Manicured lawn, or flowering paradise? Water garden, or cactus sanctuary? Stone-covered or treed? These are all things you need to consider. You need to consider a number of factors when deciding what kind of yard you want to have. How much time do you want to spend taking care of it? Are you willing to pay someone else to take care of it, if you don’t have the time?
How much money are you willing to spend? Will it have enough room to accommodate all that food supplied for your garden parties? Will it match the rest of the neighbourhood? Do you even care if it matches the rest of the neighbourhood? It’s all up to you. Of course, there will be some sort of yard, and potentially a garden, in place when you buy the villa, and it might be easier to stick with what’s already there, making some mild modifications.
