Small Garden Ideas Pt 2 – How to landscape titchy-tiny spaces

In this small garden ideas part 2 video we’re going to look at how you can successfully landscape really tiny gardens. I’ll also reveal the answer to the last week’s challenge question. In the small garden ideas part 1 video blog, I asked you what was so important about the planting of the Moroccan styled courtyard garden at Casa Aire de Lecrin.

This week’s questions:

In the first segment of the video, where we look at the collection of geraniums in pots on the stairs,  I mention how important the structures, the pots and the ornaments are, but there was something I forgot to say – another reason that made the plants look good together – what is is?

The second question is embedded in the video – on the balcony garden, other than the colour, what is it that makes this look so good? Leave your answer in the comments below – not trick questions this week, so much easier, judging by the excellent answers you left last week!

If you’d like to visit the beautiful guest house that’s featured in the video, please visit: http://www.casa-aire-de-lecrin.com

In this video, you will learn:

  • How even the tiniest spaces can be made to look larger.
  • How vertical elements can make a space look larger.
  • How the correct use of features can make a garden look more interesting.
  • How you can create impact by using a limited colour palette.
  • How you can have wall pots, without messy walls!

I hope you’ll see by the end of the video how any space, no matter how small, can be completely transformed by doing very little. Great gardens do not have to cost a fortune and size really shouldn’t be a limitation!

Many thanks to Lesley O’Brien for her photos of the patio gardens in Córdoba.

Just to up the anti a bit, I have a little challenge for you!

I want you to pay particular attention to the planting that has been used in the garden in the video. There’s something very important about it, that we didn’t discuss in the video. What it is that I want you to notice about the planting in this garden (it is a bit of a trick question)? Just leave your answer in the comment box below or on the Successful Garden Design Facebook Page.

In this video, you’ll learn:

• How to double the visual size of any small garden with the careful use of garden mirrors.

• How to create private areas, even in a really tiny garden.

• The KEY to successfully using mirrors well in a garden.

• The importance of colour, and how to combine the right colours in a smaller garden.
