5 Garden Landscaping Blogs Worth Following

The internet is a rich source of inspiration for literally every kind of pastime, and this is both a blessing and a curse. It’s a blessing in the sense that almost every piece of information known to man is available on the internet, but a curse in the sense that to find the information or inspiration that you want, you have to wade through an agonising amount of irrelevant and illiterate content. This is certainly true when it comes to landscape design, and just like with everything else on the internet, you have to know where to look in order to find the good stuff. This week, we’re going point you in the direction of quality landscaping inspiration by listing five of our favourite blogs.
