4. We've always rather fancied the idea of growing our own food and this innovative back garden is giving us the final push we need!

5. There's a lot to be said for a little tradition and this English country garden is exactly what we picture, in terms of swish outdoor spaces with character.

6. How about a little stark but stunning garden minimalism? We love the dramatic high white walls and simple planting.

7. Talk about sociable garden eye-candy! You'd never want to eat indoors again if you had this set-up in place!

8. The neatness here is incredible and it's thanks, in part, to the use of artificial grass! That's something we'll be trying.

9. Small spaces work so well when injected with a huge amount of zingy colour! The rich purples here are perfect against white fencing.

17. The views, the natural wood, the connection to the house and… THE HOT TUB all make this a garden worth staring at for a few minutes! Not to mention copying!

18. Have you ever wanted to create a living room look, out in your garden? You will now! Just look at all the seating and shelving! So unusual.

19. Green on green on GREEN! Now THIS is a back garden that has retained a charming focus on the flora and fauna in place! What a gorgeous jungle!
