Country Living and Better Homes and Gardens both have lists of garden design ideas available on their websites as of 2015. Planting a border garden of trees, shrubs and perennial plants around front porches to add decoration to houses and clearing a woodland-style path through gardens to allow a closer view of plants and flowers are some of the ideas suggested by Country Living. Installing gardens in raised planters or in removed terrace tile crevices are also recommended for people dealing with limited space.

Better Homes and Gardens focuses on design ideas for small gardens. Adding gravel or crushed brick is described as a cheap and simple paving idea that allows rainwater to settle into the underlying soil, while digging a small pond within a garden is said to help manage wet or low areas and attract butterflies and birds. Installing a trellis or fence near garden beds to enable vertical plant growth and placing flower pots throughout gardens to add color are some of the other design ideas provided by BHG.
