight, plant flowers in soil that doesn’t suit, or create a high-maintenance space when we’d rather be relaxing on a lounger.
