Garden space can be limited in city centres, but with these tips any small garden design can still look good no-matter how big or small.
Install a trellis or hanging planters on one of the fences surrounding the garden to create a colourful “living wall” and remove shrubbery and flowerbeds to free up space on the ground.
Use interlocking paving, decks, or stones to create different zones in your garden and add variety to your small space.
Opt for light coloured surfaces, stones and paints to reflect light and open up the garden.
Water can reflect natural sunlight to make a space feel bigger – whether it’s a small pond, fountain, or a geometric waterfall, small water items can achieve a big impact in a little space.
Create an outdoor room in your garden using a gazebo or pergola to set the scene and add some outdoor furniture to complete the look.
