How many zones?
Garden zoning can be as functional or as fanciful as you like. If you’d rather keep it to a few core zones such as a place to eat, a place to store things, and place to grow, that’s perfectly fine.
But, if you’re looking to transform your garden into something that feels a little special, you can introduce as many purposeful pockets as you like, to enjoy as often as you please.
Zoning is about opportunities, and making room for the things that you want to do in your outside space in the hope that they’ll encourage you to do precisely that.
