When it comes to landscape, sometimes it is hard to imagine the perfect one for your garden. Should you add a few little trees? Which garden furniture would look better? Should you have a pool or a pond? Even when you do know what you want, sometimes it is extremely difficult to put it all together and that is where painting it comes in.
Painting a landscape can give you many new ideas as well as putting old ones into perspective. You do not have to be the best painter in the world, just as long as you understand it. Of course, one alternative to painting the landscape is purchasing landscape software which will show you with professional pictures, what your garden will look like with various different features. However, it is often more fun to simply paint the landscape and see it all come together yourself.

Or, perhaps you have seen a pretty waterfall and you are thinking of putting that into the landscape in your garden on a smaller scale? Whatever you want it is possible to create it and what better way to get ideas than to look at landscape paintings?
Other ways in which you can find ideas include magazines, the internet and by looking at your neighbors gardens to see if you like anything they have created.
